Our Upcoming  Tour: Discovering East Anglia
September  2 - 11, 2015

East Anglia is the bulge of England slightly north west of London. You will see this area of outstanding beauty, the Fens, fields of poppies and pretty English villages that were inspirational to John Constable to name but one artist.

The seaside town of Aldeburgh in Suffolk is a great base. How about an early morning walk along the beach? I am suggesting that we take a cooking class at the Aldeburgh school of cooking.

I know that you will love the inns of great character that I have searched out, with, as ever, an emphasis on good food and fine service.

Amongst other gems we will visit Queen Elizabeth 1st very stately palace of Hatfield and Elizabeth 2nd Christmas home at Sandringham.

I have some special private gardens in mind for us to visit, especially that of
Beth Chatto. Beth is known for her love of gardening and profound knowledge of
plantings. She consequetively won 10 gold medals at Chelsea flower show for
her ‘unusual plants’. Her first book was ‘The Dry Garden’, surely there is a book
from which we could learn.

It would be hard to give some of you enough time to fully explore the village of
Burnham Market. It has every small artisan shop that you could dream of! I shall
make sure that you have the time to shop for antiques. See the pictures.

Our final day we will spend in the University Town of Cambridge. You may walk around the town at leisure or come visit the famous Botanical Gardens with me. At 5.30pm we will attend Evensong in the famous Kings College Chapel.

What better grand finale to another happy time spent with Curious Travelers!
Return on afternoon flight from Heathrow.

FABULOUS FOUR AND FIVE DAY TOURS OF EUROPE

In the interest of offering you more choices for shorter tours of spectacular gardens in the UK, Ireland, France and Italy, I have joined forces with Boxwood Tours.  This gives you the opportunity to add one or two of their tours to your Itinerary when visiting Europe.  Sue MacDonald of Boxwood is a Kew-trained gardener.  She and I demand similar high standards of the gardens we visit, charming hotels for your comfort--always with great food--, and the opportunity to meet and share a cup of tea with the people who own the gardens.  Altogether a great opportunity to enlarge your travel experience.

When you visit their website, book a tour or ask for information, be sure to mention The Curious Traveler. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions. Choose your tour destination below for more information.



ABOUT OUR TOURS

If you like to travel at a leisurely pace that allows you time to contemplate and enjoy your surroundings then our exclusive tours are for you.  We travel in a small group of about a dozen guests.  We travel by private mini coach and use the same vehicle and driver, Keith, for the duration of the tour enabling guests to settle in and be comfortable while Keith takes care of your comfort and safety.

Our tours are designed to give you a deeper appreciation of life in Britain.  We offer you the opportunity to meet a variety of local people with whom you share interests in common such as horticulture, golf, majestic castl
es, stately homes and a love of food and wine.

The hotels we patronize are all exceedingly comfortable with a distinctly British flavour.  Each hotel is personally selected by Andria and offers friendly and efficient service, all creature comforts and, above all, excellent restaurants.

It is our objective that your trip proves memorable and serves as a time filled with new experiences and laughter.  We want you to return completely relaxed with a true feeling for the history of the country you have visited and with new friends with whom you share interests in common.


Our new
Custom Tour service invites you to ask Andria to take you on private tours tailored to your own special dates, requests and wish lists.  Find out more about these special trips.
