Bury St Edmunds - Suffolk’s Market Town

Bury St Edmunds - Suffolk’s Market Town

The pretty town of Bury St Edmunds is the cultural and economic heart of West Sussex.  

With a population of just under 41,000 people, Bury St Edmunds is just the right size for those looking to get away from larger towns and cities but still looking for a bit of hustle and bustle.

The town’s street market dates back to before William the Conqueror, and today has more than 80 stalls selling a huge rage of wares, from fresh fish through to vacuum cleaner spares. The market is in town every Wednesday and Saturday, throughout the year.

St Edmundsbury Cathedral is constantly evolving, with a significant amount of building work being undertaken between the 1960s and 1980s to transform the former parish church into a cathedral. Between 2000 and 2005, a new Gothic revival cathedral tower was built as part of a Millennium project.

With a real range of property for sale in Bury St Edmunds, the town has a huge amount to offer families moving into the area. There is a great community feel and offers an attractive alternative to bigger and less friendly locations.

Educational options are excellent, with a range of schools on offer. The area is home to a number of top-performing institutions, including as King Edward VI, St Benedict's and County Upper School. Many operate under Suffolk’s unique three-tier system.  

Arts lovers will not be disappointed by Bury St Edmunds' Theatre Royal. It is the last remaining Regency-style theatre in the whole of the UK, and it is the only theatre owned by the National Trust.ADNFCR-1222-ID-801824471-ADNFCR
