Hyde Hall © Visit EssexDay 1 Morning departure for the journey to Colchester, stopping on the way at Tiptree. The home of Wilkin & Sons who produce those small pots of jam and condiments for hundreds of hotels and restaurants. Enjoy free time in the café, shop and museum before continuing to the hotel for a four night stay.

Day 2 Travel into Constable Country with a visit to Flatford Mill, the site of the artist’s most famous painting, The Haywain. Continue via Dedham into Colchester, claimed by many to be England’s oldest town, for an included visit to Colchester Castle where exhibits span 2000 years. Free time will be given to explore the town before returning to the hotel.

Day 3 Today you will visit the RHS Garden Hyde Hall, set in the heart of rural Essex with stunning panoramic views of the surrounding countryside. The gardens have a diverse mix of styles from traditional to modern and you will find something to delight and inspire at every turn.

Day 4 You will head to the coast and the historic maritime town of Harwich. Here you will board a boat for a fascinating 60 minute harbour tour to Felixstowe with a commentary all about the workings of the port and some historic anecdotes. Afterwards enjoy some free time in Harwich before returning to the hotel.

Day 5 After breakfast, depart the hotel and commence the homeward journey.
