St Peter's by the Waterfront is a heritage centre in one of the former mariner churches on the historic waterfront of Ipswich.

The Church is important in the history of Ipswich, and was once the chapel to the short lived Cardinal College set up by Cardinal Thomas Wolsey in the 16th century with major renovations taking place at this time and in the Victorian era.

All that remains of the college is St Peter's and the "Wolsey Gate", a water gate situated on the South perimeter wall of the church.

Opened in May 2008 the centre hosts historic artefacts from the Church's history and the locally commissioned Ipswich Charter hangings.

The centre is also a home for the arts, including the Ipswich Hospital Band who were behind the renovation of the building turning it into a heritage centre and concert venue.
