The backdrop of the quaint Suffolk villages have been famously brought to life by the Gainsborough and Constable landscapes and they provide the blend of heritage and scenery for this tour with the rolling countryside, babbling brooks and picturesque villages. On our Constable Country day we have the services of a local guide who will bring this region to life. We also include a visit to the HMS Ganges Museum and a day on the Suffolk Heritage Coast. All this combines to give a holiday of particular charm and nostalgia for you to enjoy.
