The Market calls itself 'World Famous' and 'Really Huge'; both descriptions are somewhat subjective.
A Bury family on holiday in Blackpool booked onto a Magical Mystery Tour with a local coach firm and found themselves back on Bury market ! Whether this anecdote is actually true or not is difficult to prove. However, in the past year coach companies around the country have organised over 1000 coach trips to Bury Market for their customers who like to shop and look out for a bargain. Regular trips arrive from as far away as Birmingham, Carlisle, Durham, North Yorkshire, and Wales.
