Suffolk holiday, walking and gastronomy tour

Accommodation, gastronomic meals and drinks and transport are all included. Suffolk epitomises picture-postcard England with its thatched villages and coloured houses, clambering, pink roses and wide horizons painted by Constable and Gainsborough. We wander through the lush countryside, through kissing gates and over styles to pause for lunch in a pub with a pint of bitter or a glass of English wine. Stunning churches conjure up the wealth of the wool-trade era as do the half-timbered, crooked houses that of its weavers. A week's walk for the pleasure of the countryside but also for those wishing to step back in time and realise that olde England lives on. Read more >
