XKEC Suffolk Tour
This exclusive club tour invites you to discover one of England’s most beautiful and undiscovered counties, travelling its fascinating villages and byways in style and comfort. Often underrated, Suffolk is incredibly beautiful and the lack of constant tourists makes it a great destination for some peace and quiet.
You will pass through charming medieval towns and villages as well as visiting the world-famous Anglo-Saxon burial site of Sutton Hoo.
All this, in a four-day, three-night tour where the accent is always on luxury, fine food and good companionship.
Where you’ll be staying:
The delightful 4-star Hintlesham Hall Hotel is a wonderful base from which to explore Suffolk. The Hall is a fine, Grade I Listed building offering spacious reception rooms and beautiful bedrooms and suites. In-house facilities include an ironing and laundry service and a compact spa. The restaurant cuisine is excellent with locally sourced food and many seasonal ingredients coming from the hotel’s own well-stocked herb and vegetable garden.
What’s on offer:
The four-day tour takes in a variety of Suffolk villages, landscapes and coastal towns. Every run has been carefully planned so that every stop on the way will have been selected to maximise your motoring pleasure. We provide clear and easy-to-follow instructions allowing navigators to enjoy the day as much as the drivers.
Tour book: – said to be the most comprehensive such tour guide on offer – ensures that you never miss out on places of scenic or historical interest.
Tulip routes include visits to Sutton Hoo and the coastal towns of Southwold, Woodbridge, Thorpeness and Aldeburgh (famous for its annual festival celebrating the works of Benjamin Britten).
Suffolk Observational Photo Competition
This optional, light-hearted competition draws on the fact that Suffolk is renowned for its village signs (there over 375 of them in total). Tourers have to look for the various signs included in their tour book and identify the villages concerned. Each correctly identified sign scores a point and on the last evening, the scores are added up and the winners are awarded The Suffolk Spot-the-Sign Observation Trophy to take home and keep. Lots of good-natured fun and rivalry.
