Pocket Guide: Bury St Edmunds Bury St Edmunds Abbey Hotels

Once a wealthy monastery, Bury St. Edmunds Abbey is a striking medieval landmark that is noted for its large gatehouses. It's centrally located close to a great selection of deluxe and budget friendly Bury St. Edmunds hotels, and takes its name from the early-medieval martyr St. Edmund.

More About Bury St. Edmunds Abbey

Although partially destroyed after the Dissolution of the Monasteries in the 16th Century, Bury St. Edmunds Abbey retains many of its original features such as the Norman Tower and 14th-century Great Gate. The abbey, which dates back to the early-11th Century, remained a powerful monastic centre for well over 500 years, and has a well-preserved font with a collection of beautiful houses dating from the 16th to the 18th centuries.

Wherever you stay near the abbey, you'll enjoy comfortable, good quality bedding and attractive furnishings. Many hotels also have en-suite bathrooms and coffee-making facilities, and some also have additional sofa beds for your convenience.

Learn About This Town's Proud Links with the Magna Carta

In 1214, a group of barons met at the abbey and swore an oath to persuade King John to approve a Charter of Liberties. This document has been interpreted by historians as a precursor to one of the world's most famous documents, the Magna Carta, which was signed near Windsor in the following year and stated that no one, not even a monarch, should be above the law.

Hotels near Bury St. Edmunds Abbey also provide easy access to the town's excellent restaurants and inns, which serve everything from mouth-watering local classics to popular international cuisines.

Close to the Town's Grand Cathedral

See Bury St. Edmunds' iconic Cathedral or St. Edmundsbury, which was built on a site that has been a place of worship for more than nine centuries. Although the current building did not become an official cathedral until the late 20th century, the church was originally part of Bury St. Edmunds's Abbey before it was remodelled from the 16th Century onwards.

In the evening, enjoy a relaxing drink at your hotel bar, or spend some time at one of Bury St. Edmunds' charming historic pubs
