Here you will find the smallest pub in Britain – The Nutshell, although it may be a little crowded during the Fayre! The Traverse offers lovely independent stores, including designer fashion, quaint tearooms, traditional chemist and old fashioned sweets. New for this year we have our Haart’s Stage with some traditional choirs and Christmas Music.



Auntie Pam’s Sweet Shop is a traditional family sweet Shop. Come down and visit them in The Traverse during the Fayre and get 10% of all Christmas order placed as well as 10% off anything brought in the shop.


In the rush of modern life step back and enjoy the elegantly decorated Harriets tearooms which are filled with the sounds of live piano music. Indulge in a treat from a bygone era, served by the traditional ‘nippys’, who make every visit a memorable one. 

Harriets Café Tearooms in Bury St Edmunds was the first of the family run Tearooms within East Anglia, fabulously complimented by Cambridge and Norwich so you can rest assured that the Harriets “Truly English Experience” is never more than a stone’s throw away. 

Harriets is open seven days a week, serving Breakfast, Lunch and Afternoon Tea.
