About this Business

Built in 1819 the Theatre Royal Bury St Edmunds is the last surviving example of a working Regency playhouse in the country. As a National Trust property there are a variety of ways to explore behind-the-scenes and find out more about its rich and vibrant history.

Theatre Royal was designed by renowned architect William Wilkins – also famous for designing the National Gallery and University College London. With many of its original features still intact it is the last remaining Regency playhouse in the country, and one of the most beautiful, intimate and historic theatres in the world.
