Enchanting Constable Country is named after renowned artist John Constable and is so easy on the eye it’s little wonder the area has inspired many writers and painters. We make the most of our time in this stunning part of the country with a guided tour of the pretty villages that present a perfect blend of heritage and beauty. Other delights include a visit to sprawling Audley End House, set in Capability Brown landscaped parkland and where you will feel as though you have stepped into a period drama. We also dip our toes in the sand in wonderful Southend-on-Sea.
