Holiday Highlights

We depart and make our way to our
hotel in East Anglia where we enjoy the next 4
nights with dinner bed and breakfast.


• 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 and
you can soak up these scenes of England at
first hand.
• We visit Mersea Island and West Mersea for
a short break.
• From Maldon’s Hythe Quay to Burnham on
Crouch many smugglers tales abound.
• Excursion to historic Bury St.Edmunds,
famous for its Abbey Gardens and the Angel
Hotel, where Dickens had Mrs Pickwick stay.
We have time to explore the town.
• The pretty villages of Cavendish and Clare,
with their pastel coloured cottages, to
take a break in Lavenham, one of our best
preserved medieval villages with its many
colourful and half-timbered houses.


After breakfast we leave and begin our
homeward journey.
