Start your day with coffee and a treat at Special Branch Collective in Marburg’s Queen Street. Browse the plants and gifts available at the shop before you sit outside to sip coffee and taste baked goodies. Walk next door to see the art and collectables available at The Black Museum and up to the corner to check out the antiques and rustic wares on offer at ScotlandYard Antiques . Wander around the corner for lunch at The Soul Nook Collective . Book in for a styled picnic setting in one of their luxurious bell tents or under the tree. Enjoy lunch while relaxing in your private space, then pop into the shop inside the Old Church. They stock artisan wares, fashion and art. If you're visiting on a day when they’re running one of their art or craft classes or weekly yoga or tarot sessions, you can book in for these too. After lunch and a browse, you can walk across to the Marburg Historic Society , quirky community library or the park to explore some of the history of the town. Next, stop for a drink at one of the oldest pubs in the Ipswich region, the Marburg Hotel across from the park. There are a few ghost tales about this traditional pub, and you can learn a few while having a beer at the bar.
