Ipswich Haven Marina HEART OF THE TOWN

Ipswich Haven Marina has been open since May 2000 and was officially opened at a ceremony in July 2000 by Sir Robin Knox-Johnston when he predicted that “Ipswich Haven Marina will fast become the star attraction on the east coast”.

The management team are confident that we have maximised our “attraction” and now can be proud that after our most recent extension we have 320 berths and 30 dedicated visitor berths that attract almost 2000 visiting yachts to our marina annually.

The marina is situated at the head of the beautiful River Orwell. We are to be found amidst the historic and regenerated Ipswich Waterfront with its access to superb facilities and amenities. Restaurants, cafes, shopping centres, cinemas, museums, parks and historic buildings are all within a few minutes stroll from the marina.  We hope that our many visitors will continue to enjoy visiting us in 2021.

Ipswich Railway station is only a ten minute walk away and regular mainline services reach London, Cambridge, Norwich and Harwich.

Our Marina is managed by a friendly team of professional people dedicated to ensure that your stay with us is made pleasant and enjoyable.

We look forward to seeing you.

Phil and the Ipswich Haven Marina Team
