Where to find Suffolk’s best art Galleries

Whether you’ve got a view to buy some art, or simply want to view some art, Suffolk has an impressive selection of art galleries that make for a fantastic day out when staying at one of our Barns or Barges for rent. To give you the lowdown on some of the best and what you can expect when paying them a visit, we’ve put together a short guide that will serve you well during your holiday with us.

Woodbridge Art Club:

Whilst its name may not immediately reveal just how much goes on at its premises, the Woodbridge Art Club brings together a gallery, regular exhibitions, pottery sales and so much more. Coming highly recommended by both ourselves and the discerning reviewers over at TripAdvisor, this is the place to go if you’re in the market for some unique decorations or something special to frame in your home.

Ipswich Art School and Gallery:

As you may expect, the Ipswich Art School and Gallery showcases some of the best work from up and coming artists. From contemporary pieces to offerings inspired by more traditional styles, this gallery is the perfect place to discover something entirely fresh and new. There’s also few boasting points – not to mention investment potential – in being amongst the first to discover Britain’s next big talent!

Imagine Gallery:

Regularly presenting some of the finest exhibitions to grace the walls of Suffolk’s galleries, the Imagine Gallery in Sudbury not only offers visitors the opportunity to set eyes on stunning works, it also features a store full of photography prints, glassworks, ceramics, and even furniture! If you’re planning on bringing something truly unique home with you from your holiday in Suffolk, you won’t go wrong by paying this gallery a visit.

Town Hall Gallery:

Offering visitors the opportunity to set eyes on some historic works of art, the Town Hall Gallery in Ipswich has everything you could possibly want from a venue with a decidedly artistic flavour. Though the more prestigious works are only available to view by appointment, the museum and craft shop ensure that any impromptu visit is well worth the time.

Buckenham Galleries:

Inside this unassuming building in Southwold you’ll discover Buckenham Galleries, a venue that brings together the best work of local artists. Another fantastic spot for homeowners on the lookout for striking new additions, there’s a variety of bespoke furnishings on sale that perfectly complement the selection of painting and photography which adorn its walls.

To set about your gallery adventure in Suffolk this year, be sure to take a look at the current availability of our Barns and Barges for rent. Providing you with remarkable accommodation, we’re confident that you’ll find everything you need to unwind and relax after a day of viewing and shopping.
