In the heart of Bury St Edmunds, the Abbey Gardens are hugely popular with visitors and locals.

A space to play or stroll, unusual trees and floral displays to admire, as well as an aviary, a play area for small children and the chance to enjoy refreshments sitting out in the sun.

The Gardens play venue for a wide variety of public and civic events: concerts, plays and parades; fun days, festivals, fairs and fireworks.

And there is remarkable architecture; the ruins of the C11th Benedictine Abbey lie within the Gardens, the neighbouring Cathedral dominates the view and the main entrance is through the massive C14th Abbey Gate.

Free and open to the public year round.
