Things to do in Bury St Edmunds 

Bury St Edmunds’ most famous landmark has to be the awe-inspiring St Edmundsbury Cathedral, where the original ruins of St Edmunds’ Abbey stand in the Abbey Gardens. St Edmund was the original patron Saint of England and once ruled over East Anglia in the sixth century. Due to Edmund’s religious significance, the Abbey was once a famous Christian pilgrimage site and today you can still visit the cathedral and gardens to learn more about it.

To learn more about the rich history of Bury St Edmunds and Suffolk, head to Moyses’ Hall, a local museum beloved by all. The twelfth-century building has been a local history museum for many years now and the historic setting is very much an integral part of bringing the local artefacts and exhibitions to life. If the story of St Edmund has caught your attention during your stay, then there is plenty at Moyses’ Hall related to the Viking conquest that led to his execution and more about his life in the town. The museum is also very child-friendly.

Those who love a spot of retail therapy whilst on their break will love what Bury has to offer. As a historic market town, Bury St Edmunds has commerce at its heart and today this is reflected in the wonderful array of shops, both big names and smalls, that line Bury’s streets. The bi-weekly market is a real joy, while the rest of the shops sell just about everything, from independent clothing boutiques, to gift shops, galleries and homeware sellers. One shop in particular, Butchers, has been here for over a hundred years, although surprisingly it sells clothes not meat! 

You’ll also find numerous bars, restaurants, pubs and cafes in the town – so many that it would be almost impossible to make a full list of recommendations. That said, our local team do love visiting Sakura for Japanese food, Gastrono-me for burgers and La Maison Bleue for fancy French fine dining.

Even though there’s so much going on in Bury itself, the town is also within a commutable distance of coastal spots such as Aldeburgh and Southwold, as well as Ipswich, Ely, Cambridge and Norwich. With so much to do in the town and so many other amazing places to visit, a self-catering holiday in Bury St Edmunds is the best way to see Suffolk.
