Constable Country & Lavenham

Constable Country & Lavenham

Departing Norfolk - Constable Country is now known as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and immortalised in Constable’s famous paintings.

How many other artists have had an area of the country named after them?  “I should paint my own places best” John Constable said and we are sure you will be as inspired as he was.  This is an opportunity to visit the places associated with our famous painter.

 

Our tour will include visits to East Bergholt, Dedham and Flatford.  At Flatford your Guide will lead you on a short walk to see the scenes of four of Constable’s paintings including the Haywain site.

 

After visiting Constable Country we will travel through scenic Suffolk villages before arriving at Lavenham which is often described as the ‘finest Medieval Town in England’.  For a short while Constable went to school in Lavenham and our visit will give you a chance to see this beautiful place with its wealth of timber framed buildings.
