CAMBRIDGE & THE BLETCHLEY CIRCLE

The beautiful city of Cambridge set on the pretty River Cam originally dates back to Roman times and is an inspiring destination due to its beautiful museums, art galleries and majestic college buildings. The contrasting history of nearby Bletchley Park and RAF Duxford is no less fascinating but very different. Both have played important roles in Britain’s history and we take time to learn of their fascinating story.

The four star standard Novotel Stevenage sits within the grounds of Knebworth House and has recently been refurbished to a high standard. Bedrooms are well appointed with excellent facilities and there is free wifi throughout.

Itinerary

Sunday We travel from Cornwall to Hertfordshire enjoying a lunch break along the way. We settle in to our hotel before dinner.

Monday The beautiful city of Cambridge is not only home to the famous university but also more than its fair share of galleries and museums. There will be time to admire the beautiful architecture explore quaint passages set around the historic market place and cathedral. Later in the day we visit the medieval town of St Neots.

Tuesday We begin our day with a visit to historic St Albans before moving on to Bletchley Park, home of the secret WW2 Enigma decoding machine, and also the birthplace of the modern computer. The ornate Victorian mansion was once the headquarters of British Intelligence and now shares stories of spies and strategic deception.         

Wednesday The Imperial War Museum at Duxford will be our destination today. This historic airfield is a museum of British aviation history and we discover the stories of people who lived and worked at the RAF base. We have a break for afternoon tea in the pretty town of Saffron Waldon.

Thursday After breakfast we leave Stevenage and have a visit to the town of Windsor before making our way home to Cornwall.
