Bury St Edmunds
Our Head Office is based in the historic Cathedral Town of Bury St Edmunds, close to Newmarket and Cambridge. Few areas in England can match the beauty and history of Bury St Edmunds and the surrounding towns and villages. At the very heart of historical Bury St Edmunds are the Abbey Ruins and the beautifully landscaped Abbey Gardens, with a worldwide reputation for superb floral displays, which regularly win regional and national awards. Adjacent to the Abbey Gardens is the superb St Edmundsbury Cathedral with its magnificent Millennium Tower; a 140 foot gothic-style tower which was recently completed in 2005 as part of their Millennium Project.
The Theatre Royal is a beautifully restored Georgian Theatre, which is the oldest purpose-built theatre in England. The Theatre re-opened in September 2007 following two years of extensive and meticulous refurbishment and features opera, dance and music as well as drama from the best touring companies.
This ancient market town still holds weekly markets on Wednesday and Saturday, when the town centre becomes a bustling arena for bargain hunters. Bury St. Edmunds is a shoppers' delight; its rare mix of family-run businesses and high street names, traffic-free areas with ample parking nearby and warm welcome, make shopping a real pleasure.
Nearby Newmarket is the historic Home of Horseracing and the greatest horseracing centre in the world. It offers a treasure trove of sights and sounds for the racing enthusiast. Newmarket also hosts the world famous Newmarket Nights, Britain's most successful race nights with a range of concerts featuring internationally renowned performers held throughout the summer season. The Jockey Club, National Stud and National Horseracing Museum are located in this thriving town which has excellent shopping facilities and parking and a wide range of superb accommodation.
