Our day starts in Arkesden, ‘the gem of the Essex Highlands’ for included morning coffee and biscuits. We then set off with our Blue Badge Guide on an enjoyable guided tour through the ‘Essex Highlands’ to dispel the notion that Essex is flat. In fact, we slip in and out of three counties during our circular tour and from high in the coach you’ll get lovely views and there are interesting stories to create a thoroughly entertaining morning. Oh, how we’ve missed these country drives! Arriving back in Arkesden and our thatched pub we enjoy a tasty steak pie lunch at the pub (a vegetarian option is available – please state any dietary requirements at time of booking). Desserts are available to purchase if you have room! After lunch there’s time to join the guide for a little stroll and see the brightly painted effigies in the old church before we drive past stately Audley End House on our way to Saffron Walden, named from the saffron crocus once grown in the surrounding fields. You can opt to join our guide for a short town trail or browse on your own. Whichever you choose there’ll be time for a cuppa before heading home.
Price: £49.50 includes a scenic drive by luxury coach, morning refreshments, lunch, services of a guide and time in Saffron Walden.
