The Nutshell

17 The Traverse, BURY ST EDMUNDS, IP33 1BJ

Measuring just 15ft by 7ft, this unique pub has been confirmed as Britain's smallest by Guinness World Records; and somehow more than 100 people and a dog managed to fit inside in the 1980s. It has certainly become a tourist attraction and there's lots to talk about while you enjoy a drink - a mummified cat and the bar ceiling which is covered with paper money. There have been regular sightings of ghosts around the building, including a nun and a monk who apparently weren't praying! No food is available, though the pub jokes about its dining area for parties of two or fewer.
