“A quiet trip on a river”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 May 2014

The River Stour Trust can provide a memorable trip along the River Stour in one of their electrically powered, and so silent, elegant craft. The river is part of the navigation that saw many craft operated by the Constable family, featured in many of John Constable's paintings. If you take a trip from Sudbury (public trips on Sundays and Bank Holidays), make sure you sample one of the home made cakes from the Trust's tearoom. There are similar trips available from Dedham and Flatford.
