  • A good balance: This is the ideal destination for those looking for a typical British environment without giving up the commodities of a modern town. Bury St Edmunds offers a typical British environment, not radically multiethnic as more famous locations are. The town has a modern shopping centre with all shops and services of a big city.
  • Near to London and Cambridge: At a distance of only 45 minutes from Cambridge and 90 minutes from London. Those interested can easily spend the weekend in these more famous locations.
