Welcome to the official tourism website for Bury

Due to the Covid-19 outbreak many of our businesses are currently closed and several events have been cancelled or rescheduled. Throughout this difficult time, you can discover virtual events and on line activities by visiting our events and attractions pages. We look forward to welcoming you back to our lovely town very soon.

Discover award winning attractions, stunning open spaces and fantastic food and drink.  Home to the East Lancashire Railway, and Bury’s world famous market.  The Bury Cultural Quarter boasts many of the most fascinating museums in the UK: the internationally respected Bury Art Museum, the proud regimental Fusilier Museum and Bury Transport Museum providing a wealth of attractions and activity. For culture lovers Bury Sculpture Centre provides an impressive programme of activity including the works of internationally renowned artists. For comedy, music and an extensive programme of live entertainment visit The MET Bury’s live arts and theatre venue.

Our lively towns and charming villages are all rich with heritage, history and fascinating stories. Each with unique and varied shopping, food and drink on offer. 

Experience Bury's year round calendar of events. Step back in time on the East Lancashire Railway for a 1940s weekend, experience Bury Night Light, a host of music festivals and our very own original Ramsbottom Chocolate Festival.

Relax and unwind within miles of stunning open countryside with breathtaking views, rolling hills and vast moorlands. Visitors cannot help but be inspired by Bury’s beautiful countryside, all within easy reach.
