Welcome to one of Britain’s best-loved market towns, in the heart of East Anglia. Whether you are a resident or a visitor, we hope this article will provide a little background information on the town and help guide you to some of its most popular attractions. Have a good time! The town grew up around the powerful Abbey of St Edmund in early medieval times. For five centuries it was visited by pilgrims from all over the world, coming to worship at the shrine of St Edmund – the martyred King of East Anglia. St Edmund was the patron saint of England until the dragon-slaying George took up the title in more militant times. We invite you to follow in the pilgrims’ footsteps and enjoy our Suffolk hospitality. Today the streets still follow the grid pattern devised by the abbots, making it easy to explore on foot. A stroll around the centre of Bury St Edmunds is an interesting experience. Fine facades reveal a wide range of unusual, independent shops offering traditional service and endless inspiration. In very few other towns can you buy a carpet-bag, a waistcoat and a didgeridoo all within the space of a few hundred yards! The twice-weekly provisions market in the Buttermarket and Cornhill is a social event as well as a shopper’s delight, and the dozens of cafes, restaurants and pubs offer the visitor an endless choice of refreshment. In the summer, the town becomes a riot of colour with flowers cascading from window boxes and hanging baskets. Small wonder that the town has won so many awards for floral excellence. During the summer months, Blue Badge Guides lead guided tours of the town each day at 2.30pm. Meet at the Tourist Information Centre on Angel Hill.
