Itinerary

Day 1 After being picked up from your door by taxi, you join our touring coach and we travel northwards, stopping in St Albans before continuing to our hotel in Marston. We have a welcome drink before dinner to meet your fellow guests.

Day 2 We drive to Lincoln where we have free time to explore and get some lunch. In the afternoon we visit Lincoln Cathedral and The Airmen's Chapel of St Michael, home to three Books of Remembrance containing the names of 25,611 men who flew from Lincoln RAF bases in the Second World War and never returned. The Cathedral was a sign on the horizon to crews returning to Lincolnshire RAF bases that they had made it home safely. After dinner there will be a quiz.

Day 3 After a leisurely breakfast, we travel to Woodhall Spa. We visit historic Petwood Hotel, which was used as a military hospital in WWI, and was home to the legendary 617 ‘Dambusters’ Squadron in WWII. We have included a guided tour and a light lunch. Our afternoon is spent at the International Bomber Command Centre, where our guided tour includes access to the Peace Gardens, the Memorial Spire and Walls of Names.

Day 4 This morning we visit magnificent Burghley House, home to the Cecil family and surrounded by spectacular ‘Capability Brown’ - designed parkland. Our afternoon is spent in the historic town of Stamford, one of the finest Georgian towns in England. Enjoy a game of bingo after dinner.
