Breath of fresh air

The jewel in Bury St Edmunds outdoor crown is the Abbey Gardens, a central haven with carpets of floral displays, spacious lawns, rose garden, hidden seating areas and craggy Abbey ruins, while a stone’s throw away is Ickworth House Park and Gardens with formal Italian gardens and 1,800 acres of Capability Brown designed parkland. The spacious Nowton Park has 200 acres of landscaped parkland with mature trees, a riotous spread of daffodils in spring, and at West Stow Anglo Saxon Village and Country Park there are long walks along the River Lark
