We take the journey down to our hotel with an extended stop in Lincoln for free time. Upon arrival at our hotel, we are welcomed with tea and coffee.
Our destination this morning is the Imperial War Museum Duxford, Britain’s best preserved WWII airfield. Its story reflects the landmark achievements made in aviation history and it incorporates a series of museums and exhibitions such as the 1940s Operations Room, AirSpace (featuring 30 iconic aircraft including the Spitfire and Concorde), The American Air Museum (with the largest collection of US historic military aircraft in Europe), The Battle of Britain Exhibition (and RAF Duxford’s pivotal role) and Land Warfare, to name but a few. We spend the afternoon at leisure in Cambridge, with a choice of famous attractions to explore.
This morning, we make our way to Bletchley Park where Alan Turing and his colleagues helped crack Germany’s Enigma Code during World War II. We uncover Bletchley Park’s remarkable story by visiting the unglamorous, functional Codebreaking Huts and Blocks, Alan Turing’s office, the Library, the wartime garages (complete with WWII vehicles) and a series of fascinating interactive exhibits before enjoying lunch (not included) in Hut 4 (formerly home to WWII Naval Intelligence Code Breaking Operations).
Enjoy a private guided tour of Rockingham Castle. On arrival we have tea and coffee, followed by our tour, with time afterwards to explore the gardens, grounds, church and icehouse at leisure.
On our final day, we enjoy a leisurely breakfast before travelling for free time in King’s Lynn. After lunch, we make our journey home.
