How To Find Us

By Car

From the direction of Cambridge, Bury St Edmunds & Norwich

Leave A14 at the slip road signed “A12 Colchester, London” and “A1214 Ipswich West”. Turn left at the traffic lights at the end of the slip road and follow the A1214 for 3 miles into central Ipswich going straight at all roundabouts and traffic lights. At the end of Handford Road, at the roundabout with a sculpture in the centre turn right into Civic Drive, (dual carriageway) then immediately left into Elm Street. Our offices are then on the right hand side.

From the direction of Colchester & London

Go straight over the large round about where the A12 meets the A14. Leave by the exit signed Ipswich West and follow the A1214 for 3 miles into central Ipswich going straight at all roundabouts and traffic lights. At the end of Handford Road at the roundabout with a sculpture in the centre turn right into Civic Drive, (dual carriageway) then immediately left into Elm Street. Our offices are on the right hand side of Elm Street. To access our car park take the first right in Elm Street, Curriers Lane, and the car park entrance is immediately on the left.


Parking is available at the office for clients to use whilst attending an appointment with us. To take advantage of this please call in advance to reserve a space and, on arrival, give details of your registration number to the receptionist. There is also ample public parking nearby – Metered street parking opposite the office in Elm Street (for short stays only). A large underground car park (Spiral) at the nearby Civic Centre, entered from the roundabout on Civic Drive.

By Bus

The main bus station in Ipswich town centre, the Old Cattle Market, is just a 7 minute walk from our office. The majority of local bus routes stop here on route.

The quickest way to walk to our office when disembarking at the Old Cattle Market is to walk in the direction of The Plough pub. At the pub turn left onto Dog’s Head St. Continue straight over the mini roundabout (passing Revolution) onto Falcon St. Continue straight when you reach the cross roads (with Bowmans on the corner) onto Friars St. This road then bends around to the right as you reach the Willis Building, where you’ll need to turn right onto Princes Street. Follow this road as it bends to the left (please note the road name changes to Museum St and then Elm St along the wat). Eventually you will pass St. Mary’s Church on the your right – we are located almost opposite the church on the corner.

If for whatever reason you are unable to walk, you can use the following bus connections from the Old Cattle Market Station, all of which will take you to the Willis Building:

92 – 93 – 94 – 97 – 98

Most of these buses arrive every 20 minutes during peak weekday hours. We are then just a 2-3 minute walk from the Willis Building bus stops.

By Train

Ipswich railway station is on the main London Liverpool Street to Norwich line, about an hour and ten minutes from London. Taxis are available at the station. Alternatively, our office is an easy walk of about 10 minutes:

When you leave Ipswich Train Station main entrance, cross the road and walk straight over the bridge (you’ll be able to see Ipswich Town FC’s ground in front of you). Continue straight until you reach a large cross road with traffic lights every side. Cross the road to the side where Curve Bar is and turn left onto the residential cul-de-sac that runs parallel to the main road. You’ll then reach another cross road and find our office located on the corner to your right.
