The market town of Bury St Edmunds lies in the picturesque Suffolk countryside and traces its origins back to Saxon times. This history is embodied by the ruins of the ancient Bury St Edmunds Abbey in the centre of town, which is surrounded by the beautiful parkland of Abbey Gardens.
The Abbey was one of the casualties of Henry VIII's Dissolution of Monasteries in the sixteenth century, but there is still much to see of the remaining structure which makes it a popular tourist attraction to this day.
Another one of the town's sights of note is the stunning Theatre Royal, which was designed by the same man who was responsible for the National Gallery in London and is now the only theatre in the country dating back to the Regency period of British history.
