St Edmundsbury Cathedral, Angel Hill, Bury St Edmunds IP33 1LS

For over 1,000 years, the site of Suffolk ’s Cathedral has been one of worship and pilgrimage.

The death of Edmund, King of the East Angles, at the hands of the Danes in 869 led to the building of an abbey to house his remains. St James’s Church was built within the precincts of the Abbey, becoming a Cathedral in 1914.

The Cathedral building has continued to develop over recent years with the addition of the Millennium Tower, completed in 2005, and its magnificent painted and gilded vault, added in 2010. 

Daily tours are currently offered Monday to Friday at 11am and are limited to 5 people only per tour. 

Tickets: £5 per person, payable on the day in the Cathedral Shop. For further information email visits@stedscathedral.org.
