There are twenty six wolves in Bury St Edmunds. Two are at the Cathedral, with others nearby. You are welcome to discover and enjoy the wonderful, unique sculptures of the Bury St Edmunds Wolf Trail. They highlight the story of the Christian King our town is named after: Edmund, King of the East Angles, killed for his faith many centuries ago. That faith inspires the life of St Edmundsbury Cathedral. You are welcome to visit and experience that faith for yourself..

 The ground on which St Edmundsbury Cathedral is built has been holy ground for over a thousand years. Every day of the year, Morning and Evening Prayer is said or sung and the Eucharist is celebrated. In addition, thousands of people come from all over Suffolk and beyond to worship God at special services throughout the year, which celebrate our common life and acknowledge our common concerns.
