Ipswich Rising Sun

Ipswich Rising Sun

closed 28th August 1960

63 Princes St

grid reference TM 160 443 (approximate location)

The Rising Sun stood on the junction of Princes Street and James Street (which no longer exists). It was subject to a compulsory purchase order and demolished in 1960 for the Civic Drive development scheme.

The pub is listed in Bird's Garden, St Nicholas' parish in the 1841 census, which may have been an earlier building. It has not been found in censuses from 1851 to 1881.

Another listing shows the pub at Friars Street (maybe an earlier building?)
