Bury St Edmunds has a diverse and somewhat idiosyncratic set of museums on offer. As

there are some of Queen Victoria's underwear at the Manor House, the vast array

For the town that provided the setting for the first television series of
"Lovejoy", it is not surprising to find a wide selection of art galleries and antique
dealers. Nearby, the quintessential Suffolk villages, Lavenham and Long Melford
abound with dealers, collectors, fairs and artists.
