Your Town | Bungay
Bungay is a thriving market town in a loop of the River Waveney. The origin of the name of Bungay is thought to derive from the Anglo-Saxon title Bunincga-haye, signifying the enclosure of the tribe of Bonna, a Saxon chieftain.
It has a wealth of historical sites including the ruins of Bigod’s Castle, the ancient Butter Cross in the town centre, a Roman well and a Saxon church.
Bungay has its own mayor, town reeve and town crier, traditions which it has kept alive for many years.
The town is home to the Fisher Theatre and an indoor swimming pool and has its own marathon which was renamed this year as the Bungay Festival of Running, and a two-week festival in the summer to showcase everything on offer.
