This is a truly beautiful Cathedral, it is amazing that some parts of it are only a few years old, it looks as if it has been here for hundreds of years.

We were blown away with the beauty of this cathedral. It is in super condition and we were very lucky to hear the organ being played whilst there. Definitely worth a look around.

No matter what time of year you visit, the gardens are always beautiful and the Abbey has a certain dignity, history and wonderful feel. The cathedral itself is overwhelming with its peacefulness and beauty. A jewellery in Bury.

We paid a visit to St Edmundsbury Cathedral today, it was an on the spur visit but was so happy we did, as it has been some time since we visited, possibly some 15 years, when we last visited the tower was still being constructed with all the associated scaffolding and building work going on.

Our first visit to Bury St. Edmund's and the cathedral. Very lovely cathedral, so light and welcoming. Beautiful architecture and interesting that it was completed in the last ten years. Very impressed by the Cathedral, the gardens and the town in general.
