  • Beautiful ceilings and stained glass. We spent time with the greeter who was quite knowledgable and he gave us plenty of history related to the church and the general area  more »
  • A very beautiful Cathedral, free admission and a nice cafe. I would recommend the visit as there are also no lines or crowds. Also it is next to the Abbey Gardens.  more »

  • A stunning architectural masterpiece , highly recommended, even for us atheists .... you God followers get all the good buildings !
  • Bury St. Edmunds is a modest sized town which is why finding such a spectacular cathedral here is both a surprise and a delight. It is well maintained and has quite a majestic feel to it. Check out grand ceilings and the mighty pipe organ. The grounds are also stunning.
  • We were greeted warmly when we came in at the end of the day, 4:30. Were invited to walk all around and see everything and take a free map. The lego model is impressive but in its early stages. They need donations to continue. The ceilings are beautifully painted and it should be noted that the windows are worth seeing before sun down, so 3:00. The abbey remains were closed before we could see them but took pictures in front of the impressive gate. The gift shop was lovely and had a Christmas section.
  • Wonderful historic sight. Stop in and help them build the cathedral in Lego.
  • All I can say is WOW. Beautiful example of a Anglo church. Huge but cozy.
