Bury St Edmunds is such a lovely place to visit and the Abbey Gardens are stunning with the beautiful gardens, and the ruins. An ideal place for a picnic, complete with a small outside café and a bird aviary.

An oasis of calm within the busy bustling centre of Bury St.Edmunds. The flowers were beautiful and a tribute to the gardening staff, who could be seen working hard in sweltering temperatures.

A nice garden to walk around and look at the old ruins. A nice aviary to look at the various birds. A nice place to spend some time in.
