Visit Bury St Edmunds

 

Bury St Edmunds is a picturesque, thriving market town. Our town boasts a great collection of venues for eating, drinking, shopping, and relaxing, making it a great place to live, work, visit and study.

 

Our market town, with its impressive produce market every Wednesday and Saturday, is nestled in the heart of Suffolk. It is known for the Abbey Gardens, which is a ruined abbey right in the town centre. Bury St Edmunds is a very popular destination for tourists and locals to the surrounding area. Visit the old side of the town and see the Cathedral in all its glory, the medieval quarter of the town and the Abbey Gardens itself. While in the newer side of the town you can browse the large assortment of shops, restaurants and entertainment centres.

History of Bury St Edmunds

Named after St Edmund, martyred in 870, Bury St Edmunds still proudly cherishes The Abbey, which is believed to house his remains, making it an important pilgrimage site. Bury St Edmunds has Suffolk’s only cathedral, and the only remaining Regency Theatre in England. Its American connection is with Martha’s Vineyard, whose discoverer named it after his Bury born daughter in 1602.
