Christchurch Mansion

Christchurch Mansion (pictured above) is a substantial Tudor brick mansion house within Christchurch Park.. It is owned by the town and since 1895 has formed one of the two principal venues of the Ipswich Corporation Museums. The Grade I listed building mansion houses a collection of pottery and glass, a contemporary art gallery and a collection of paintings by artists including John Constable and Thomas Gainsborough.


Various kinds of phenomena have been reported. Apparitions at the property include a Victorian lady; and a woman in company of two children. Otherwise, books have been thrown and paintings turned to face the walls (afterlife art critic?) and an EVP allegedly recorded on a camcorder.
