Ipswich was a prosperous port from medieval times until the 17c. It was granted its first charter by King John in 1200. The town actually retains much of its Anglo Saxon street layout and the Victorian West Dock, once the largest in the world, makes a fascinating walk. The town has many medieval churches. The population is around 129,000.
