Tour Highlights

Excursions Included

  • We travel through the Suffolk countryside to the beautiful property of Ickworth, a Georgian Italianate palace in an idyllic English landscape.       With its classical rotunda, the house reflects the Hervey family’s love of Italian architecture and we can discover the history of this fascinating family through the ages.       The Italian style gardens provide ample opportunity for a relaxing walk. Following this visit we continue to Long Melford, a village known for having the longest high street in the country!
  • We head north to Framlingham Castle, an imposing Medieval fortress with an intriguing history. The castle was home to some of the most powerful people in Tudor England and it was behind its towering walls that Mary Tudor was proclaimed Queen of England. Following this visit we make our way to the Suffolk coastal town of Aldeburgh, where we enjoy some free time.
  • We make our way to Stowmarket where we visit the Museum of East Anglian Life.       There are so many fascinating exhibits here, from a blacksmith’s forge, a working watermill and a small farm to the Abbot’s Hall Museum and the Crowe Cottages. After spending much of our day here, we return to the coach and make our way to Sutton Hoo, the famous Anglo Saxon burial site. A hauntingly beautiful 225 acre estate with far-reaching views over the River Deben and home to one of the greatest archaeological discoveries of all time. Whilst here maybe take time to walk to the ancient burial mounds and discover the incredible story of the ship burial of an Anglo-Saxon king and his treasured possessions.
