HISTORIC LINCOLN

Singles Galore

The county of Lincoln has a fascinating history and has played a key role in Britain’s military history but the undoubted jewel in its crown is the city of Lincoln itself. We have time to discover the city and the magnificent castle built by William the Conqueror. We also explore the local area and pretty countryside.

The three star New Barn Hotel (formerly Ramada Resort) is a beautifully rustic hotel set in the idyllic countryside of Grantham. Rooms are well equipped and public rooms retain the charm and welcome feel of the old building. The hotel has a lift and indoor pool.

Itinerary

Sunday We depart Cornwall in the morning and travel to Grantham arriving in time to settle in before dinner.

Monday Our first place to visit today will be the town of Melton Mowbray. Famous for its pork pies and Stilton Cheese, the town is known as the ‘Rural Capital of Food’. There will be time to explore or follow the walking heritage trail before we continue our travels to the beautiful town of Stamford often referred to as “the finest stone town in England”. 

Tuesday Today we visit Lincoln, a city rich in history with fantastic attractions and unique boutiques. We have time to look around before an included visit to Lincoln Castle which is home to a Victorian prison and a copy of the Magna Carta.

Wednesday Our day is dedicated to aviation history and we begin with a stop for morning coffee in the village of Woodhall Spa, home to the Dambusters Memorial. There will be time for reflection before we continue to the Lincoln Aviation Heritage Centre. Based on a 1940’s RAF Lancaster Bomber airfield, you can see a Lancaster bomber, original control tower, welcoming NAAFI and an emotionally evocative Memorial Chapel.

Thursday After breakfast we make our way back to Cornwall arriving home during the evening.
