Sudbury Guided Tours 2024

From the inspirational to the creative, the scandalous to the gory, come join us to Step in the Sudbury Story!

Sudbury is an ancient market town in the heart of the picturesque Stour Valley surrounded by the landscape that inspired Sudbury's most famous son - the 18th Century internationally celebrated painter Thomas Gainsborough.


Your guide will unveil tales of Sudbury's fascinating history from Saxon settlements, artistic inspiration, peasants revolts to Sudbury Silk.


Book on one of our Sudbury guided tours and your expert guides will bring Sudbury's ancient streets to life!
