Christchurch Mansion

Christchurch Mansion in Ipswich houses The Wolsey Art Gallery, which was built in 1931 at the back of Christchurch Mansion as a memorial to Cardinal Wolsey, a native of Ipswich, on the 400th anniversary of his death. It is situated within the 500-year-old mansion and the Wolsey Art Gallery houses an exhibition of fine art from world-renowned Suffolk’s artists including John Constable and Thomas Gainsborough. In fact, the exhibition is the largest collection of both artists outside of London. The Mansion has two temporary exhibitions spaces, the Wolsey Art Gallery, a prestigious exhibition space hosting a lively programme of contemporary art shows and the Room Upstairs, a smaller intimate space ideal for one man shows. Whilst the majority of Christchurch Mansion is comprised of permanent displays, the Wolsey Art Gallery houses temporary exhibitions, so changes a few times a year.
