Ipswich Christmas market

Ipswich Christmas market

Those who venture into Ipswich town centre this weekend will find the Christmas spirit in full flow.

The three-day continental Christmas Market started today.

More than 60 stalls, many of them local, are offering festive treats and gifts, and a food court has been set up near Giles Circus.

The market, which has been organised by the Borough Council, will be open from 10am to 6pm tomorrow and from 10am to 4pm on Sunday.

Stalls start from the Town Hall and run along Princes Street and Queen Street.

Ipswich Borough Council car parks (except Fore Street, Athena Hall and Cromwell Square) have a £1 an hour tariff and there will be free park and ride buses running on Sunday.
