Culturally there is much to admire - a choice of 2 theatres and a multiplex cinema and there is also a wide range of wine bars and restaurants. Leisure facilities are plentiful and diverse - there are four sports centres, the Crown Pools swimming complex and a ski centre which allows for all-weather practice. Portman Road the home of Ipswich Town Football Club and Hintlesham Gol;f Club are only a short distance away. Other top quality golf courses in the area include Woodbridge, Purdis Heath and Felixstowe.
There is a choice of schooling in the area with junior schools at either Ranelagh Road in Ipswich or Sproughton and secondary education at Chantry or Claydon. Independent schools in the area include co-educational Ipswich School and St Joseph's College and the Ipswich High School for Girls which cater for children from the age of 5 to 18.
The Suffolk Heritage coastline with its internationally renowned Minsmere Bird Reserve and Snape Maltings is only 40 minutes away, whilst much closer is "Constable Country" with the villages of Flatford and Dedham, made famous by the artist John Constable.
