To celebrate the release of the Apple TV + Series Masters of The Air and our connection to this historic story, we have teamed up with The Angel, the iconic luxury 4-star hotel in the heart of the town and Bury St Edmunds Tour Guides to offer one lucky winner and their guest a fantastic two-night stay!

You’ll stay in one of The Angel’s Impressions Rooms, an oasis of calm with glitzy touches of urban design, mixed with rich comfy fabrics and sumptuous beds surrounded by contemporary furniture and arty décor. Plus enjoy a delicious breakfast with the views of the Abbey Gate in their Eaterie restaurant on both mornings of your stay. Their Head Chef is passionate about cooking with local ingredients for inspirational and interesting dishes in their award-winning 2 rosette Eaterie.

The historic Angel Hotel is just across the street from the award-winning Abbey Gardens which features the Appleby Rose Garden. The rose garden was created in memory of the brave young men who lost their lives so far from their homeland from the proceeds of American Serviceman and journalist Tech Sgt John Appleby’s book Suffolk Summer, which he wrote during WWII.

Originally an orchard, the garden has over 400 rose bushes and a very unique feature is a beautiful bench made from the wing of a B17 Flying Fortress, donated by the US Air Force as a token of the partnership between the soldiers who were stationed at Bury St Edmunds and the locals who lived and worked alongside them. There's also a stone monument in memory of the 94th Bomb Group.

While visiting the gardens, you can also wander among the ruins of the Abbey of St Edmund, once one of the richest, largest and most powerful Benedictine monasteries in England.

Who better to show you around Bury St Edmunds than the experienced Bury St Edmunds Tour Guides. They will take you back in time to the days when US servicemen and women came to Suffolk to help turn the tide of the war during the ‘Friendly invasion’ and of the many American connections that the town has with the USA.

Just a 10 minute drive from the hotel is Rougham Control Tower Aviation Museum, one of the best-preserved military buildings in the region, where you can discover the personal stories of the brave American servicemen and women from the US Eighth Air Force who called Bury St Edmunds home. Be sure to also visit the Royal Observer Corps WWII Operations Room at Bury St Edmunds Guildhall and find out how Bury’s skies were protected for US and British pilots by local men and women across the county.

As well as history and heritage galore, Bury St Edmunds is known as Suffolk’s Foodie Capital with award winning restaurants, fantastic shopping, art, culture, stunning parks and countryside. Bury St Edmunds is also a great base to explore the rest of Suffolk and just an hour from the coast.
