Bury Ale Trail

Historic Bury St Edmunds is the perfect place to experience delicious real ale and unique craft beer.

When you raise a glass in Bury you become part of an incredible and unrivalled brewing history dating back 1,000 years. In 1086, monks were brewing ale on the site of the Great Abbey using water from Bury’s chalk wells which are still used today by Greene King, one of the UK’s largest ale breweries.

From award-winning public houses to unique bars, there is a great choice of real ale and craft beer as well as live music, beer festivals and quiz nights throughout the year providing something for everyone!

Join us on a 90-minute walking tour to explore the watering holes and history of Bury St Edmunds. We plan to stop for a beer along the way, but please note this is not a pub crawl! Future dates are shown on our website. Tours will run with a minimum of six adults and a maximum of 20. Tickets are £6 each.

If you wish to arrange a private group tour, at a date and time especially for you, please contact us.

Mark your place in history, share your experience, tell others about your favourite pub, bar or speciality shop on Twitter using #BuryAleTrail.
