Location and Access


The Museum is located in Ballygate, Beccles. It is a short walk from  St Michael's Church and its tower, which dominate the centre of town. With your back to the church, walk past the Swan House Inn on your left and then past Barclays Bank also on your left, taking you into Ballygate. 400 metres up Ballygate on the right hand side you will see the flint-fronted Grade 1 listed 16th Century building, Leman House, that accommodates the Museum.
Once at the Museum building, enter the garden through the pedestrian gate off the pavement and walk round to the back of the building, where you will see the porch and entrance.

Disabled Access

We have an entrance for the disabled and there is a lift to accommodate wheelchairs to circumvent the short flight of steps into the School Room.

Group Visits

We welcome group visits and it is possible to arrange group visits in or out of hours, subject staffing. Groups of up to twenty five usually spend about an hour in the Museum. Please contact the Museum in advance so we can make any necessary arrangements.
