PACKAGED ITINERARY
Day 1 Arrival
We arrive at our hotel in time for dinner.

Day 2 Duxford & Cambridge
Our destination this morning is the Imperial War Museum Duxford, Britain’s best preserved WW2 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.

Day 3 Rockingham Castle
Today, we enjoy a fascinating private guided tour of Rockingham Castle, a castle with the rare status of having been continuously occupied for nearly 1,000 years and by just one family since being relinquished as a royal castle. On arrival we enjoy tea and coffee, followed by our tour, with time afterwards to explore the gardens, grounds, church and ice
house at leisure.

Day 4 Bletchley Park
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 WW2 vehicles) and a series of fascinating interactive exhibits before enjoying lunch (not included) in Hut 4 (formerly home to WW2 Naval Intelligence Code Breaking Operations).

Day 5 Departure
After breakfast, we make our way home.
