The Angel enjoys Bury St Edmunds' finest location without question, facing its own historic square and overlooking the abbey ruins. The only drawback is the cars that use the square as a giant carpark but you couldn't be better placed for seeing the sights of Bury, with the town waiting to be discovered all around you. There's lots to see; start with the ruins and abbey church opposite, take in the brewery and shops and market square, and then devote yourself to its many restaurants and pubs, starting off in the Nutshell - officially the country's smallest pub.

By car: The hotel is 2 hours from London, 40 mins from Cambridge and 2 hours 15 mins from Nottingham. There is free parking on-site.

By train: London Kings Cross to Bury St Edmunds (via Cambridge) takes around 1 hour 45 mins. The hotel is a 5-minute taxi ride or 15-minute walk from the station. Book trains to Bury St Edmunds.
