As part of the Ipswich Heritage Open Days, Suffolk Archives will be delivering guided tours of The Hold, our new archive and heritage centre on the Ipswich Waterfront, on the campus of the University of Suffolk. This will be an opportunity to understand the design and function of the building and enjoy Suffolk’s archival heritage shared through various interpretation points around the building.

As part of the national theme, Edible England, we will also be showcasing our archives relating to food, particularly in our café area. You will also be able to enjoy our garden trail, discovering the native herbs and plants used in local cookery and medicine.
