Ipswich is not a very happening place (as it is a small city). But if you live somewhere close to the station or marina, you will be fine. It is also known as the town center and has restaurants and Cineworld. So try find staying in areas that are just 10 min walk from here. The bus goes from the train station to the Adastral Park (so easy to commute if you don’t own a car). The other bus route is from Siloam Place. You can try this place. I used to live here - many people stay here who work in BT.
Also, London is 1 hour 15 minutes away from Ipswich. So if you are close to the train station, you can easily be in London in about an hour which is pretty cool.
Message me if you have any questions.
