Suffolk 3

One of my favourite day trips was to Ipswich Tranport Museum.

Is run entirely by volunteers and is full of all sorts of vehicles - everything from a tram, to old buses and coaches, fire engines and even a relatively modern police car. The volunteers staffing the museum are fantastic - so enthusiastic and brimming with knowledge, is really infectious.

Would love to be an artist in residence at this type of place, drawing the exhibits and running workshops with visitors.

You can sit in loads of the exhibits - the children that were there loved that.

They also had a great collection of old enamel signs. Am a sucker for these - I love their colours and typography.

Definitely worth a visit!
