Ed Sheeran fans can follow his roads to glory on a new walking tour of the streets where his career began in Ipswich.

The singer concluded his record-breaking world tour in August across four nights at Chantry Park in the town. 

The walking tour includes the venues where he first played, including The Swan, the Steamboat Tavern, and the Halberd Inn, which was known as McGinty's when Sheeran played there as a 17-year-old. The music-themed stroll also takes in Ipswich Town's football stadium, equally cherished by the singer.

The walk, entitled Ed Sheeran: Made in Suffolk, has been organised by Ipswich Borough Council and also includes stops at the University of Suffolk and Town Hall, where Sheeran was awarded an honorary doctorate.

It concludes at Christchurch Mansion, which hosts an exhibition of Sheeran's life, curated by his father. Thousands of people from all around the globe have already been to this exhibition.

Sheeran actually grew up in the market town of Framlingham, which is close to Ipswich. 

Ipswich Museum, home of the Ed Sheer-ham pig sculpture he bought for charity in 2016, and Christchurch Park, where he has played the annual Ipswich Music Day free festival, also feature on the tour.
