This is a great place to relax and enjoy a warm summer day. Plenty of open space to spread out for a picnic or play sport. Very well kept garden.

Other than the history of the spot it is really a pretty park with abbey ruins sticking up here and there. If you are in Bury St Edmund it is hard to miss but won't change your life.

Love visiting this place. Relaxing and restorative. Have a stroll around the ruins, or take a book and just chill for the afternoon. Good for kids too.

What remains of the Abbey ruins are in the lovely Abbey gardens. The ruins are quite interesting and there are information boards giving lots of details on the Abbey.

Amazing considering the time lag since construction that there are so many ruins still there for all to see. An amazing history and well worth a visit.
