We meet our guide at the charming village of Long Melford in Suffolk, famous for its association with Lovejoy. It is said that if you only have one day to spend in Suffolk the visit Long Melford. With its wealth of timber framed buildings we are sure you will enjoy your visit here. Morning coffee/tea and biscuits are included at the Bull Hotel, which is itself an historic building dating back from the 15th Century. We continue our journey into Essex to visit Colchester, the oldest recorded town in the country. Colchester was the first Roman Capital and has a fascinating history. On arrival in Colchester our qualified tour guide will offer a short optional guided walk through the Castle Park and historic Dutch Quarter to hear tales of the Romans, Witchfinder General, a 17th Century Siege amongst other stories, before enjoying free time. You may wish to visit the Norman castle or just savour the range of shops in the town centre. After our lunch break we will rejoin the coach for a scenic drive through the Essex countryside to reach Tiptree Jam Museum and Shop where we have an included cream tea. Whilst here you can visit the museum to hear about the background of this famous jam making company, Wilkin & sons, and perhaps even take the time to purchase some of the products in their extensive shop before we depart for home.
