Best driving route Heathrow to Lavenham (Essex country :-)

Jump to last reply

Recommendations sought for which way you'd drive
arriving at 2pm into Heathrow on a weekday.

Prob won't have rental car 'til 3pm at the earliest.

Could use ideas of how to best navigate ourselves to Lavenham for a stay.
Open to stopping en route in Bury St Edmunds to explore the abbey ruins
as that's the only thing that might be open by the time we reach that area.
(if coming through there makes sense)

I think we'll postpone Cambridge probably in lieu of a future trip by train.
(and I believe Evensong not taking place this time of year?)

Am also open to making a brief stop somewhere fun & interesting
*between* Heathrow & that Suffolk/Essex area...
if you happen to think of a nice spot along the route you're considering. :-)

Or is there simply a *drive* that may be a bit more scenic or off-the-beaten
path...avoiding rush hour traffic jams, perhaps?

Appreciate any & all ideas! Castle ruins en route would be fine, too. :-)
(ok...sort of kidding, but if there *are* any...please DO share...
or beautiful gardens, etc.!)

Thanks again!
