ItineraryItinerary Day 1 Morning departure for the journey into Lincolnshire and to Grantham for a four night stay.
Day 2 A day excursion to the city of Cambridge. The city has inspired academics, philosophers, historians and economists throughout history, from John Milton to Charles Darwin and Stephen Hawking. Let it inspire you too, with its grand college buildings, medieval churches, museums, galleries, gardens and parks, and punting on the Cam along The Backs.
Day 3 This morning you will have free time in Grantham, the birthplace of Britain’s first female Prime Minister, Margaret Thatcher and Sir Isaac Newton. In the afternoon you will visit Belton House, a Carolean style country house dating from the 1600s, surrounded by exquisite gardens with views and an ancient deer park. The house has an extensive range of ornate art collections, oriental ceramics and books highlighting the continued wealth and cultured tastes of its former owners, the Brownlow family.
Day 4 Today you will visit Lincoln with its magnificent Cathedral and Norman Castle. First you will be taken on a familiarisation tour of the city on the coach and then you will have free time to explore the old town with its little alleyways and interesting shops.
Day 5 After breakfast, depart the hotel and commence the homeward journey.
