My grandparents live here and I've visited a few times. Every time I have gone I enjoy myself, there is quite a few sights to see. I would recommend the castle and they have some lovely shops.

A pleasant historic market town Bury, as the locals call it has a lot to see, a museum, a cathedral, the abbey gardens and the UKs smallest pub. If you visit bank on spending the whole day shopping and sightseeing.
