Cultural tours of Bury St Edmunds for free

Bury St Edmunds is inviting people to enjoy some of England’s cultural and architectural heritage at the Heritage Open Days event. 

Heritage Open days offer free access to properties that are usually closed to the public or normally charge for admission. This year’s event will run from Thursday 8 to Sunday 11 September. 

The 2011 Heritage Open Days programme includes a new tour of Lackford and West Stow. Visitors can take a trip in a free coach around Lackford lakes with its diverse wildlife habitats, Fullers Mill and its seven-acre garden, and West Stow Anglo-Saxon Village where you can discover how the First English people lived their lives. 

This year’s line-up also features a new lecture from Sheila Reed, from Bury St Edmunds Record Office, on 200 years of a Bury property, and an illustrated talk called ‘Behind the Pipes’ about the new Cathedral organ. 

People interested in finding out more about the events and attractions at Heritage Open Days can contact the Bury St Edmunds Tourist Information Centre on 01284 764667, or email Details are also available on
