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.
