The greenest East Anglian fields dotted with poppy-reds; the biggest, bluest skies speckled with flocking birds. Time-honoured footpaths and little lanes; pilgrim paths and ancient trading routes. Mighty flint churches, fine with flushwork and wrought-iron kissing gates. Maltings and mills. Market towns, pubs and pastel-washed cottages. Castles fit for kings; comfortable country inns offering walkers a special welcome; just gentle inclines as your inclination takes you.
Coastline stretches of golden sand or shingle; dunes and craggy cliff; sea lavender and samphire. River Stour meanders in Constable and Gainsborough’s picturesque homelands. The winding creeks of Nelson’s childhood sailing grounds. Haunting salt marshes; refined seaside resorts. Cromer crabs. Field-fresh asparagus. Oysters from the Orford smokehouse. A well-deserved pint of Adnams in its Southwold home. Every walk, a different feast of local flavours.
Half-timbered coaching inns, complete with a snug and roaring log fire. A converted flint-faced barn or smartly relaxed hotel by the sea. A pantiled pub gone warmly provençal. Places cherished by locals and visitors alike, where locally sourced food takes pride of place on the menu.

Our UK walking tours are designed to be accessible by rail with a short local taxi transfer. We can help organise that, or if you do come by car, sort you out with free parking for the duration of your stay.
