Welcome to Westhorpe
Westhorpe is a linear countryside village and civil parish in the Suffolk countryside, thirteen miles from Bury St. Edmunds, eight miles from Stowmarket and a mile from the villages of Wyverstone and Finningham.
Westhorpe Hall was a former seat of the Dukes of Suffolk and the place of death of Mary Tudor, Queen of France, with its close neighbour East Thorpe manor, being the seat of a previous duke, William de la Pole, 1st Duke of Suffolk. Hence the village takes its rightful place in England's history.
