ItineraryItineraryDay 1 Morning departure for the journey to Lincolnshire and the hotel for a four night stay.
Day 2 Today you will visit the historic city of Lincoln with its magnificent Cathedral and Norman Castle. First you will meet your guide for a familiarisation tour of the city on the coach. You will then have time to get some lunch and look around this fascinating city. The old town is a labyrinth of little alleyways and interesting shops to explore and there are plenty of tea rooms. Before the day is over, you will have a 1-hour guided canal cruise taking in the sights of Lincoln and the surrounding countryside, whilst enjoying a cream tea.
Day 3 Today you will spend the day at Grimsthorpe Castle, Park and Estate. On arrival you will enjoy tea/coffee and biscuits before partaking in a one-hour guided coach tour of Grimsthorpe Park. Returning for an included lunch before a private guided tour of the Castle and see many magnificent state rooms (access to and from rooms on first floor is by two flights of stairs). Once the tour is over you will have time to explore the gardens and visit the tea rooms for afternoon refreshments.
Day 4 This morning you will travel to the attractive and bustling market town of Sleaford, located on the River Slea and Sleaford Canal, whose skyline is dominated by the 144-foot stone spire of St Denys’ Church. Sleaford is home to the nationally acclaimed National Centre for Craft and Design which you may like to visit. Time for lunch before travelling to the Lincolnshire Aviation Heritage Centre, a living memorial to those of Bomber Command, where you will experience the atmosphere of a WW2 bomber airfield and well worth a visit.
