The Ipswich Railway Station is located near to the town centre and provides services to Cambridge, London Liverpool Street, Norwich, Peterborough, Lowestoft and Felixstowe. Currently there are no lifts at the station so people unable to use the stairs provided must ask for assistance to be escorted over the tracks to platforms 3 and 4. There are plans for lifts to be installed at the station in the near future. Cycle storage facilities are also available on all trains and stations but a limited cycle capacity may be in use. There can be problems however on the East Suffolk Line where cyclists can be refused entry on the grounds of safety.
The nearest airports are Stansted Airport in Essex or Norwich Airport, both approximately 47 miles away (76km).
