HOLIDAY HIGHLIGHTS

 

Aldeburgh   |   Southwold   |   Woodridge   |   Jimmy’s Farm   |   Ipswich   |   Lavenham   |  Museum of East Anglian Life

 

DAY ONE

We depart from your home with our exclusive home pick-up service, join your tour coach and travel to East Anglia with comfort stops enroute.  Tea/coffee and biscuits will be served on arrival and entertainment is provided on two evenings during your stay.

 

DAY TWO

We begin today with a ride through picturesque villages to Snape and Aldeburgh, where we will take a break.  Aldeburgh is something of a time-warp, with Victoria Houses on the seashore, an attractive main street taking you to the marina.   The composer Benjamin Britten lived and worked in Aldeburgh.  Moving on we head for Southwold, a charmingly old-fashioned seaside town with an atmosphere of years gone by.  Patel coloured cottages, Georgian houses, lighthouse, delightful pier and iconic beach huts, an abundance of shops, cafes, and pubs, ideal for your lunch break.  From here we return south to Woodbridge a thriving old town on the River Deben with an attractive marketplace.  The river is very popular with sailing boats and all types of craft moored.

 

DAY THREE

This morning we begin with a short drive to Jimmy’s Farm – seen on TV and developed over many years from a derelict site to a thriving business, now we can see the changes with an exclusive behind the scenes tour of Jimmy’s Farm.  We then make our way into Ipswich for free time before returning to our hotel.

 

DAY FOUR

For our final excursion we head for the historic town of Lavenham with coloured houses and unique Guildhall, time to explore and enjoy a coffee before we move onto Stowmarket.  Here we visit the unique and interesting Museum of East Anglia Life.  This is an open-air museum set in 80 acres of countryside with over 45000 objects exploring the area’s rural and social history.  There are also many animals to be seen, including rare breed sheep.  The newly restored abbots Hall is well worth a look and Osier Café is an ideal place for a drink and bite to eat.

 

DAY FIVE

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