In accordance with current Coronavirus/Covid-19 restrictions, we are suspending all our tours with immediate effect and until further notice.

We have taken this difficult decision in the interest of the health and safety both of our guides and of the general public, and we will keep it under continuous review as government advice changes.

It is a great disappointment for us to be taking this step in such an important year for the town and the Abbey of St Edmund.

We have prepared an exciting new series of walks to mark the millennium of the abbey, and very much hope we will be able to share these with you before too long.

Until then, we wish all our partners and guests the very best of health, and we hope to see you again soon!
