BURY ST EDMUNDS
A jewel in the crown of Suffolk, Bury St Edmunds holds 1000 years of history. A bustling market town, home to Suffolk’s only Cathedral that stands in the ruins of the Abbey of St Edmunds. An 11th Century Benedictine abbey that is now fondly know as the Abbey Gardens, popular with both families and history lovers.
There are stories of the past on every corner and charm that inspired the likes of Charles Dickens. The famous writer was a frequent visitor to the town, and set his novel ‘The Pickwick Papers’ in the town, with the recent film, David Copperfield, filmed there.
Bury St Edmunds is popular for its fabulous food and drink scene. The mix of independent and high street shops, as well as the busy markets, makes the town a great day out, with something for everyone.
