Hi writing this review about Bury St Edmunds as i have lived here for 14 years now. The town is quite small with a population of just over 35,000 i beleive. Bury St Edmunds is a very interesting town with a lot of history and character and is home to Britains smallest pub known as The Nutshell. Bury St Edmunds has a very old town centre and oiginally started life as a market town, there is still a market here every Saturday and Wednesday. The town centre is very compact with everything being close to hand and all shops not to far away.

If you are going to write about a place please get your facts straight - however trivial. It is Greene King not green. The Bury Free Press is 55p. Frankie and Benny's not Johnny's. The Bay Tree not Leaf is not in the same street as Starbucks, the leisure centre was closed due to a fire it was not burned down to the ground. The Manor House Museum closed in March 2006!.

I have lived in Bury St Edmunds for 19 years, and it, more than any other place, is my home. I met my second husband, Sam here, both of my children met and married their partners here and I expected to remain here now for the duration until we decided a couple of years ago that we wanted to sell up and buy a liveaboard Dutch barge and cruise the European Waterways until the end of our days...but that's another story! We actually moved to a little village about 10 miles outside of the town, nine years ago, on my 50th birthday but we both worked in the town until Sam retired 2 years ago and I took early retirement 3 months ago and therefore, most of our lives have ...

Before deserting for the bright lights of the big city I lived in a village close to Bury for 17 years. The village that I lived in, Depden is about 7 miles away from the town and Bury is the closest town to it. Bury is quite a small town with a population of around 30,000 people. It is an old town with many buildings dating back many centuries. The Magna Carta was even signed in Bury abbey! (wow). The town centre is quite small and does not have a very good selection of shops. It has some of the main branch stores such as Woolworths and Marks and Spencers, but if you are after something more specialised then you need to take a trip to either Cambridge or ...

Bury St Edmunds is just about 16 miles from my home town of Haverhill (also in Suffolk). I am in a wheelchair, and find that Bury St Edmunds isn't wheelchair friendly at all. However, it is a pretty town with a priory,(complete with a some caged birds and wild ducks+geese). Where on a nice summers day you could spend the day with a picnic! The town has a vast selection of shop's, although many of the big stores are out of the town centre, and require transport. While Bury is a pretty nice town, it is by far my favourite! ...
