By train to Bury St. Edmunds
The easiest way to get to Bury St. Edmunds is surely by train. There are National Express coach services, but these are not as frequent as the the train does. Bury St. Edemunds is located on the line between Cambridge and Ipswich with hourly services on weekdays into both directions. During the week, there are also services from/to London/Liverpool Street and Peterborough on every second hour. For services on weekends or more information about the schedules, check the National Rail page or one of the usual pages like thetrainline.com.
The town centre is around 500 meters from the train station. It is hard to miss as any street going southwards will bring you into the centre. If in doubt, take Northgate Street, which leads you almost straight to the cathedral and former abbey grounds.
