Join our expert blue badge guides as we weave our way around Sudbury’s historic streets which are seeped in silk and wool weaving heritage. Architectural clues and monuments from these trades stand proudly throughout the town; from characterful Weavers’ Cottages, to mighty Silk Mills, Sudbury’s Weavers’ Piece garden packed with dye plants to Sudbury’s three magnificent medieval churches and splendid timber framed buildings, the architectural legacy of the wealth of Sudbury’s wool trade. After the decline of the wool trade, Sudbury’s spinners and weavers turned their skills to the production of lighter fabrics. Today, Sudbury retains its status as The UK Capital of Silk!

Whether you are a visitor to the area or live locally and want to know more about this ancient Market Town, this tour offers a truly fascinating insight into Sudbury's unique history & heritage.
