General information


Woodbridge is a market town of some considerable character located on the west bank of the River Deben, a stretch of tidal water much enjoyed by those who sail and row and for the less energetic there are appealing walks along the river bank from Kyson Point, passing the Quay, the Tide Mill and marinas and continuing to Wilford Bridge at Melton.

Woodbridge has very good facilities for a town of its size including an array of independent specialist shops trading alongside the multiples, restaurants, hotels, a cinema, swimming pool and a railway station.

From Woodbridge there are connections through to Ipswich, Suffolk's county town, from where frequent services run through to London's Liverpool Street station.

There are good opportunities to play sport in the surrounding district with golf courses both inland and on the coast at Aldeburgh and Thorpeness. In addition there are many attractive walks and rides in the picturesque Suffolk countryside.

The town also has schools for students of all ages in the state and independent sectors.
