About Our Unique Shop
A Little History
Housed in a building dating back to the 15th century and believed to have been the office of Thomas Wolsey's secretary, Pickwicks Coffee and Tea House occupies a truly unique position in Ipswich.
The facade you can see today is in the Art Nouveau style and is a popular stopping off point for guided tours of Ipswich.
