We make the journey to our hotel with a stop and free time in the city of Cambridge, the famous university city lying on the river Cam.


Day Two

This morning we visit the breathtaking Beth Chatto Gardens created by ten times Chelsea Gold Medal winner, Beth Chatto. During the Gardeners Tour we are given an in-depth insight into the philosophy and history of Beth Chatto and her gardens. We spend the rest of the day in Colchester, the oldest recorded town in the country. From a Roman Temple, Norman Castle and medieval timber framed houses to Victorian architectural splendour, there is plenty for us to explore at our leisure.

Day Three

After breakfast we travel to the delightful medieval market town of Saffron Walden. A market has been held here since 1141 and we visit on market day. Don't miss the beautiful Bridge End Garden, a restored Victorian garden with a wonderful yew hedge maze and sunken Dutch Garden. We then make our way to Audley End House & Gardens. Built in the 1600s and lived in until 1948, this Jacobean mansion has been re-dressed to evoke its Victorian heyday both above and below stairs. There are also stunning 'Capability' Brown landscaped gardens and horses to visit in the working stable block.

In the early afternoon, we make our way to Tiptree which is famous for its delicious preserves.
