How to reach Sidegate Guest House

By car
Directions To Sidegate Guesthouse From The A14
Take the first exit off the A14 signposted to Ipswich (A1156). At the end of the slip road you will see an Asda in front of you. Take the first exit (left) off the roundabout, crossing straight over the next roundabout which is a hundred yards further ahead.
The road then splits up with a bus lane on the left hand side and, when it’s busy, there are usually queues of cars in the right hand lane. Follow the road, keep going straight, through a number of sets of traffic lights until you come to a double roundabout – approximately two miles down the Norwich Road.
Take the first exit (left) at the double roundabout onto Valley Road. Continue straight ahead through a number of sets of traffic lights and over two more roundabouts for approximately two miles until you pass the cemetery on your right and then you go over a small hump back railway bridge. As you cross over the railway bridge you will see a roundabout in the distance. As you approach the roundabout you will pass a Fire Station on your left, and after it – also on the left - the Royal George Pub.
This roundabout has turnings to both the left and the right signposted Sidegate Lane. You want the third exit (right).
Sidegate Guest House is a few hundred yards further on the right, opposite the primary school and just before the zebra crossing.
There is plenty of parking space at the front of the guesthouse with two entrances either side of the Sidegate Guesthouse sign.Directions To Sidegate Guesthouse From The A12
As you arrive on the outskirts of Ipswich on the A12 you will drive up to a large interchange roundabout with the A14 (large Toys R Us store on the other side of the roundabout). Go straight over, following the road signs into Ipswich.
After approx 2 miles, having gone through a number of traffic lights, you will arrive at a traffic light junction at the bottom of a long downhill section. Go straight over these lights, keeping in the left hand lane, passing a Sainsbury’s petrol station on your left, until you reach the second traffic light junction about 200 yards further on. Turn left here into Yarmouth Road.
At this turning point into Yarmouth Road you will see road sign directions for the Accident & Emergency hospital – in red. You should see these signs as you progress through the directions below and they are an easy way of making sure you’re on the right road UNTIL you come to the roundabout that has Sidegate Lane signposted both sides. (Don’t go any further as you don’t want to go as far as the hospital!)
So, having turned left into Yarmouth Road, continue straight on – and keep going straight - over all traffic lights and roundabouts – there are plenty of both including a double roundabout for about two miles until you pass the cemetery on your right and then you go over a small hump back railway bridge. As you cross over the railway bridge you will see a roundabout in the distance. As you approach the roundabout you will pass a Fire Station on your left, and after it – also on the left - the Royal George Pub.
This roundabout has turnings to both the left and the right signposted Sidegate Lane. You want the third exit (right).
Sidegate Guest House is a few hundred yards further on the right, opposite the primary school and just before the zebra crossing.
There is plenty of parking space at the front of the guesthouse with two entrances either side of the Sidegate Guesthouse sign.By train
Ipswich railway station is a five to ten minute taxi ride away (depending upon the traffic) and will cost around £6.00. All of the taxis on the taxi rank will know where we are!

By airplane
Stansted is our nearest airport - about an hour away. The Stansted Express runs every two hours.

By public transportation
Option 1 - The Route 66 bus leaves from the station every fifteen minutes and travels out of Ipswich via the Woodbridge Road, sometimes stopping at The Old Cattlemarket for a few minutes on the way (about a twenty minute journey, depending upon the traffic). The bus journey will cost you approximately £1.00 and if you ask the bus driver to drop you off at the nearest stop to Sidegate Lane you will see a set of traffic lights ahead of you when you get off the bus and if you walk up to them, Sidegate Lane is to your left. We are about a five minute walk up Sidegate Lane on the left, just after a zebra crossing, with a ‘pub’ sign clearly visible outside the guesthouse.

Option 2 – Take any bus from Ipswich Station going to the bus terminal at Tower Ramparts. Change to a Number 11 from Tower Ramparts up to Sidegate Lane via Woodbridge Road and the follow the directions from the bus stop above. When you get on the bus at the station, please ask for a transfer ticket (cost £1.80). You must leave Tower Ramparts within an hour for this ticket to be valid. Alternatively, you can buy two separate tickets but this is more expensive.


Option 3 - The Number 5 bus also leaves from the station every fifteen minutes and comes into Sidegate Lane. However, it takes at least 40 minutes as it does quite a tour of Ipswich.
