There are 11[1] Grade I listed buildings in Ipswich, a non-metropolitan district and the county town of Suffolk, England.

In the United Kingdom, the term listed building refers to a building or other structure officially designated as being of "exceptional architectural or historic special interest"; Grade I structures are those considered to be "buildings of "exceptional interest, sometimes considered to be internationally important. Just 2.5% of listed buildings are Grade I." The total number of listed buildings in England is 372,905.[2] In England, the authority for listing under the Planning (Listed Buildings and Conservation Areas) Act 1990[3] rests with English Heritage, a non-departmental public body sponsored by the Department for Culture, Media and Sport.

Ipswich is an unparished area, like many urbanized districts, with only 85% of the town population actually living in the area of the borough.
