Bury St Edmunds is an attractive, unspoilt historic market town, centrally placed in the East of England. The A14 connects the town to the UK and the major port of Felixstowe, and Stansted and Norwich international airports only 50 miles away. It has a diverse range of businesses and employers spread throughout the town, as well as 12 business parks and industrial estates. The town's future business growth will primarily be focused at Suffolk Business Park which is 68 hectares of allocated employment land on the eastern side of Bury St Edmunds.
The town has maintained a strong trading position and benefited from £100 million of inward investment in the form of the arc, a stunning extension to the retail core of Bury St Edmunds that opened five years ago and moved the town into the top 150 retail rankings.
