Ipswich is the county town of Suffolk, England, located on the estuary of the River Orwell, about 60 miles (97 km) north east of London. The town has been continuously occupied since the Saxon period, and its port has been one of England's most important for the whole of its history.
Ipswich is a non-metropolitan district. The urban development of Ipswich overspills the borough boundaries significantly, with 75% of the town's population living within the borough at the time of the 2011 Census, when it was the fourth-largest urban area in the United Kingdom's East of England region, and the 42nd largest urban area in England and Wales.
Ipswich Town Hall England was constructed in 1878 at a cost of £16,000 and opened by Mr John Patterson Cobbold, the mayor of Ipswich at the time. The Town Hall and the adjoining Corn Exchange was created in a typical, grand Victorian architecture style. It was designed by the Lincoln firm of architects Bellamy and Hardy. The Town Hall and Corn Exchange now consist of 2 art galleries as well as a theatre. The venue has also hosted the political debate program Question Time.
