Event ListingWoodbridge Rotary Club Heritage Walks: Historic Inns Walk

Visit the 13th oldest pub in England, where ale has been sold since the 12 Century. Woodbridge Rotary Club will lead this walk to visit some of the most historic inns Woodbridge has to offer.

Meet at 10:00 outside Woodbridge Railway Station, under the trees slightly to the right as you exit from the main building for registration for track and trace. Tours in groups of five with a guide from approximately 10:30.

Venues visited include:

  • The Anchor: Featuring a Tudor wing and other parts dating back to the 17th century, The Anchor is the last survivor of the 3 inns that served the shipbuilding industry of Woodbridge.
  • Ye Olde Bell and Steelyard: Believed to be the 13th oldest pub in England, Ye Olde Bell and Steelyard’s famous short arm on its exterior was used for weighing items that entered the steelyard.
  • The Bull: Mentioned in the records of 1734, The Bull was a regular visiting place of Edward Fitzgerald.


Not all inns in Woodbridge have easy wheelchair access, and we may have to limit the number entering an inn at one time.
