Take a virtual tour of Bury St Edmunds & Beyond!

We know you can't visit right now, so let us take you on a virtual tour of some of Bury St Edmunds' iconic buildings, parks and halls...

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.

Palace House Newmarket

You can't visit the National Heritage Centre at Palace House 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.


St Edmundsbury Cathedral

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

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.


Bury St Edmunds Guildhall

Dating back to 1279, Bury St Edmunds Guildhall is the oldest continuously-used civic building in Britain! You enjoy a tour of the World War Two Royal Observer Corps Control Centre – the only surviving room of its kind in the country, interactive displays and collections, the Court Room, the Banqueting Hall, the Tudor Kitchen, courtyards and fabulous open gardens all from the comfort of your own home!
