Formed over 50 years ago, the Ipswich Transport Society caters for local transport enthusiasts through a varied programme of meetings and the production of a high quality Journal.

The Ipswich Transport Museum has the largest collection of transport items in Britain devoted to just one town. Everything was either made or used in and around Ipswich, the county town of Suffolk.

The Suffolk Local History Council was founded in 1953 to encourage and support the study of local history.

The Suffolk Record Office is responsible for looking after the county's archives and making them available to the public.

The RCTS is Britain's leading organisation for people interested in all aspects of railways past, present and future and is highly regarded by both professional railway people and enthusiasts, a position it has held since its formation in 1928.

A section of the railway at Brockford has been recreated with original station buildings which capture the atmosphere of this quirky line. In 2012 the MSLR was awarded the Heritage Railway Association’s Interpretation Award.

Aiming to preserve the history and heritage of this former home of aviation research and development.

The East Kent Railway is an exciting up and coming heritage railway deep in the Kent countryside. It was originally built to serve the Kent collieries and today is run entirely by volunteers.

Has a fascinating collection of vintage transport and transport models of all types.

Ipswich Maritime Trust

“To educate the people of Suffolk in all matters maritime”, and less formally, to fulfil a deeply felt ambition to assist in the rescue of the Wet Dock from its gradual decline from commercial prominence, seen above in the early 1960s - an objective now largely achieved!

Ipswich Society

The Ipswich Society was founded in 1960 and is a community of people who care about the appearance, character and well-being of the town, its past and its future.

We seek to preserve the best of the town's old buildings and to ensure that new building is of a high quality. The Ipswich Society is affiliated to the Civic Voice. From the start we have had close links with Ipswich Borough Council and our President is always the Worshipful the Mayor of Ipswich, who presides at our AGM and other important occasions.

Suffolk Family History Society - Ipswich Group
