Got an Our Bury St Edmunds Gift Card for Christmas? Now’s the time to make the most of it in the sales.  There are more than 70 businesses currently accepting it so the hardest thing about spending it is likely to be where to choose to shop first.

You could start at arc shopping centre where you’ll find plenty of the big high street names – soon to be joined in the spring by Primark.  It’s then just a short walk to Cornhill and Buttermarket where you’ll find other town centre favourites and of course the bustling market on Wednesdays and Saturdays.

There’s a wealth of independent shops in Bury St Edmunds too and where better to start than in St Johns Street?  From Beautiful Beers to Vinyl Hunter there’s so much to explore.  A short walk across town and you’re in Abbeygate Street. Here you’ll find gifts, jewellery, lighting and fashion. Turn into Hatter Street where the eclectic range of shops includes those selling flowers, antiques and even cheese.  Then wend your way to Angel Hill.  As well as the magnificent hotel from which it takes its name you’ll find restaurants, cafes, shops including Olivia Benn boutique and of course the Abbey Gardens and the Cathedral.

In between all that shopping, there are plenty of fabulous cafes, coffee houses and other places to eat and drink around town when you want to take a break.  If you always choose plant-based treats – or perhaps you’re just giving Veganuary a try then you’ll find a trail featuring many of the eateries in town that offer plant-based options on the LoyalFree app.  Just select Bury St Edmunds, choose tours and trails and click on the vegan eateries one.

In the trail you’ll find the newly refurbished Pizza Express where the pizzas include Sloppy Vegan as well as plant based versions of favourites such as Padana and Giardiniera.  There are a number of the other high street names on the trail too or why not pay a visit to some of the independents that give Bury town centre its amazing foodie vibe.

At Gastrono-Me whether it’s breakfast, lunch or dinner there are options such as dark chocolate porridge or beer-battered avo tacos to make you want to come back long after Veganuary is over.  Edmundo Lounge has an extensive choice for eating in or take away – look out for the vegan tapas menu.  And staying with the Mediterranean flavours do try the mezze at Francela too.

Mexican restaurant Amigos has a vegan menu including jackfruit wings and vegan chilli tacos among the specialities.  Health and wellbeing café Primal 8 in Risbygate Street always has plenty of healthy snacks and drinks.   Keep an eye on Bay Tree Café’s Insta for mouth-watering photos of their delicious Veganuary dishes.  Enjoy a hummus, avocado and pink pesto bagel at Lotties on Angel Hill or be really decadent with the vegan Biscoff waffle.

For three-course fine dining look no further than Maison Bleue but if it’s a coffee break you’re after then head to Midgar and;” enjoy a vegan jam oat slice with your hot drink of choice. And why not treat yourself to a selection of vegan chocolates from Marimba before you head home?
