Day Trips to Suffolk

10/08/2017 09:31:13

Think of Suffolk landscapes and you might imagine quintessentially English seaside resorts with unspoilt backdrops of Georgian town houses and fishermen’s cottages. For a change of scenery, why not explore one of the most idyllic areas in England with us for a hassle-free day trip?

Southwold
The allure of this fashionable resort is testament to its famous pier, upmarket independent shops, lighthouse and gorgeous Blue Flag beach decked out with brightly coloured beach huts. Adorned with traditionally English pastimes – from reputable tea rooms and cafés, to cosy pubs and a bowling green, plus an array of designer label shops to quirky stores – it’s the perfect place to simply while the hours away.

Aldeburgh
You might think Southwold takes the spotlight – but discover Aldeburgh and you’ll also find a pretty seaside town brimming with culture. Pastel-coloured cottages and Edwardian villas all sit within an area of natural beauty providing an ambient landscape. Browse the high street where there are clothes boutiques, antiques and arts, an independent book shop and more. Top places to visit include Aldeburgh fish and chip shop, considered by some as the best on the East coast – and or simply relax and enjoy the pebble beach.

Woods Tours have a day trip to Southwold on Sunday 20th August or Aldeburgh on Monday 21st August 2017.

This year marks 20 years since the death of Diana, Princess of Wales – and you could join us as we take a visit to the home of the Spencer family for over 500 years. The magnificent estate and stunning house offers a fascinating day out for those interested in history, heritage and art, with our day trip including entry to the grounds, including the poignant Round Oval Lake, the current exhibitions and a guided tour of the state rooms of the house.

Situated in Northampton, be encapsulated by the remote setting and the exterior of the House which will be showcased in all its splendour. Step inside and enjoy a guided tour, which will reveal Europe’s finest private collections of furniture, pictures and ceramics; each room will delight with a fascinating story of its own.

Maybe pause for a moment of reflection at the Round Oval, where Diana, Princess of Wales was laid to rest. Since last year it has been undergoing a multi-million pound renovation to honour her memory, to be completed in time for the 20th anniversary of her death in August 2017.

Woods Tours have a day trip to Althorp on Sunday 17th September 2017. Please click here for more information or to make a booking.

Annie the Musical – Thursday 7th September

Based on the comic strip Little Orphan Annie set in 1930’s New York, the musical charts the journey of Annie as she transforms from forgotten orphan to daughter of a billionaire. 

The much-loved musical has charm to delight any audience young and old, featuring a famous score of songs including the unforgettable It’s The Hard-Knock Life and Tomorrow. Our day trip includes a top price rear stalls ticket for the matinee performance. 

Please note: any alteration to cast members on the day is beyond our control.

An American in Paris – Wednesday 13th September
A breath-taking Broadway musical about love, hope and living your dreams, winner of four Tony Awards, and featuring some of the greatest music and lyrics ever written. It opened to a record-setting 28 five-star rave reviews from the critics! 

The elegant musical tells the story of a young American GI pursuing his dream to make it as a painter in the aftermath of war. Following a chance encounter with young dancer Lise, the streets of Paris become the backdrop to a modern romance of art, friendship and love. Our day trip includes a top price stalls ticket for the matinee performance.
