We were all bit disappointed as the trip was spoiled by the poor music
It was advertised as Dixieland Jazz
It needed livening up

Lovely short cruise to the orwell bridge and back. Around an hour long which was perfect with an almost 4 year old. Learned a little history and saw a few sights of ipswich that I hadn't noticed before.

We spent the afternoon on a river trip on the Lady Orwell, going from Ipswich docks Orwell quay to Pin Mill. which inc afternoon tea. the weather forecast was overcast possible rain however the rain held off and didn't dampen our experience. The captain provided a very informative commentary which we found very entertaining. I had requested a gluten free diet for myself and they put on gluten free bread/sandwiches and cakes. Fruit for all along with cakes, there was unlimited tea and coffee. we paused at intervals for opportunity's to see and photo wildlife. All in all it was a very enjoyable afternoon we highly recommend.
