Why not visit the ruins of the medieval abbey which is just a short walk from the expanding arc shopping centre, the  popular Cornhill Walk  or the side streets in the Medieval Grid with an overall offering  of a mix of national brands and a range of independent boutiques, salons and spas. Visiting Bury St Edmunds will give you so much to do, and we have only given you a small taster... 

 

Visit Bury St Edmunds and you will have a great time.
