Take a virtual tour of Bury St Edmunds & Beyond!

Let us take you on a virtual tour of some of Bury St Edmunds' iconic buildings, parks and halls...

St Edmundsbury Cathedral 

Lose yourself and enjoy a relaxing tour of St Edmundsbury Cathedral

This virtual tour of St Edmundsbury Cathedral travels through this historic building, from the Ancient Library, which was founded in 1595 to the Millennium Tower, completed in 2005.


Moyse's Hall Museum

Tour around the downstairs Social History section at Moyse's Hall Museum with beautiful Medieval artefacts and gory Crime and Punishment. 

Take a look upstairs at the new ‘East Anglian Artists and Their Contemporaries’ exhibition to see Print work by Sybil Andrews, Strutt, Bunbury and Rowlandson. Portraits by Beale, Tissot, Kauffman, Lely and Rose Mead. Enjoy your virtual tour of Moyse's Hall Museum!


Bury St Edmunds Guildhall

You might be surprised by what is on the other side of Bury St Edmunds Guildhall’s hefty front door. Step inside to discover a special place that has been at the heart of Bury St Edmunds for over 800 years and which is still enjoyed today. 

Explore the elegant Regency Banqueting Hall, enjoy views of the tranquil walled gardens, and don’t miss the top-secret WWII Operations Room. Be sure to look all around you on the virtual tour - there are stories to uncover at every turn.


Greene King Brewery

Bury St Edmunds has been the home of Greene King for more than 200 years!

They’ve been crafting fine British beers from the historic Westgate brewery since 1799, where their brewers use locally malted barley, water from 1,000 year old chalk wells and more quality ingredients in all of their famous brews. Now you can enjoy a walk through tour of their historic Westgate brewery in Bury St Edmunds from the comfort of your own home - you'll have to supply the beer though! 

Clare Castle & Country Park

Nestled in the town of Clare, take a virtual tour of the country park, which contains the remains of the 13th Century stone castle keep 

The nature trail passes the flowing river and ivy-covered outer bailey walls. Look out for nesting moorhens, coots, swans and mallards and relax as you listen to the sounds of birdsong and the wind gently blowing through the trees. Take a look at their video tour below!

National Horse Racing Museum Newmarket

You can't visit the National Horse Racing Museum in Newmarket in person just now, but you can listen to the fascinating story about how it came to be from the comfort of your own home! 

The museum comprises three complementary attractions; a new National Horseracing Museum, a National Art Gallery of British Sporting Art, and a chance to meet former racehorses and learn what they do after racing, in the flagship home of Retraining of Racehorses.


Kentwell Hall

The glorious gardens of Kentwell Hall are brought to life online with this tour from last June. One of England’s finest Tudor houses, the hall is surrounded by an extensive moat and nearly 30 acres of formal gardens and grounds. 

The organic gardens are a combination of ancient features, elements of the substantial alterations of Lady Guthrie, tenant during the 1930s, and the recent landscaping and planting by the current owners. Enjoy a tour of the formal walled garden, the wildlife meadows and the Pied Piper Topiary hedge.  


West Stow Anglo Saxon Village

One of England's great archaeological sites, explore West Stow Anglo Saxon Village online and discover the recreated Anglo-Saxon village and surrounding unspoilt countryside of West Stow Country Park. 

Take a trip back in time and learn how the Anglo-Saxons lived at West Stow and the exciting excavations that have taken place over the years to bring this fascinating place to life.

Fullers Mill Garden

Situated on the banks of the River Lark, Fullers Mill Garden, virtually visit the beautiful site featuring light dappled woodland with a fabulous collection of rare and unusual shrubs, perennials, lilies and marginal plants, collected over the course of 50 years by the creator of the garden Bernard Tickner MBE.


Red Lodge Karting
