Welcome to Bungay, Suffolk
A Fine Old Town
Bungay is a beautiful historic market town, in the heart of the Waveney Valley, with roots that can be traced back to Roman times.
Nestling within a wide meander of the river Waveney, which forms the border between Norfolk and Suffolk, Bungay was, and is, in an excellent position then, to ward off invaders, now to explore the delights of both Norfolk and Suffolk.
Standing proudly in the centre of Market Place is the Buttercross, built in the 17th century with the statue of Justice on top of the dome, erected some 60 years later. The Buttercross was paired with a Corn Cross, long since demolished, and marked Bungay’s importance as a vibrant market town. Indeed, a weekly market still takes place around the Buttercross each Thursday.
From here it is just a few steps to first visit the old Benedictine priory ruins which lie behind the majestic St. Mary’s church and, over the road and through the passageway opposite the Buttercross the castle can be found. Also in picturesque ruins the castle can be accessed through the café that sits beside it.
Bungay is known for its many independent shops, pubs, restaurants and cafes but step away from the centre and you will find yourself, whether you go north or east, by the river where you can explore the delights of Falcon Meadow or Outney Common.
Welcome to Bungay!
