Once part of the great Abbey of St Edmund, a major centre of pilgrimage in medieval England, the present day St Edmundsbury Cathedral is situated alongside the award-winning Abbey Gardens. It has developed from the parish church of St James into Suffolk’s Cathedral, where all are welcome
A mix of ancient and modern, the Nave dates from 1503 while the iconic Millennium Tower dominating the skyline of the town was completed in 2005. Visitors can enjoy the enlarged church with its three new chapels, new tower and vaulted ceiling, Treasury, cloisters, the Cathedral Shop and a wonderful cafe/restaurant, known as Pilgrims’ Kitchen.
Throughout the year there are art exhibitions, organ recitals and special events. Seasonal Guided Tours and Tower Tours led by knowledgeable volunteer guides are also available.
We offer all who come to St Edmundsbury Cathedral a very warm welcome.
