Bury st edmunds by rail to london

My son is looking at bury st edmunds as a place to live but needs to go to London quite often.

Someone told me that regular commuters often use a station other than bury st edmunds which gives a faster route to London but I cannot remember which one it is.

Many thanks

Probably Stowmarket, direct trains to London Liverpool Street.

Bury St Edmunds is not on the main line and involves a change at either Cambridge, or Stowmarket.


Lovely place but not easy for commuting to London. If he is determined, he'd be best driving to Diss or Stowmarket on the A14 and travelling on the train from there. However, I imagine those car parks are busy and expensive.

Some people in that area drive to Epping on the LU Central Line, to save money. Takes about an hour on the road. I would not recommend it and you'd need to be there before 7.
