This tour is now fully booked but please contact Hazel (below) if you wish to be placed on a cancellation list.

We will be breaking our journey near Colchester, at the Tiptree Tearooms and Museum. There you will be able to buy refreshments and browse their heritage museum and shop. Then it is on to Ipswich, the oldest town in England dating from the seventh century and birthplace of Thomas Wolsey. Throughout the town there are medieval churches, wonky Tudor houses and grand Victorian buildings. After lunch at 2.30 pm we will be joining our guide Erica, who will make sure we get the most from our visit. She will end the tour at Christchurch Mansion, which is free to enter and has a wealth of art and history, with a lovely park surrounding it.
