Beyond Bury

Bury St Edmunds offers an ideal base to explore the surrounding area.

With stunning countryside, idyllic villages, quirky boutiques and cosy pubs, there are so many wonderful things to do in neighbouring villages and towns.

Discover the picturesque Suffolk wool towns of Lavenham, Long Melford and Clare, the home of horse racing at Newmarket and Ipswich, East Anglia’s waterfront town.

If you want a day out at the beach, Bury St Edmunds is just an hour away from the beautiful Suffolk Coast with charming seaside towns to explore.

If you are feeling energetic how about exploring on foot on one of the local walking routes which take in quaint villages, cosy pubs and stunning Suffolk scenery, or hop on two wheels and follow our many cycle routes.

With historic houses, galleries, exhibitions, festivals, and museums, exquisite food, unique boutiques, beautiful countryside, live music, dance, theatre and cinema, there is so much to explore in Bury St Edmunds and beyond.
