Cambridge, Bletchley Park & The Imperial War Museum 2023
5 Days | Half Board | by Coach
Highlights: Duxford Imperial War Museum, Guided tour of Cambridge, Guided tour of Bletchley Park
Step back in time and discover the secretive world of the famous wartime code-breakers, and their role in the air attacks during World War II. We visit Bletchley Park, at the forefront of Britain’s code-breaking efforts and birthplace of the modern computer, and visit the award-winning Imperial War Museum Duxford - a wonderful collection of aircraft through the ages. There’s also time to explore the historic university city of Cambridge with its ancient colleges, cobbled streets and punting on the pretty River Cam.
PLEASE NOTE: Price is per person and based on two people sharing a twin/double room. Single room supplements and upgrades are not included.
FULL DAY: Today we take a leisurely drive to nearby Duxford and a visit to the Imperial War Museum. This famous former WWI & WWII airfield has been transformed over the years and now includes some of the most iconic aircraft in the world. Exhibits include the legendary Spitfire and Lancaster, the fastest-ever Concorde, and the American B52 Bomber - plus hundreds of other aircraft and artefacts that tell the story of aviation development over the past 100 years.
FULL DAY: A fascinating day in store as we head for Bletchley Park, the top secret code-breaking centre that was set up at the beginning of WWII. It provided vital information to the allied forces during the entire war and proved instrumental in the success of the D-Day Landings of 70 years ago. We have included a guided walking tour that explores several of the more ‘famous’ huts and buildings as your local expert explains how it all worked.
FULL DAY: Today we visit Cambridge, the ancient city of learning, with its many famous past scholars that helped shape the world we live in today. We include a guided walking tour this morning before allowing plenty of time to explore the many museums and art galleries, wander around the majestic college buildings, or take a ‘punt’ on the River Cam.
