Highlights

 

Southwold   |   Thorpeness   |   Aldeburgh   |   Sutton Hoo   |   Waldringfield   |   River Deben Cruise   |   Guided Tour of Otley Hall & Gardens   |   Helmingham Hall Gardens

 

Day One

We depart from your home with our exclusive door to door pick-up service as we travel across country to Suffolk with comfort stops enroute.  Arrive at your hotel late afternoon, time to relax before dinner.

 

Day Two

Today we enjoy a tour along the picturesque Suffolk coast, starting with a visit to Southwold, complete with its famous painted beach huts and delightful pier, before continuing to the pretty village of Thorpeness, with its pretty mock Tudor houses and fairy-tale ‘House in the Clouds’.  We enjoy free time here for lunch before continuing to Aldeburgh which retains features from a bygone era.

 

Day Three

After breakfast we enjoy a guided tour at the world famous Anglo Saxon burial site of Sutton Hoo, the hauntingly beautiful 255 acre estate which is home to one of the greatest archaeological discoveries of all time.  We discover the story of the ship burial of an Anglo Saxon King, explore the award winning exhibition and the full-size reconstruction of the burial chamber (please note:  the walk to the burial mounds is a 10-15 min outdoor walk on flat ground, however passengers who are less mobile can visit the exhibition, café and small shop).  In the afternoon we make our way to Waldringfield where we enjoy a 2 hour cruise with tea/coffee and scones along the River Deben, one of the most beautiful and scenic spots on the east coast.

 

Day Four

Our excursion today is a guided tour of outstanding Otley Hall & Gardens, widely regarded as one of the most beautiful historic houses in the UK (please note:  there are unavoidable stairs to the first floor of the house) followed by a ploughman’s lunch.  In the afternoon we explore nearby Helmingham Hall Gardens.

 

Day Five

Today after breakfast we bid farewell and begin our homeward journey with refreshment stops enroute.
