For a touch of art and culture, visit the recently refurbished Gainsborough’s House Museum, in Sudbury. Showcasing Thomas Gainsborough’s famous landscape paintings with a wonderful events calendar of Artists in Residence too.
A must is an amble around the famous landscapes of Constable Country in the nearby Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty in Dedham, East Bergholt and Flatford. Did you know that John Constable actually attended Lavenham’s school in his childhood?
While in Dedham why not visit The Munnings Art Museum? An impressive collection of works by Sir Alfred Munnings is on display within his house and former working studio. Suffolk is brimming with lots of interesting small independent galleries, far too many to mention, so be sure to do a little research yourself and plan an artistic tour of our landscape.
