  Abbey Gardens is at the heart of Bury St Edmunds and is a beautiful spot for enjoying its peaceful surroundings, whether a stroll through the garden or sitting down to read a good book. This idyllic garden in the former Benedictine Abbey forms part of a rich history of one of the wealthiest and largest Benedictine monasteries in the UK, which has even been visited by royalty! With the scenic displays of flowers in bloom, and freshly cut grass, paired with the historic backdrop of the former monastery, it’s easy to see why this garden was awarded the Green Flag Award!
