Welcome to the Cater Museum

We are open Tuesdays and Wednesdays, 1-5 pm. Visits outside of these opening times can be booked in advance.

We are a small museum in the heart of Billericay High Street dedicated to the history of the area and its community. Pay us a visit and learn something new about the town! There is no entry fee but we do welcome donations and we would encourage you to support us by joining The Friends of the Cater Museum.

74 High Street was purchased by Mrs. Alice Cater in memory of her husband, William, and to provide Billericay with a museum. The Cater Museum opened officially in 1960 and featured collections from the Caters, Harry Richman (our first curator), Anthony Nicholl and A. Basil Brooks.

We’re currently working on adding the museum’s collections to the website.
