Look at what was here 100s of years ago, the little museum has it all. Dunwich once a flourishing sea port before the river silted up.

If you don't know the history of Dunwich then this is a must during your visit. Only takes about an hour but worth it, and free entry (but please donate!).

Very interesting, although the lady serving/delivering information was rather stuffy and rude. Small and quaint exhibition and exhibits detailing village history. Well worth a visit to gain full facts and information about the surrounding area.

We enjoyed our visit to this small museum that provides plenty of information about Dunwich past and present. If nothing else, the story of the lost medieval port of Dunwich should act as a warning to today's politicians and civic planners of the importance of...More
