You then need to walk the remaining 0.8 miles, which will take around 16 minutes. 

If you are arriving at the central station in Ipswich, you can jump in a taxi for 8 minutes. Or walk 13 minutes to Cliff Lane, taking the number 2 to Coplestone. Stay on the bus for 12 stops, approximately 11 minutes and get off at The Thrasher. It’s then a further 15 minutes walk to the venue.

Trimley train station is also close, and an 11-minute taxi drive. You’ll have to get 2 or 3 buses, and it will take you almost 50 minutes, so a taxi would be the better option.
