Al­though Bury St Ed­munds is a small town, there’s plenty to see and do here. The main ‘must see’ is St Ed­munds­bury Cathe­dral. This mag­nif­i­cent cathe­dral is sit­u­ated in the cen­tre of the town and if you’re feel­ing fit enough you can climb the 202 steps to the top of the Mil­len­nium Tower to take in a bird’s eye view of the town.

If you don’t have a head

for heights, take a re­lax­ing stroll around Abbey Gar­dens in­stead to learn more about Bury St Ed­munds and soak up its fas­ci­nat­ing his­tory.

Beer fans won’t want to miss a trip to the Greene King brew­ery where you’ll learn all about the his­tory of brew­ing, as well as he op­por­tu­nity to take a bot­tle home. If this puts you in the mood for a pint, take a ten-minute walk from there to Bri­tain’s small­est pub, The Nut­shell, mea­sur­ing a cosy 15ft by 7ft.
