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 World War II airfield. Its story reflects the landmark achievements made in aviation history and it incorporates a series of museums and exhibitions, including the 1940’s 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 (RAF Duxford’s pivotal role) and Land Warfare to name but a few. We spend the afternoon at leisure in Cambridge, with numerous attractions to explore.

Day 3 Burghley House
Today, we enjoy a day out at Burghley House, one of the largest and grandest Elizabethan treasure houses of England. We enjoy a guided tour of the house and its historical collections of important works of art, early tapestries, Japanese ceramics and sculptures, where many still stand when first recorded in 1688. Our tour will bring to life the intricate history of the Cecil family and the collection they have built over their 450 years at Burghley. With an orangery restaurant, gardens and beautiful walks around the parkland, there is plenty to enjoy.

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

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