The cathedral itself if beautiful and well worth a visit, but the newly-available tower tours are wonderful, and should be of particular interest too to Bury residents, who may have got used to having a cathedral around, and perhaps not visit too often. The tower tour is moderately strenuous, involving narrow spiral staircases and a short stretch of companionway-style ladder,... 更多

First visited over 40 years ago - since then they have completed the enlargement, including the new tower, and the result is lightness, soaring simple gothic beauty, and a welcoming and peaceful space. A plus for me was the organist practicing - really brought the place alive. Good catering, lovely gardens to wander in as well.

All cathedrals are fascinating and this one is no different. The tour is recommended as it helps explain some of the lesser well-known details around the building. The tower is very impressive as are the Abbey gardens which are worth a look.
No museum piece, this is a working cathedral with lots of events and things going on. Now that the tower is accessible, you can climb the steps and have a fantastic view from the top. There is also an excellent café (Pilgrims' Kitchen) and a Treasury. And you have the opportunity to help build a replica cathedral in Lego!
Visited this afternoon and was impressed by all the helpers we met in the cathedral. It's a truly beautiful place to visit. The colour is amazing - make sure you make good use of the special mirror that allows you to see the ceiling paintings clearly, without craning your neck!

A wonderful cathedral and very interesting. Could have spent much longer than two hours looking at the architecture etc. Good food there too!

Bury cathedral is a lovely place to visit. It has a peaceful bright airy feel to it. They are currently raising funds by building a lego model of the building. Visitors donating money to add their bricks. It's in its early stages at the moment. There is a cafe where you can sit in the garden and have a light... 更多

I was so so fortunate last night in being one of the first members of the public to visit and ascend the tower of the St James Cathedral in Bury St Edmunds. We were taken on a preview visit by the verger who tells me she often comes up the tower just to enjoy the amazing views of the town.... 更多
