Beautifully kept and much larger than we expected. Dog friendly on leash. A nice surprise in the centre of Bury St Edmunds.

Well maintained all of year round. A credit to the gardeners. Although Magna Carta was signed at Runnymede it was drawn up in the Abbey here. Lots of historic interest and a large play park for the children

The Abbey gardens are beautiful and you can also see the cathedral and the Norman tower. They are immaculate.

Beautiful gardens brimming with history! Very family friendly with a large area to run around and a large play park. There are also lots of hidden little private style gardens with stunning sculptures and running fountains. A lovely day out for sure.
