Art & Culture
With its strong medieval links, Bury St Edmunds has a wealth of places to explore. Dating from 1180, Moyse’s Hall Museum has been a gaol, police station and now houses local and social history. As the only surviving Regency theatre left in Britain, built in 1819 the Theatre Royal is unique, with a lively arts programme plus guided tours four times weekly. Local artists feature at the Cathedral’s Edmund Gallery, while the art gallery Smiths Row is housed in a Robert Adam designed building, once the town’s Market Cross Theatre.
