DAY ONE

We depart from your home with our exclusive door to door pick-up service, join your tour coach and travel to East Anglia, arriving late afternoon.  Tea/coffee awaits you on arrival whilst your luggage is taken to your room; enjoy a glass of wine with dinner tonight.

 

DAY TWO

This morning we discover the idyllic villages of Constable Country, including the birthplace of the famous painter of East Bergholt, an unspoilt village with many fine old houses and cottages.  The church at Dedham with its 131ft tower and the little hamlet of Flatford Mill, were favourite landscape subjects and you can soak up these scenes of England at first hand.  This afternoon we visit the ‘Essex Sunshine Coast’ with bustling Clacton-on-Sea and the more relaxed Walton-on-the-Naze, returning later to our hotel.

 

DAY THREE

Today’s excursion takes us into the rural north and the coastal village of Thorpeness, here we pass The House in the Clouds, one of the country’s most famous follies, originally built as a water tower, now a family holiday base.  We come to the time warp seaside town of Aldeburgh, little changed for many years.  From here we continue to historic Southwold and in the afternoon we have a short break in Woodbridge.

 

DAY FOUR

This morning we journey to historic Bury St. Edmunds, famous for its Abbey Gardens and the Angel hotel where Dickens had Mrs Pickwick stay.  We have time to explore to town – today it is Market day. From here we head for the pretty villages of Cavendish and Clare, with their pastel coloured cottages, to take a break in Lavenham, one of our best preserved medieval villages with its many colourful and half-timbered houses.

 

DAY FIVE

This morning after a leisurely breakfast we must sadly bid farewell and begin our homeward journey with comfort stops enroute.

 

Price Includes:

·          Luxury coach travel

·          Home pick up

·          4 nights’ accommodation, dinner & breakfast

·          Glass of wine with dinner first evening.
