East of Ipswich was a BBC television drama from 1987 written by Michael Palin, based on his own memories of dreary holidays in English coastal towns in the 1950s.

The plot revolves around Richard, a seventeen year-old only son, and his rebellious holiday romances in Southwold, Suffolk, leading to his sexual initiation by a promiscuous Dutch girl named Anna.

It starred Edward Rawle-Hicks as Richard, Joan Sanderson as the overbearing landlady of a guest house, John Nettleton as Richard's father, Pippa Hinchley as Anna, and Janine Duvitski.
