Free tours of Bury St Edmunds will herald the new tourism season as part of the town’s celebration of English Tourism Week.

Organised by the town’s tour guides, it is hoped the tours will encourage local people to find out more about where they live.

They will last about one and a half hours and will start at 2pm on March 21.

Bookings should be made at the Cathedral Tourist Information Point on Angel Hill, where the tours will begin.

English Tourism Week 2015 is a week-long celebration of events, from March 14-22, which showcase the quality and vibrancy of visitor experiences and the value of the tourist industry.

Sarah Friswell, who manages the team of volunteers who operate the Cathedral Tourist Information Point, said: “Bury St Edmunds has a rich and vibrant history, and often, as local residents, we do not see what is on our doorsteps.”

She added: “We are looking forward to another busy year in the town, with many visitors coming to enjoy all the town’s amenities. English Tourism helps to showcase the great things we have available.”

Moyse’s Hall Museum is also offering free tours of the building and its collections at 2pm tomorrow for the first 20 people to book either at Moyses’ Hall or at the Cathedral Tourist Information Point.
