On this break, we bring the ‘Antiques Roadshow’ to you! If you have an eye for genuine antiques or just fancy having a go then this is the perfect break for you. Staying at The Mill Hotel, a popular amongst Laver passengers, we have arranged an antiques day with a £15pp to spend, a leisurely lunch in Halstead and an evaluation of your purchases in the comfort of the hotel as well as excursions to Cambridge, Bury St Edmonds, admission into the National Trust’s Sutton Hoo and a river cruise along the Deben river.
DURING YOUR STAY
Day 1 – We travel to our hotel via Cambridge. This city is not only famous for its university but also its beautiful architecture and quaint setting.
Day 2 – Today we take you to Gosfield Shopping Village where you will be given £15 to spend on an antique of your choice, choose wisely though because this afternoon your purchases will be valued by a professional back at the hotel. You will also enjoy a nice leisurely lunch in Halstead.
Day 3 – Enjoy a morning at leisure followed by an excursion in the afternoon to Bury St Edmunds. This historic market town has a rich and fascinating history, including the Abbey which was once one of the richest and most powerful Benedictine monasteries in England.
Day 4 – First we visit the National Trust’s Sutton Hoo, the awe-inspiring Anglo-Saxon royal burial site. Walk around the ancient burial mounds and discover the fascinating story of the ship burial of an Anglo-Saxon king and his treasure possessions. This afternoon we take a scenic river cruise along the river Deben where you can take in all of the stunning scenery along areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
Day 5 – We make our way back home after a wonderful trip.
