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 a medieval timber framed houses to Victorian architectural splendour, there is plenty for us to explore at our leisure.

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.

This morning, we will enjoy a half day ‘step-on’ guided tour of Constable Country, which will include Dedham Vale, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the area where John Constable lived and created most of his paintings, the chocolate-box village of Lavenham, known as England’s finest medieval village, and Sudbury, birthplace of Thomas Gainsborough. In the early afternoon, we make our way to Tiptree which is famous for its delicious preserves. Once there, we will enjoy time in the Visitor Centre (free entry) where we learn more about the history of the village and the making of different preserves
