Explore the fragile and fascinating Suffolk Coast with visits to Southwold and Aldeburgh and enjoy a fish & chip lunch at the famous Flora Tea Rooms on Dunwich beach. Meet the Blue Badge Tour Guide at 10.30am in Woodbridge, off the A12 just above Ipswich, to purchase morning coffee.

Suitably refreshed we head straight for the sea. We pass through Orford, an attractive village with a castle and traditional smokery and Snape with its famous Maltings. In the seaside town of Aldeburgh the Moot Hall, once in the centre of the town, now teeters on the water’s edge. We stop here to enjoy the timeless maritime air, see where the fishermen still sell their catch on the beach and marvel at the controversial Maggi Hambling scallop sculpture.

On to Dunwich for lunch. The town has already been claimed by the sea but the brilliant Flora Tea Rooms survive. This is an exemplary example of that very British tradition of a famously good fish & chip lunch. Indeed be sure not to have too big a breakfast because in addition to a choice of fish served with chips there’s a slice of bread plus a dessert and a cup of tea or coffee, all included in the tour fee.

In the afternoon we continue along the coast. Thorpeness is an eccentric puzzle of mock Tudor houses and the quirky “House in the Clouds”. We are heading to the elegant little Edwardian resort town of Southwold. Old cottages of great charm cluster around the gleaming white lighthouse and candy coloured beach huts line the shore. Join the guide to explore possibly the finest mediaeval church in England - the home of “Southwold Jack”.

 The day draws to its relaxing conclusion with free time to enjoy the ambience of this jolly seaside town and pick a spot for tea before heading for home at 4.45pm but there’s nothing to stop you adding an hour to your time here if you want.
