Excursions as described


Day 1

We arrive in Colchester with plenty of time to relax before dinner.


Day 2

Our first visit is to Britain’s oldest recorded town, Colchester. History and modernity are presented here in equal measure, from the town’s Roman origins and its imposing castle, to contemporary structures. This afternoon we visit nearby Beth Chatto Gardens. From an overgrown wasteland with poor gravel soil and boggy hollows, the land has been transformed into one of the country’s most inspirational informal gardens.

Day 3

We travel to Gainsborough’s Sudbury for a stop before continuing to the RHS Garden Hyde Hall, which sits prominently on a hilltop with sweeping views across the rolling Essex countryside.

Day 4

We visit the beautiful market town of Saffron Walden today with its narrow streets and cosy tea rooms. In the afternoon, continue to Audley End House and Gardens, a stunning Jacobean stately home standing in magnificent grounds and pastoral parkland, and its previously unseen but spectacular stables.

Day 5

After breakfast, we retrace our steps back to the local area.
