Ipswich has been named one of the most up-and-coming places to live in the UK. 

The Suffolk town has been named in the top 10 places to live in the country by the digital platform Rest Less. 

According to Rest Less the town has gone from "strength to strength" in recent years. 

They said: "The town of Ipswich, situated not far from the Suffolk coast, has previously suffered from a reputation that labelled it as one of the worst places to live in England.

"However, following significant investment in recent years, the town has gone from strength to strength in terms of development. While officially still a town, Ipswich is known as one of the fastest-growing cities in the UK.

"In 2020 Ipswich was the only UK destination to make it onto TripAdvisor’s list of top emerging destinations in the world, and in October 2023 funds of £7.9 million were approved to develop the town centre and address empty retail space.

"With this project due to kick off later this year, it’s clear that Ipswich has a lot to be excited about."
