Bury St Edmunds Unitarian Meeting House

The Unitarian Meeting House in Bury St Edmunds was built in 1711 for its Presbyterian congregation in the English Baroque style. The building has been serving the local community for 300 years and was restored between 1975 and 1991 so that it could continue to do so for future generations. The Grade 1 listed building is now one of Bury St Edmunds’ most elegant venues and is available to hire for events.



There is limited metered on-street parking on Churchgate Street. The venue is only a short walk away from a number of the town’s main car parks including the arc car park, Parkway Multi Storey and Angel Hill Car Park.

We recommend using PARKOPEDIA to plan your parking in advance of your arrival.
