How well do you know Ipswich?

Last week we showed you these images of hidden Ipswich and asked how many you could correctly identify.

The photos form part of a new campaign entitled “We know a place where . . . “, which has been launched by Ipswich Cental to draw in visitors to the town. It is designed to show Ipswich in a different light, and prove there is more to the town than meets the eye.

A video, focusing on the more unexpected features of Ipswich, has also been created as part of the campaign.

In the final frame it reveals where it was shot.

It will be used by Ipswich Central to promote the town over the summer and could also be shown at independent cinemas in the region.

Some of the photos that we published were quite obvious, featuring some of the town’s most iconic buildings or events. However others showed part of hidden Ipswich, or feature items that people had no idea were on sale in the town.

Readers have been submitting their guesses online and today we can finally reveal exactly where each of the 20 photos were taken.

How many did you get right?

Did you correctly guess that number 14 showed the architecture in Christchurch Park? And did you know that the bright coloured skateboards in the first photo are on sale at Wahoo Clothing, in Dogs Head Street?

The red Coffelink van featured in photo 10 was correctly identified by many of our online readers, but did you spot that number 4 was the inside of the controversial Question Mark situated outside UCS on the Waterfront?
