Bury St Edmunds has long been famed for its sites of religious significance, including St Mary's Church, the third-largest parish church in England. Nearby, the Church of England founded the Bury St Edmunds Cathedral after the establishment of the St Edmundsbury and Ipswich Diocese.
Remains of a medieval abbey can also be explored in Bury St Edmunds. Only the Great Gate remains intact, though the gardens provide a relaxing environment to look back in history.
Bury St Edmunds has also been an important town in the county for another reason - the production of ales at Greene King Brewery. This brewery, founded in 1799, offers tours of the facilities and a museum exploring the history of beer production in Bury St Edmunds.
