Bury St Edmunds is a superb old market town with a lot of attractions, including its abbey ruins and gardens and a number of museums. It has a cattle market and a good shopping centre. St Edmundsbury Cathedral is passed twice on the walk. More than half of the route is on Saint Edmund Way, named after the saint to whom the cathedral is dedicated. The paths are good throughout and the final stroll beside the river before crossing to return to the cathedral once you're back in the town, is also pleasant.

A very good walk - some slight changes to the route but still easy to follow. Having the lovely town to explore at the beginning or end of the walk is a real bonus!
