Ipswich is a large town and a non-metropolitan district – it is the county town of Suffolk. Ipswich is located on the estuary of the River Orwell. Nearby towns are Felixstowe, Needham Market and Stowmarket in Suffolk and Harwich and Colchester in Essex.

The town of Ipswich overspills the borough boundaries significantly, with 85% of the town’s population living within the borough at the time of the 2001 Census, when it was the third-largest settlement in the United Kingdom’s East of England region, and the 49th largest urban area in the United Kingdom. The modern name is derived from the medieval name ‘Gippeswick’, probably taken from the River Gipping which is the non-tidal section of the River Orwell.  As of 2007, the borough of Ipswich is estimated to have a population of approximately 128,000 inhabitants.
