Designed to impress, the house is set in an ancient deer park, with formal gardens, pleasure grounds, rolling Suffolk landscape and a beautiful Italianate garden. In the afternoon, we enjoy free time in Lavenham, the finest medieval village in England.

We enjoy a 90-minute guided tour before we have the chance to see former racehorses training in the flagship yard of Retraining of Horses. With the National Horse Racing Museum and British sporting art galleries also on site, there is plenty to enjoy. From here, we head to Newmarket where we enjoy free time for lunch before returning to Bury St Edmunds.


Our day begins with a visit to the Dad's Army Museum in Thetford (Walmington-on-Sea) where the series was filmed. We enjoy an entertaining and nostalgic 45-minute guided mini location tour of "Walmington-on-Sea", where we take in the many filming locations used, the bronze statue of Captain Mainwaring and Jones's butcher's van before ending with a visit to the museum which includes tea/coffee and biscuits in the Marigold Tea Room. Free time for lunch in Thetford before visiting Bressingham Steam & Gardens, where we have time to view the exhibitions and enjoy the unique gardens.


After breakfast, we begin our journey home.
