Lincolnshire Legends 2018

Lincolnshire has long been home to heroes of the RAF and our new Packaged Itinerary includes a day dedicated to discovering the history of the brave men and women of the RAF and seeing how the historic military aircraft of the RAF are maintained today. With a visit to Lincoln Castle, Lincoln Cathedral and Gainsborough Old Hall, we’ve got all bases covered!

Jo says: “The Forest Pines is a smart, modern hotel with a relaxing feel offering very comfortable rooms, good food and excellent leisure facilities. The lovely bar area is perfect for a leisurely drink in the evening”
