Your Visit

The Jerwood DanceHouse is situated on the beautiful Ipswich Waterfront with great transport links and plenty to see and do in the area.



Ipswich Train Station is a 12-minute walk from the DanceHouse and provides great links to the rest of the country with London just over an hour away.

If you are travelling by bus, both the Cattle Market Bus Station and Tower Ramparts Station are within 15 minutes’ walk and buses run frequently, connecting the town centre with the rest of Suffolk.


Ipswich is conveniently located just off the A14 and the A12, making it really easy to get here from London, Chelmsford and Colchester (A12 northbound), Southwold, Aldeburgh and Woodbridge (A12 southbound) and Felixstowe (A14 westbound).

Once you arrive, there are plenty of car parks around town but the closest ones to us are:

The Jerwood DanceHouse is a state-of-the-art facility designed especially for dance. We are lucky to have four dance studios for classes and workshops, a 200-seat theatre showcasing world class performances, and a green room and dressing rooms for visiting artists. Plus, there are plenty of spaces to sit and catch up with friends over a bite to eat from our café.

It’s our vision for the entire community to have ownership of the building, and to feel that the Jerwood DanceHouse is theirs.
