HOLIDAY HIGHLIGHTS

 

Snape   |   Aldeburgh   |   Southwold   |   Woodbridge   |   Felixstowe   |   Lavenham   |   Bury St Edmunds

 

 

DAY ONE

We depart for your holiday with our exclusive door to door pick-up service, join your tour coach and travel across country to East Anglia with comfort stops enroute.  Tea/Coffee and biscuits will be waiting for you on arrival whilst your luggage is taken to your room, time to relax before dinner.

 

DAY TWO

We begin today with a journey through picturesque villages to Snape and Aldeburgh, where we will take a break.

 

Snape is a must-visit destination for anyone who wants to sample the beauty and atmosphere the suffolk coastal countryside has become famous for, with village history that dates back over 2,000 years.  The River Alde at the Maltings is a haven for birdlife with its expansive estuary. Being tidal it’s a place of glistening mud and shallow open water, filled twice a day by the incoming tide and rich in wildlife during migrating months.

 

 

Aldeburgh is something of a time-warp with Victorian houses on the seashore, an attractive main street taking you to the marina.  Aldeburgh is world-renowned thanks to its connection with Benjamin Britten, the founder of the Aldeburgh Festival, which takes place in June every year. Pastel-coloured 19th Century villas line the promenade and to the east, the pebble beach with fisherman’s huts selling the daily catch.

 

Moving on we head to Southwold, a charmingly old fashioned seaside town with an atmosphere of years gone by.  Pastel coloured cottages, Georgian houses, lighthouse, delightful pier and iconic beach huts, there are plenty of shops, cafes and pubs which will be ideal for lunch.

 

From here we return south to Woodbridge a thriving old town on the River Deben with an attractive market place, the river is very popular with sailing boats and all types of craft moored.

 

 

 

 

DAY THREE

This morning we begin with a short drive taking us to the historic traditional seaside resort of Felixstowe, enjoy a brisk stroll along the seafront or maybe discover the town, enjoy a drink and bite to eat.  Later we make our way into Ipswich for free time before returning to our hotel.

 

DAY FOUR

Today we head first for the historic town of Lavenham with pretty coloured houses and unique Guildhall, time to explore before we head to Bury St Edmunds with its famous Abbey Gardens, connections with Dickens and The Nutshell, reputedly the smallest pub in the country.

This morning after breakfast we depart our hotel and begin our journey home with comfort stops enroute.
