Suffolk’s Serene Coast & Gardens

As one of the most beautiful areas of England, Suffolk retains a quintessential charm that makes it a worthy addition to any programme.
Day 1 Arrival
We arrive at our hotel in time for dinner.

Day 2 The Suffolk Coast
Today we enjoy a tour along the picturesque Suffolk coast, starting with a visit to Southwold, complete with its famous painted beach huts and lovely pier, before continuing to the pretty village of Thorpeness, with its pretty mock Tudor houses and the 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 3 Sutton Hoo & Deben Boat Cruise
Today, 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 outdoor walk on flat ground, 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 4 Otley Hall & Helmingham Hall Gardens
This morning, we enjoy a guided tour of outstanding Otley Hall and 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 5 Departure
We begin our journey home today.
