A Weekend Break in Bury St Edmunds this Christmas

Posted on Tuesday, 15th November, 2016

Whether you’re visiting friends and family, spending the weekend doing some Christmas shopping, enjoying the fun and festivities of the Christmas Fayre, or just wanting to get away to relax and have someone else do all the hard work, Bury St Edmunds has a great selection of fantastic hotels for a weekend break this Christmas. Here’s a few suggestions:


Situated in the centre of town, opposite the St. Edmundsbury Cathedral and its award-winning Abbey Gardens, the Angel Hotel is the perfect spot if you want to be in the thick of the action this Christmas in Bury St Edmunds.

This four-star hotel is set within a fantastic Georgian building and retains all of this historical charm, however, adds its own personality in the form of interesting artwork and interior design.

When it comes to the rooms at the Angel Hotel, there truly is something for everyone, with three categories to choose from. The Impressions rooms are modern in design with contemporary furnishings, comfy fabrics and touches of urban design. The Originals are spacious and relaxed, each with its own unique style. And the Classics offer a homely feel using traditional design with modern touches in all the right places.

The 2 AA Rosette Eaterie at the Angel Hotel serves modern British cuisine with a twist, using fresh, locally-sourced produce. You can also take a break from shopping and refuel with afternoon tea, or enjoy a drink in the fantastic Wingspan Bar.

If you’re looking for a slightly quieter location that is still within a few minutes’ walk of the town centre, check out Bury St Edmunds’ newest hotel, The Northgate.

Due to open on 24th November, this latest offering from the award-winning Chestnut Group aims to redefine the boutique experience.

All bedrooms have been individually designed to an opulent French theme, retaining the period features of this historic building, while adding an element of contemporary luxury. Over-sized free-standing bath tubs, marble tiles and fine linen perfectly complement the original fireplaces and sash windows.

The restaurant at the Northgate offers a fantastic range of menus from renowned Head Chef, Dan Grigg. You might fancy a hearty breakfast or a super smoothie, a mid-morning snack or a casual lunch, or why not try out the Chef’s table? This fantastic experience allows you to enjoy a fabulous tasting menu right in the heart of the kitchen where you can witness the kitchen team at work!
