Wickham Market

Wickham Market is situated to the north-east of Ipswich. Take the A12 from Ipswich for 15 miles, signposted at the end of the dual carriageway.
Technically Wickham Market is not a town (even though it has a population of over 2,500) but a very large village! There are a wide variety of shops and restaurants. Conveniently located for visitors and within easy reach 18 hole golf course at Ufford Park, Easton Farm Park, Sutton Hoo, Snape Maltings and Framlingham Castle.

A curious thing happens when you step off a train at Wickham Market station, you are not in Wickham Market but in fact in the village of Campsea Ashe some 2 miles from Wickham Ð so if you are intending to arrive by train, you have been warned!
