Local Events

Ipswich & Suffolk play host to numerous events throughout the year and the Salthouse provides the perfect central location to stay, especially if you want to do things in style.

There's something for everyone in Suffolk, whether you're organising an outing with friends, or getting colleagues together for business events. Moored on our doorstep we even have a luxury cruiser, yacht and crew standing by to take you where you want. 

Here are just a few of the upcoming events...


We're proud to support the newly renamed University of Suffolk, in what is great news for both Ipswich and the county.

Suffolk's only university campus is set to be renamed after being granted independence, and is set to be a stand-alone university from August 1.

It is likely to have its own Chancellor and Vice Chancellor – and have a similar administrative structure to other universities, including being able to validate its own degrees. The move could be worth £25m to £30m a year to the county’s economy.
