Autumn Colours of Suffolk

Autumn Colours of Suffolk
Rural villages, lush green meadows, rich farmlands and sandy heath lands depicted by the famous painters Constable and Gainsborough. We visit the north of the county with its peaceful towns and villages. A visit to unique Lavenham and Bury St Edmunds enhances the tour. All this combines to give a holiday of particular charm and nostalgia for you to enjoy. Woodbridge is a delight, with bars and cafes overlooking the lake.

Your Itinerary

Monday 11th: Depart from your home area travelling to East Anglia and arriving late afternoon at The Ipswich Hotel. 4 nights stay - dinner, bed and breakfast.

Tuesday 12th: We begin today with a ride through picturesque villages to Snape and Aldeburgh, where we take a break. Aldeburgh is something of a time-warp, with Victorian 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. Pastel coloured cottages, Georgian houses, lighthouse, delightful pier and iconic beach huts, there are plenty of shops, cafes and pubs, 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. Later we return to the hotel.

Wednesday 13th: 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, maybe discover the town, enjoy a drink and bite to eat. Afterwards we make our way into Ipswich for free time to discover the town.

Thursday 14th: For our final day out, we head first for the historic town of Lavenham with pretty coloured houses and unique Guildhall. We have time to explore and enjoy a coffee. Later we head for Bury St Edmunds with its famous Abbey Gardens, connections with Dickens and The Nutshell, reputedly the smallest pub in the country.

Friday 14th: After breakfast we leave and begin our homeward journey.
