On our second day trip we will visit Ipswich where amongst other things is the Christchurch Mansion a Tudor building which houses a collection of Suffolk Artists and the finest collection of Constables outside London. We will also visit Flatford Mill famous as the site of John Constable’s epic work ‘The Haywain’.
