The shop at St Edmundsbury Cathedral in Bury St Edmunds has now reopened following a refurbishment.

The shop, which has been operating since the 1970s, has been an important part of the cathedral visitor experience.

It also houses the Tourist Information Point (TIP), which was closed for some months in 2021 due to flood damage.

The cathedral said the shop refit gave the opportunity to repair this damage and the TIP has also reopened.

The refit has updated and modernised the building and its fixtures and fittings.

The new-look shop is airy, light and spacious, creating a better shopping experience, the cathedral said.

Customers will find new ranges in the shop, including Easter items and cards.
