Removals to Bury St Edmunds: Places to Visit in Bury St Edmunds

Any visit to Bury St Edmunds would be incomplete without a trip to The Abbey and its gardens. The Abbey was named after Edmund, King of East Anglia, who died at the hands of the invading Danes in the year 869. The 14th Century Abbey Gate marks the entrance to the Cathedral and Abbey gardens. Within the gardens there are two plaques marking the spot where Cardinal Langton and 25 barons swore an oath which led to the signing of the Magna Carta.

The cloister ruins can still be seen today, these and sections of wall are all that remain after King Henry VIII began the dissolution of the monasteries. In 1539, the King's men stripped all the lead from the roofs and left the structures to deteriorate. The townsfolk helped themselves to what was left, which is why there are pieces of the Abbey and its various churches, dotted all over town.

Alternatively, you might like to take a walk on the heath. Hardwick Heath is a large area of open parkland roughly a mile south of the town. It is ideal for dog walkers and has many community facilities including picnic tables, a children's play area, a wildlife garden and football pitches. You can even go fishing there as long as you obtain a permit.

The Arc is Bury St Edmunds' principal shopping complex, featuring many well known high street names including: Animal, New Look, Clarks, Next, Paperchase, Crew Clothing, River Island, Debenhams, Rush Hair, Fat Face, Stormfront, H & M, Swarovski, Hobbs, The Perfume Shop, Jane Norman, Topshop / Topman, Monsoon and Waterstones amongst others, with an excellent choice of cafés and eateries.
