A popular tour in our programme for two decades. With morning coffee and lunch included at a great country pub, a coach tour of the little known Essex Highlands in the Hundred of Uttlesford and time for tea and a wander in beautiful Saffron Walden, this is the stuff that great days out are made of.

Aim to arrive in Arkesden at 10.30am for morning refreshments ready for our morning coach tour that will forever dispel the notion of Essex as a flat county. Back in Arkesden we enjoy a tasty steak pie lunch. Pre-booked vegetarian and gluten free options are available and on the day you can choose and pay for a desserts from the sweet trolley if desired. After lunch there's time to wander over to see the brightly painted effigies in the old church.

In the afternoon we drive past stately Audley End on our way to Saffron Walden named for the saffron crocus once grown in the surrounding fields. You can join the Guide for a gentle town trail before finishing a spot to settle for tea. We'll be heading home at 4.30pm.

This day also works well with a midday start for lunch followed by a wander to see the memorials in the village church and stretch the legs after lunch followed by the full and unabridged Essex Highlands coach tour arriving in Saffron Walden for a town trail and time to buy tea or drinks before heading home at 6.00pm.
