Highlights

  • You will play the part of a hard-working wool merchant. As a secret Catholic you want to stop at some of the town's lost places of worship, but you also need to sell wool, eat, drink, and rest along the way.

  • Highlights include: Christchurch Mansion, Ancient House, Cornhill, Blackfriars Monastery, and the historic Waterfront.

Storyline

The year is 1560 and Queen Elizabeth's reign has just begun. You’re a trader, arriving from Norwich with wool to sell. 

Starting at the Withypoll Mansion (now Christchurch Mansion), you need to make your way through Tudor Ipswich, all the way to the waterfront. 

Ipswich is a very important town, but like all of Tudor England, it’s full of danger, religious unease, and disease. You’ll need to solve the challenges at each location as quick as you can, and find your way safely to the quay.
