Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk

With the dissolution of the Abbey of St Edmund in 1539, its story does not end. 

In the centuries that followed, this solid focal point of Bury St Edmunds has continuously played host to historical events of local and national importance, as well as adding richly to the social life of the town. This walk brings to life the journey of regeneration through stories which span the nearly 500 years since the last Benedictine monk departed.

Find out what happened after Bury St Edmunds' Abbey was closed down on a 90-minute walking tour with the Bury St Edmunds Tour Guides!

Join the Tour Guides for a fun and informative trip back in time!

Running on select dates from 4 July to 26 September Book at the website above! Tickets £7, U16s FREE.

Just one of the special tours available during the Year of Celebrations to mark 1,000 years since the founding of the Abbey of St Edmund!
