Welcome to Bungay – Attracting visitors for over 450 years!
Today, visitors can enjoy a holiday, short break or day out exploring the history of the Town, it’s shops, restaurants & cafés.
The natural beauty of the surrounding area with far ranging views over verdant water meadows, which flood most winters, but fringed with silver green willows, and grazed by cattle in the summer months, creating a tranquil, beautiful landscape – a scene that has changed little in the last 150 years, and only enhances the experience for the visitor.
The many tourists that come to visit Bungay every year value the gentle pace of life and many chose to return again and again. Little wonder it is often described as “the jewel in Waveney’s crown”. What’s more it is easily accessible by car from London, The South East and The Midlands.

Eating & Shopping
A magnet for eating & drinking, Bungay offers a range of great restaurants, pubs & cafes to eat. And in most cases you can complement the food with locally produced beers, cider & wine. Refreshingly, there are none of the branded food outlets serving standard “across the-board” dishes. If it’s retail treats you’re after, you will enjoy exploring Bungay’s many individual and specialist shops, some of which have been established for many years. Read more…
Where to Stay
Bungay was once the home of a man who might be described as “the saint of sleep”! When a wealthy local solicitor, Frederick Smith’s wife became ill, the clatter of horses and carts on the cobbles below her bedroom, disturbed her sleep. Smith paid for the cobbles to be re-paved with cork bricks to muffle the noise.
Whilst the alley still retains its unusual name, the horses and carts have long disappeared and Bungay offers a choice of stylish accommodation available in the Town itself and also in the neighbouring villages – Accommodation comes in all shapes & sizes, so whether you are looking for a Hotel, Bed & Breakfast, Self-Catering or Camping there is something to suit all preferences and all purses.
