Welcome to Bungay
An aesthetic and thriving market town surrounded by the river Waveney, Bungay boasts a number of interesting historic attractions such as Bungay Castle and beautiful rural surroundings. The name of the town is derived from an Anglo-Saxon title, and its 12th century church, St Mary’s, is said to have been visited by Black Shuck, a ghostly black dog haunting the coasts of East Anglia.
Getting to know Norfolk
Though part of Suffolk, Bungay lies just 15 miles south of Norwich, a city where the old and the new blend in a seamless and wonderful way. One of the most complete medieval cities in the UK, Norwich also has a vibrant arts scene inherent in places like the Sainsbury Centre of Visual Art. Elsewhere in Norfolk, there are many historical sites such as Blickling Estate and King’s Lynn, while scenic Cromer Pier offers a rich programme of festivals and events throughout the year.
See the awe-inspiring Norwich Cathedral
Norwich Cathedral is the most complete Norman cathedral in England, and one of the most impressive examples of Romanesque architecture in the whole of Europe. Here, you can hear fascinating and often haunting stories spanning the cathedral’s 900-year history, explore the largest cloisters and cathedral close in Britain, and enjoy a tranquil stroll through the modern herb and Japanese gardens.
