Scenes of Suffolk (based in Ipswich)

Based at The NOVOTEL




5 DAYS FROM £297


Situated on the east coast of England, Suffolk is a county filled with natural beauty, bordered by 50 miles of glorious coastline and topped with breathtaking skies; its charming villages and medieval towns draw in artists and writers, whilst its bounty of great produce and restaurants make it a destination for foodies. Ipswich is England’s oldest continuously inhabited town. With its cutting edge arts scene and excellent shopping opportunities, much of the town’s life centres around the iconic waterfront, where cafés and restaurants stand alongside galleries, shops and museums, while yachts and boats sail in and out of the marina.


Ideally situated in Ipswich centre, our base for the tour is the very comfortable NOVOTEL which is located within walking distance of the shops and marina. Features of the Novotel include a restaurant, contemporary bar and fitness centre and all of the bright modern en suite bedrooms have tv, telephone, hairdryer and hospitality tray. A passenger lift serves all floors.


Monday 29th October
Departing Newark mid morning, we travel south with an extended break in Bury St Edmunds (approximately 2 hours) for lunch/sightseeing, before continuing so to our base at Ipswich.

Tuesday 30th October – Thursday 1st November
Scheduled excursions during our stay will include the following:
• Full day tour including a visit to the Beth Chatto Gardens. Created by Beth Chatto and her husband in the 1960’s her original overgrown fruit orchard was transformed into beautiful gravel, water and woodland gardens under her mantra – ‘the right plant for the right place’. Out visit here will be followed by free time in the lovely city of Colchester
• Half day visit to Shotley Marina and The Shipwreck which is situated at the meeting point of the Rivers Stour and Orwell. Enjoy a mid morning coffee/tea and the magnificent views of container ships, ferries and majestic cruise ships as they sail from Felixstowe and Harwich. We then return to Ipswich for an afternoon at leisure; indulge in a spot of retail therapy, visit the Wolsey Art
Gallery (which houses the most significant collection of Constable paintings outside London) or perhaps just enjoy a stroll along the café lined waterfront.
• Full day tour via Woodbridge to the coastal town of Aldeburgh with its charming sea front and fish and chip shop (frequently labelled the best in the world!) After free time here we continue on to the charming resort of Southwold with its long pier and beach hut-lined promenade.

Friday 2nd November
Departing Ipswich after breakfast, we return via an extended lunch/sightseeing break in Ely (approximately 2 hours), so home to Newark for teatime.
