Museums

With a rich recorded history spanning back millennia, the East of England enjoys no shortage of historical attractions and museums. Below are just a few…

Norwich Castle was built as a royal palace by the Normans some 900 years ago and served as the city’s prison for over 600 years. The royal fortification now hosts the city’s museum and art gallery and is found within half a mile of the the imposing Norwich Cathedral, which remains one of the largest places of worship in the UK.

Elsewhere, housed in a former herring curing works, is Great Yarmouth’s Time & Tide Museum, which reveals the seaside town’s past from Ice Age origins to present day.

Lying on the Suffolk Heritage Coast is Dunwich, once medieval England’s 10th largest city and one of the nation’s most important ports. Now, after a thousand years of coastal erosion, all that remains is a single street where you’ll find the excellent Dunwich Museum.

Heading back inland, Ipswich Museum and adjacent art gallery are respectively known for their collections of Egyptian, Roman and Anglo-Saxon artefacts, and regularly-refreshed exhibitions of fine art and popular culture.
