Visitors to Bury St Edmunds can once again visit to the tourist information point at St Edmundsbury Cathedral.

The information hub is part of the Cathedral Shop, on Angel Hill.

It has been closed since March 2020, firstly because of the pandemic and various lockdown restrictions, which prevented it from re-opening.

Then a serious flood in May 2021 caused damage to the stock and fittings, requiring extensive repair.

The newly refurbished Tourist Information Point is now open from 10am to 5pm Mondays to Saturdays and 11.30am to 4pm on Sundays.

A team of volunteers is on hand to answer questions, give directions, hand out maps and trails and advise visitors on the wealth of attractions and events available in the town and surrounding area.

The Information Point also stocks souvenir books, postcards and gifts for sale.

“We are delighted to re-open this important facility which provides a vital source of information for visitors and locals alike,” comments Sarah Friswell, visitor experience manager at the cathedral.

“Visitors numbers have been steadily increasing as we move out of the pandemic restrictions and we are ready to help visitors get the most from their visit to Bury St Edmunds.”

The Tourist Information Point is one of a number in the town including The Apex and Moyses’ Hall Museum.
