From Portman Road to the Newmarket Racecourse, here are some of the best places to spot celebrities in Suffolk.

1. Ipswich Waterfront

To kick off is the popular Ipswich Waterfront which is where many surprised passersby bumped into popstar Peter Andre. 

The pop star's brother owns a barbers shop in the town and supported the shop since it opened in 2017.

With the draw of sitting and watching the world go by at a nearby eatery, it probably will not be the last time a famous face will be seen down at the waterfront. 

2. Portman Road
