Gainsborough’s House | Sudbury

Gainsborough's House 46 Gainsborough Street Sudbury Suffolk CO10 2EU

01787 372 958

Gainsborough’s House in Sudbury is a museum of national importance with a permanent exhibition of the work of one of England’s greatest painters, Thomas Gainsborough (1727 – 1788). Undergoing a massive and exciting redevelopment during 2020/2021, a brand new landmark building is creating new galleries, viewing platforms and exhibition space.

The house where he was born and lived can be restored and refurbished whilst a new shop and cafe will overlook the historic garden and its ancient mulberry tree, planted during the reign of King James I to encourage  establishment of the silk industry. (A silk industry was indeed established in Sudbury and still thrives today).
