At the heart of Bury St. Edmunds lies the ancient connection to Saint Edmund, the original patron saint of England. Legend has it that in the early 9th century, King Edmund was martyred by the invading Danes for his refusal to renounce his Christian faith.

 

His remains were interred in what would become the site of the magnificent Abbey of St. Edmund, a beacon of spiritual and cultural significance throughout the medieval era.
