Leisure and Sports

Bury St Edmunds is an ideal base from which to explore this part of Suffolk on foot and by bike with historic places to visit, beautiful parks and gardens and stunning countryside.

Cyclists will enjoy the paths and trails through the town and surrounding area, the scenic parkland around Ickworth House and the 3km off road cycle route that meanders deep into the woods of Nowton Park. Check out our cycling blog for ideas.

Bury St Edmunds and surrounding villages are also ideal destinations for walkers, who will fully appreciate the historic splendour of Georgian squares, medieval architecture and rolling fields on foot.  

There are also daily guided walking tours of Bury St Edmunds town centre which leave from the St Edmundsbury Cathedral visitor information point.

Golfers will appreciate the excellent golf clubs in and around Bury St Edmunds and you can also find bowling, swimming, tennis, roller-skating and ten-pin bowling in the town.
