If you take a walk around Suffolk's county town you cannot fail to notice some of the public artwork on display.

Ranging from murals to statues of sporting heroes, they are dotted around Ipswich – sometimes subtly placed, sometimes larger then life.

Have a go at our 11 question quiz to test your knowledge of the art around Ipswich.
