When it all started
This beautiful Tudor mansion is the jewel in the crown of Ipswich’s historic pas boasting over 500 years of history.
Christchurch Mansion is built on the site of the Holy Trinity Priory, founded in the 12th century, which was suppressed by King Henry VIII.
A property syndicate bought the site in 1894 and sold some of the land for development. Felix Cobbold, a member of the syndicate, presented Christchurch Mansion to the town as a gift and the Ipswich Corporation purchased the remainder of the park.
