Itinerary

Sunday We make our way to Cambridge and arrive at our hotel to a welcome hot drink.

Monday Our day begins in Newmarket – home of horseracing. Here we visit the National Horseracing Centre and learn about the history of ‘The Sport of Kings’. Later we have time in the historic city of Ely. While away time in the array of medieval buildings and narrow streets or visit the magnificent cathedral, known as ‘The Ship of the Fens’. 

Tuesday This morning we journey to Cambridge for a day in this beautiful university city. We begin with a guided walk, in the city which perhaps displays the interplay between science, faith, and intellectual progress better than anywhere else in the world. There will then be time to explore the city independently. 

Wednesday After a leisurely breakfast, we travel south to visit the Roman city of St Albans. At its historic core, is the stunning cathedral – dating back to 1077. The ancient market will also be taking place along St Peters Street and is a tradition dating back to the 9th century. In the afternoon we get up close to over 85 aircraft at the excellent RAF Museum in Hendon.

Thursday After breakfast, we leave our hotel and make the homeward journey.
