Royston & District Museum & Art Gallery

Royston is a small market town which grew up at the point where two ancient roads cross—the Icknield Way and Ermine Street. Its history is reflected in the Royston Tapestry at the Museum, a project initiated in 1992 by previous curator Jane Vincent and depicting scenes from the town’s past. In addition to the current display there is an extensive photographic, newspaper, and document archive (made available for research purposes by appointment), costumes/textiles, archaeology and an art collection. The Museum also displays a magnificent collection of ceramics and glass from the later part of the nineteenth century through to the present day.
