Day One – Travel  to Suffolk with a stop in Cambridge en route

Day Two – Today we visit the much admired Beth Chatto Gardens, where admission is included.  Once an overgrown wasteland, the gardens are an inspiration to all visitors.  We then transfer to Waldringfield to board our river cruise along the calm waters of the River Deben, one of the most beautiful spots on the East Coast.  After our cruise, we visit Woodbridge, the largest market town on the river and home to one of only five tide-mills restored in the UK.

Day Three – Today we take an excursion to Lavenham for a guided walking tour.  Known as ‘England’s Finest Medieval Village’, Lavenham is a quaint village with fine examples of timber framed Tudor buildings.  We then transfer to Flatford, home to the 18th century mill made famous in Constable’s paintings, before visiting the delightful village of Dedham.

Day Four – Today we visit the eclectic yet find garden of RHS Hyde Hall with wonderful panoramic views over Essex which often surprises visitors before transferring for some time at leisure in the seaside resort of Frinton-on-Sea with its tree lined avenues and elegant esplanade.

Day Five – After checking out of the hotel we visit the charming seaside town of Aldeburgh for some free time before our return journey.
