Bury St Edmunds offers relaxing lifestyle

Bury St Edmunds offers relaxing lifestyle

When it comes to finding a new place to settle and live, it can often be a conflict between having a lot to do and see and giving yourself a relaxing settlement where you are not stressed out by the sort of hustle and bustle seen in the big cities.

This way of life can be discovered when you head out in Suffolk and look at property for sale in Bury St Edmunds. The market town is perfect for those who want to enjoy this style of living while also becoming part of a small community and feeling really at home.

One of the highlights of living in the town is the weekly street market. One of the oldest and most successful in the country, it dates back to times before William the Conqueror, and now has more than 80 stalls at each event.

This occurrence sees locals given the chance to buy goods and wares sourced and produced in surrounding areas around the town, while they are also able to get out and meet their neighbours and feel like a bigger part of the community.

For those who bring family to the town, the educational options are plentiful, with parents able to visit and check out a range of schools, which fall under a three-tier system that is quite unique to Suffolk. Some of the top-performing schools include the likes of King Edward VI, St Benedict's and County Upper School.

One of the other real positives of living in this area include the likes of the arts, where people can find some culture in a range of different events.

The Theatre Royal is a popular place for guests to see some of the top touring and resident performances or simply to enjoy a tour of the historically important structure, which is the last remaining Regency Theatre in the country.

Moyse's Hall Museum is also a great place to visit with a range of social and local history on display, while Smith's Row is a fantastic contemporary Art Gallery situated in the old Market Cross.ADNFCR-1222-ID-801827668-ADNFCR
