Colin Crosby Heritage Tours

Bury St. Edmunds (A Coach Trip in Bury St. Edmunds)

“Bury St. Edmunds” is a Coach Trip devised and led by the well-known Blue Badge Guide Colin Crosby, of Colin Crosby Heritage Tours, as part of his year-round programme.

These excursions are an enjoyable way of learning some Local History.

The coach for Bury St. Edmunds leaves St. Margarets Bus Station at 8am, and is expected back around 9.30pm.

Colin will be giving his usual commentary along the way.

He will also be leading a Guided Walk around Bury St. Edmunds, pointing out many places of interest, including Bury St. Edmunds Cathedral, Angel Hill, Abbey Gardens, Theatre Royal, the Nutshell and Moyse’s Hall.

Bury St. Edmunds is a very old town in the beautiful Suffolk countryside that was originally called Bedricsworth.

The change came when St. Edmund, the King of East Anglia, was defeated in battle by the Danes and subsequently murdered. His body, after resting at the wooden church at Greenstead-juxta-Ongar in Essex, was brought here to be buried. The town then became known as St. Edmundsbury, which is still used as an alternative name.

An important Abbey grew up in the town, and some of its ruins can still be seen in the beautiful gardens. One of the associated churches is now the Cathedral.

It was at Bury St. Edmunds that the barons drew up the Magna Carta, designed to limit the power of King John.

Colin will be referring to all this history and more during the visit to Bury St. Edmunds.
