Itinerary

Description

Thanks to its lovely bay, traditional seafront attractions and pleasant atmosphere, the bracing resort of Skegness is the epitome of the British seaside holiday. From here, we explore the fine cathedral city of Lincoln and the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight Visitor Centre; a wonderful opportunity to see the flight’s historic aircraft at close quarters.

Coach Itinerary

Lincoln (full day)
Rising out of the flat Fenlands with one of England’s finest cathedrals as its crown, Lincoln is a compact city with a well-preserved medieval quarter full of quaint cobbled streets. We spend the day at leisure here with time to explore the pretty lanes and admire the beautiful buildings including Lincoln Castle, home to one of only four surviving copies of the Magna Carta.

Battle of Britain Memorial Flight Visitor Centre (half day)
We head to the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight Visitor Centre, located within the boundaries of RAF Coningsby and a living tribute to all the RAF aircrew and ground crew who gave their lives in the Second World War. Here we enjoy a guided tour of the RAF BBMF hangar where we can view the flight’s historic aircraft at close quarters including the Spitfire, Hurricane and Lancaster and observe the technicians working to maintain these iconic aircraft in airworthy condition.

Please note: The Battle of Britain Memorial Flight Visitor Centre and the RAF hangar are located within the boundaries of RAF Coningsby where you will enter a military environment. Therefore allbags are prohibited within the RAF BBMF hangar on guided tours. There are no secure storage facilities on site.


Optional Excursion
Boston Market & Springfields Festival Gardens - £10pp (full day)
On our optional excursion, we spend the morning browsing the stalls of Boston Market which takes over the town centre twice a week. Look out for regular auctions that take place, where you could pick up a real bargain!

We then head to Springfields Festival Gardens in Spalding which feature over 25 acres of themed and specialist gardens including a collection of showcase gardens created by celebrity names such as Charlie Dimmock and Kim Wilde. Other highlights include the Japanese Garden and lovely woodland walks as well as a Shopping Outlet with over 50 stores.
