DURING YOUR STAY

Day 1 – Our first stop today is Bury St Edmunds, an historic jewel in Suffolk’s crown. The city’s most famous landmarks include the impressive abbey ruins and their adjoining gardens. Once a great monastery, the abbey was built around a shrine to Saint Edmund. St Edmundsbury Cathedral and The Angel Hotel, a Georgian coaching inn frequently visited by Charles Dickens. Apparently, his favourite four-poster is still in use today!

Day 2 – After breakfast we visit the magnificent Waddesdon Manor, managed by the Rothschild Foundation, on behalf of the National Trust. It was originally built in the 1870’s in the style of a French Renaissance chateau for Baron Ferdinand de Rothschild, to house his superb collection of art treasures and entertain his fashionable guests! Explore the Victorian style gardens, one of the finest in Britain as they begin to burst into blossoming works of art. Gaze at the flamboyant colours and discover the rare and exotic birds housed in the rococo style Aviary, which you can find in the heart of the gardens. Later, we return home.
