A Suffolk town has been named among the best in the UK. 

Bury St Edmunds in west Suffolk has been named among the best towns in the country by the national newspaper The Times. 

The town, which has been crowned by some as the foodie capital of the county, was praised by The Times for its tiered baskets and generous planters in the town centre. 

Describing the town's floral displays, The Times said: "About 500 baskets are planted each May and sustainability is an increasing focus: every basket and planter on display in the town is self-watering, and uses a capillary matting system with a water reservoir that enables the plants to absorb water slowly without drying out over summer; rainwater is also collected in tanks to nourish them."

The Angel Hotel was also named as a great place to stay in the town and praised for its attractive climbers and adorned with window boxes.

There is also plenty to do in Bury St Edmunds - including great parks, historic landmarks and independent shops.
