Becket's Chapel in Wymondham is a Grade 1 listed building, recently restored by Historic Norfolk.

The chapel is one of Wymondham's most important heritage assets. The earliest parts of the building date from the 12th century and it has been an important part of life in the town for hundreds of years.
After many years of neglect the building was in a very poor state of repair and was on Historic England's risk register. 


In September 2022 Historic Norfolk purchased the chapel and carried out a programme of restoration and repair, thanks to grant funding from Historic England, the Architectural Heritage Fund, Norwich Freemens Charity, The Pilgrim Trust, The Headley Trust and the Geoffrey Watling Charity.

Becket's Chapel is available to hire for meetings, receptions and other activities.

From May to November it is home to Wymondham Arts.
