Bury Saint Edmunds : Michelin's recommendations
Bury St Edmunds boasts the ruins of one of the richest abbeys in Christendom, a cathedral built by John Wastell (architect of King's College Chapel, Cambridge) and a grid-layout town centre that was the first example of town planning since Roman times. English architectural styles have blended here since the 13C, from the Town Hall entrance to 17C and 18C façades and the Victorian Corn Exchange.
