A historic ivy-clad Suffolk hotel in Bury St Edmunds, with masses of boutique character and two AA Rosette dining - includes breakfast and suite options

Housed in a grand Georgian building whose facade is entangled with ivy, and flaunting a quirky, artistic interior within, The Angel Hotel achieves the perfect blend of traditional elegance and chic modern style. It's no wonder Charles Dickens and Angelina Jolie chose to stay at this boutique base in Bury St Edmunds (not together, obviously).

The guest rooms and suites here are large and impressive, with carefully chosen furnishings, colourful fabrics and luxurious amenities. The two AA Rosette-awarded Eaterie is the hotel's ultra-cool restaurant where a mish-mash of framed artwork lines the walls and beautifully-presented dishes come rich with exciting flavours and fresh ingredients. Elsewhere, try the Wingspan Bar in the 12th-century vault under the hotel, or treat yourself to an afternoon tea if you're feeling a little peckish before dinnertime.

You'll be staying in the very heart of Bury St Edmunds, too, so you can easily explore its cobbled streets, markets and cafés at your leisure. If you're in search of greener pastures, head out and discover the surrounding countryside, parks and forests, or drive down to the pretty Suffolk coast.


Soft carpeted floors, high ceilings, large windows and plush boutique accents set the tone across the thoughtfully and individually designed rooms and suites. Originals rooms are spacious and cosy in style, while Impressions rooms are slightly more contemporary with eye-popping patterns and arty decor. Ivy View suites are exquisitely adorned with rich earthy hues and elegant furnishings, while Contemporary suites steal the show with a freestanding copper bathtub and a mixture of opulent and modern design accents. Some even have views over the historic Abbey Gardens.

Dine in style at two AA Rosette-awarded Eaterie, where quirky art adorns the walls and the food is fresh, locally sourced and pleasing to all senses. Breakfast ranges from a classic full English, to eggs Benedict, buttermilk pancakes, freshly-baked croissants and mixed berry smoothies. Don't miss a chance to try the hotel's divine afternoon tea, and head to the Wingspan Bar in the 12th-century vault under the hotel for an evening tipple.


Set in the heart of the picturesque town of Bury St Edmunds in Suffolk, this hotel is well placed for the discovery of some real country gems. Explore this pretty market town with its stunning cathedral, quaint shops and charming cafes or venture into the surrounding countryside for bracing walks and long picnics.

You can drive to the coast in roughly 40 minutes and have a day by the sea. The nearby cities of Cambridge, Norwich, Ipswich and Colchester are all worth a visit and are all approximately an hour's drive away. Thetford forest is a lovely place to go walking, horse riding or bike riding and is filled with wildlife, including deer.

How do I get there?

Travelling by road is a simple direct route and is easily accessible via most motorways. If you are travelling from London the quickest way is to travel via the M11. The journey takes roughly an hour and a half. It took Dickens much longer.

If you are travelling from Manchester the journey is nearly four hours and from Birmingham it takes two hours and 20 minutes. You can also catch a train to Bury St Edmunds Rail Station from which it's a short transfer to the hotel.
