Rural villages, lush green meadows, rich farmlands and sandy heathlands depicted by the famous painters Constable & Gainsborough.  We visit the north of the county with its peaceful coastline, pretty Bury St Edmunds, Felixstowe and unique Lavenham completes the tour.  All this combines to give a holiday of particular charm and nostalgia for you to enjoy.

 

 

DAY ONE

We depart from your home with our door to door pick-up service, you will join your coach and travel to East Anglia with comfort stops enroute.  Arriving late afternoon at your hotel, tea/coffee and biscuits will be served 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 & Aldeburgh where we will take a comfort break.  Aldeburgh is something of a time-warp with Victorian houses on the seashore, and an attractive main street taking you to the marina, the composer Benjamin Britten lived and worked in Aldeburgh. 

 

This afternoon we head for Southwold, a charmingly old-fashioned seaside town with an atmosphere of years gone by, pastel coloured cottages, Georgian houses, lighthouse, delightful pier, shops, cafes and pubs make it an ideal spot to obtain 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 discover the idyllic villages on our tour of Constable Country, including the birthplace of the famous painter at 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 of Constable and you can soak up these scenes of England at first hand.  In the afternoon we visit the ‘Essex Sunshine Coast’ with bustling Clacton-on-Sea and more relaxed Walton-on-the-Naze.

 

DAY FOUR

After breakfast we head for Bury St Edmunds with its famous Abbey Gardens, connections with Dickens and The Nutshell, reputedly the smallest pub in the country.  From here we drive through the countryside and Thetford Forest, arriving at the historic town of Lavenham with pretty coloured houses and unique Guildhall, time to explore and perhaps enjoy a coffee before we move onto Stowmarket.

 

DAY FIVE

Today after breakfast we begin our homeward journey with comfort stops enroute.
