Our new tour to East Anglia concentrates on the three counties featuring St Georges Distiller in Norfolk, the Chocolate Lady of Steeple Bumpstead and the renowned Tiptree Jams in Essex, and we are ideally based in Ipswich for all attractions.

 

DAY ONE

We depart from your own front door, join your tour coach and travel to East Anglia with comfort stops enroute.  Tea/coffee and biscuits will be served on your arrival at the hotel whilst your luggage is taken to your rooms, time to relax before dinner.

 

DAY TWO

Our day begins with a journey to the medieval village of Lavenham in the heart of Suffolk, time to explore this historic gem, including the famous Guildhall and streets with their delightful timber-framed houses.  We also have time to obtain lunch here before we continue on our way taking in the picture postcard villages of Cavendish and Clare to the village of Steeple Bumpstead where we visit the Chocolate Lady and learn the art of making handmade chocolates. This is followed by a cream tea before we make our way back to our hotel.

 

DAY THREE

This morning we head south into Essex and Wilkin’s Tiptree Jam Museum, tea room and shop, here you can enjoy another cream tea before we make our way into Ipswich for free time.

 

DAY FOUR

Our final excursion takes us to Norfolk and Thetford via the English Whiskey Company Distillery; here we enjoy the St Georges Tour.  A guide takes us onto the distilling floor and explains how whiskey is made; we then go to the Warehouse to breathe in the amazing aroma.  To end the tour we have a tasting of one or two of the wonderful malt whiskies.   The site was opened in 2017 by Prince Charles and features a coffee shop, Kitchen & River Walks, time at leisure before returning to our hotel.

 

DAY FIVE

After a leisurely breakfast we depart our hotel for our homeward journey with comfort stops enroute.
