Explore the historic village of Lavenham

Lavenham village has a wonderful yet chequered history with many stories

St Peter & St Paul Church
 
The spectacular large church was built at the height of Lavenham's prosperity by Thomas Spring III in the late 15th century.  
 

The Old Grammar School

The Old Grammar School, open from 1647-1887, is a Grade I listed building whose many pupils have included famous painter John Constable.

De Vere House

The last house in Lavenham to be owned by the Earls of Oxford, also known as the De Vere Hunting Lodge, was one of three properties within the centre of Lavenham, attached to Lavenham Hall.
 

Little Hall

Little Hall, built in the 1390s, was once home to the Causton family. Since then the house has changed a lot from being divided up to house six different families in the 1700s to being restored and used as a museum today.
 

Art and galleries

Lavenham is host to an array of galleries; visitors can find unique examples of local and international arts and crafts. Take a look at the Crooked House Gallery, a building full of 'wonky' charm.
