St Peter's church

Located by the historic waterfront of Ipswich in Suffolk, St Peter’s by the Waterfront is a former church which has been sensitively converted to a vibrant community arts and heritage centre.


Dating from the 1500s the church became notable under the reign of Henry VIII when the Lord Chancellor, Cardinal Wolsey, made it the chapel of his newly-established (but short-lived) college.

In more recent times St Peters became a mariners’ church before falling into disuse, but the historic building has now been brought back to life thanks to the incredible efforts of the Ipswich Hospital Band, using funds from by the Heritage Lottery and other sources.
