Historic Market Town

Situated close to the town of Newmarket, the city of Cambridge and close to Ipswich, Bury St Edmunds is often bypassed by visitors in lieu of its better known neighbours.

We don't mind that too much as we get to enjoy all the lovely buildings, museums and parks without the crowds that swamp Cambridge.

The Towns History

Bury St Edmunds has links to Charles Dickens, the drawing up of the Magna Carter and St Edmund. (Hence the towns name). More info on all of these and more to follow shortly!

Home of Greene King

The Greene King brewery has been located within the town of Bury St Edmunds for over 200 years. They still brew their famous beer on site and now have a Brewery Museum which you can visit, and a brewery tour (see tips).

Greene King also own many of the pubs in the town. Bury St Edmunds has a large number of pubs including the smallest pub in Britain, The Nutshell.
