With Game of Thrones dominating everyone's social media feeds, there is a lot of talk about dragons at the moment but have you seen the beasts lurking on some of the ancient buildings in Ipswich?

In honour of St George's Day a walking tour, which started at Ipswich Tourist Information Centre, set off to find the hidden dragons of Ipswich.

Leading the walk around the town centre was knowledgeable Ipswich tour guide Elizabeth Serpell who thinks it is “sad that more people don't talk about St George's Day”.

Mrs Serpell added: “We should celebrate our national day, wouldn't it be nice if we had a Bank Holiday for St George's Day.”

Julie Greenhalgh, from Ipswich, joined the walk. She said: “I know when St George's Day is but I wouldn't say I celebrate it.”

One of the first stops on the tour was the Ipswich Ancient House, where you can see St George riding a dragon on the outside of the building.
