Gainsborough’s House is situated in the centre of Sudbury on Gainsborough Street, at the bottom of Market Hill. The cafe and shop are on Weavers Lane which are adjacent to the front of the House. The entrance can be found in our new gallery space which is also situated on Weavers Lane just past our Print Workshop.
Sudbury railway station is a connecting line from Marks Tey on the Liverpool St to Norwich line. The trains run every hour and the station is half a mile from Gainsborough’s House. A 10 minute walk along Station Road, Friars Street and into Gainsborough Street will bring you to the House.
There are three public car parks a short walk away – North Street has 199 spaces and, directed from the A131 one way system, has free Pay & Display parking for 3 hours. For all day parking, both the Kingfisher Leisure Centre and Sudbury Railway Station have plenty of Pay & Display parking spaces and are £3 for 24 hours or free for 2 hours. Market Hill, in the centre of the town, has one hour free parking. See Sudbury Council — Parking for details. For information about accessibility parking, please contact us prior to your arrival.
The drop-off point for coaches is on Gainsborough Street which is on the A131 one way system. As this is a residential area, we ask that you pull up by the large traffic sign on the left side, further along from the front of the House. The visitor entrance is a short walk back past the House and up on the left, along Weavers Lane. Coach parking is available at the Kingfisher Leisure Centre adjacent to the railway station. This is a long stay Pay & Display car park with a charge of £3 for the day or free for two hours.
