How to find The Allen Gardiner
DIRECTIONS FROM NOVOTEL / BRIDGE STREET (STOKE BRIDGE)
Novotel is at the junction of Grey Friars Road, Star Lane and College Street. Bridge Street (Stoke Bridge) is the road bridge over the River Orwell/Gipping at the junction of Burrell Road (from the Station), Dock Street and Vernon Road (A137 from Manningtree).
Approaching Bridge Street (Stoke Bridge) from the Novotel roundabout on Bridge Street, take the first exit at the next roundabout almost immediately.
Then again immediately, turn left before the pedestrian traffic lights and the bridge itself.
The end of the Wet Dock is immediately ahead of you. There is a large building at the end of the road Jerwood Dance House. How to find The Allen Gardiner
The road directly ahead is pedestrian only, so you must bear right. This is the East Cut.
There is usually a blue gate half across the road ahead of you. “Welcome to Ipswich Haven Marina” pass this gate and enter ABP ports.
Dead ahead are gates with wire mesh fencing across the road. These are usually locked and lead to a private part of the Port. Bear left before these gates. (There is only one way you can go once you leave the roundabout).
On your left is a large gravel car park, park in this car park. This is before the marina office.
Please note that you will need an Ipswich Haven Marina car parking permit. A Member of crew will meet you in the car park with a parking permit, if required, that must be displayed in your car. Parking is free and under surveillance.
