Quay Place


Quay Place, Heritage & Wellbeing Centre offers a stunning and unique setting where people can enjoy a wide range of heritage and wellbeing activities.

Built during the 15th Century St Mary-at-the-Quay Church in the heart of the Ipswich docklands the Church was a place of sanctuary for the local community. One of only three medieval churches built in this area, the past wealth and prosperity of the city is reflected in the decoration, and in the carving of the spectacular double hammer beam roof.

Throughout the decades as the fortunes of Ipswich have risen and fallen like the tides, St Mary at the Quay stood steadfastly, serving the community that surrounds it. Thanks to an innovative regeneration partnership between two charities, Suffolk Mind and The Churches Conservation Trust, aided by £3.6 million of Heritage Lottery Fund money, the Church has been saved from the threat of decay to become Quay Place, to remain once again a much loved building in the heart of the community which many future generations can enjoy.

The restoration and rejuvenation of the building has blended wellbeing and heritage together to create a tantalising fusion of old and new offering something for all to enjoy and experience.

At Quay Place you can:

  • Learn and enjoy the diverse history of the Ipswich waterfront in an engaging and interactive way through a range of heritage activities and events for all the family
  • Use the space as a modern venue for community, corporate, wellbeing and heritage activities
  • Energise and refresh both body and mind through a range of wellbeing activities from yoga to singing workshops, and archaeology to art

Ipswich Means Business Meeting

What an amazing building. You must go in and have a coffee and sit in the atmosphere they have produced. It is very calming and conducive to the work they are doing. The lecture/studio rooms have been decorated very lovingly and are available for hire.
