Somerleyton Hall & Gardens

Somerleyton Hall
Lowestoft NR32 5QQ

The grounds of Somerleyton Hall have been home to high status buildings since the post conquest Norman era. In 1240 the existing manorial Hall was rebuilt by Sir Peter Fitzosbert as a magnificent country house on the site of the original medieval Hall. Four centuries later the house was further enlarged and restyled by John Wentworth and transformed into an archetypal East Anglian Tudor-Jacobean mansion. The Hall's final and most drastic alteration took place in 1843 under new ownership of a wealthy Victorian entrepreneur Samuel Morton Peto who hired John Thomas, Prince Albert's favourite architect, to carry out extensive rebuilding.

St Peter's by the Waterfront

St Peter's Church, College Street
Ipswich IP1 1XF

St Peter's by the Waterfront is a heritage centre in one of the former mariner churches on the historic waterfront of Ipswich. The church is important in the history of Ipswich, and was once the chapel to the short lived Cardinal College set up by Cardinal Thomas Wolsey in the 16th century with major renovations taking place at this time and in the Victorian era. All that remains of the college is St Peter's and the 'Wolsey Gate", a water gate situated on the South perimeter wall of the church. The centre hosts historic artefacts from the Church's history and the locally commissioned Ipswich Charter hangings.
