Troston is a village in the  county of Suffolk.

It is around five miles north-north-east of Bury St Edmunds. Its parish church contains rare mediaeval wall paintings, including dragon-slaying and the Martyrdom of St Edmund.  The village shop, formerly a Wesleyan chapel, has been closed for some time, and is now a private residence. The centre of the village, surrounded by farms, is characterised by housing estates built through the 1950s to 1970s, with minor, more localised, expansion since. Local children attend primary school in nearby Honington.

The local pub, The Bull, has been a central part of the village since the late 1800's.  It has recently changed ownership and is being renovated.  The planned re-opening is  Easter 2017.
