woman reads gainsborough's sudbury map in street


Thomas Gainsborough was born in Sudbury and has influenced the town a great deal over the last few centuries. In Spring 2016 Gainsborough’s House created a new walking trail, Gainsborough’s Sudbury, to explore the town that inspired Gainsborough on foot, highlighting some of the fascinating heritage sites across the town, and some of the landscapes that are now immortalised in his paintings.

This map of Sudbury offers visitors the chance to explore the town at their own pace, and visit the sites that are of most interest to them, including Gainsborough’s House itself, Vanners Silk Weavers, Friars Street and the beautiful Water Meadows.

The map is free, and can be found at Gainsborough’s House. Plan a trip to explore Gainsborough’s Sudbury.
