In years gone by images of Suffolk village greens, thatched cottages and medieval churches have adorned the lids of many a chocolate box. This morning you meet your tour guide at Long Melford, in the heart of Suffolk, where morning coffee (included) is enjoyed at the 15th Century Bull Hotel. This traditional Post Inn was originally a merchant’s house in 1490 and famous guests have included John Lennon and Ian McShane who used the hotel as a base when filming the TV programmes Lovejoy in the area. Re-joining the coach we head off into the scenic Suffolk countryside for a tour of ‘Chocolate Box’ villages with medieval churches and quaint thatched cottages. On our tour we take in the picturesque villages of Boxford, Lavenham, Monks Eleigh, Chelsworth and Newton. Your guide will tell you a little about the history of these villages as you pass through. We arrive back in Long Melford in time for lunch (not included). This afternoon we pass through the chocolate box villages of Cavendish and Clare, crossing the border into Essex and arriving at the wonderfully named village of Steeple Bumpstead. Here we meet the Chocolate Lady who has been creating delicious delights for over 28 years and is a regular on local radio and television. You will have a demonstration of chocolate making before enjoying a cream tea (included). There will also be an opportunity to purchase a momento of your visit. After our visit we head for home via Long Melford where you say goodbye to your guide. A tour for all those chocoholics that should not be missed!
