Trains to Bury St Edmunds

Bury St Edmunds' station dates back to 1847 and was originally admired for its two red-brick towers, which were removed in 1893. Today, the building is equally as recognisable with its solo tower pinpricking the blue skies above this historic market town. With an abundance of medieval architecture and the breathtaking Cathedral and Abbey gardens, Bury St Edmunds is one of the most visually arresting places to visit in Great Britain - and its role in King John's acceptance of the Magna Carter make it one of the most important settlements in the Western world. The station is a short walk from the town centre where visitors will find superb shopping on St John's Street, a delightful cafe culture along Hatter Street and all the latest Hollywood hits at the Abbeygate Picturehouse Cinema. The Nutshell bar is also a must for tourists. At just 15 feet long and 7 feet wide, it's officially the smallest pub in Britain.
