A Visit to Bury St Edmunds

Moyses hall

The Combined Arts Committee invites you to come with us to visit the lovely old Suffolk Market Town of Bury St Edmunds and take a peep into its past. We plan to arrive in time for coffee (there are many lovely coffee shops) or you could visit the Refectory at the Cathedral. There are tours of the Cathedral at 11am while the more adventurous may wish to climb the Millennium Tower to see the wonderful view of the town. Adjoining the Cathedral is an Art Gallery and there are the beautiful Abbey Gardens to wander through. A walk into town will provide a host of interesting shops and a variety of cafés and restaurants where you could stop for a leisurely lunch.

In the afternoon we will meet at Moyse’s Hall Museum, which is steeped in history and has looked out over Bury St Edmunds Market Place for almost 900 years. Our guide will take us around the 12th Century building, first opened as a Museum in 1899. The building has served as a Workhouse, Police Station and now is home to one of the finest clock collections outside London.

There will be some time to finish our visit with a bit more shopping, or perhaps tea and cake, before we board the coach back to our various pick up points.

The closing date shows the last date on which places may be available, but please call the office if applying after the allocation date
