For 2019 we have included a tour which is a little closer to home, in and around the university city of Cambridge. We include a city tour in Cambridge and a Dad’s Army Experience Day in the charming town of Thetford including the unique Bressingham Steam and Gardens.
After many requests, this holiday has a short journey to our destination: Cambridge. After a leisurely scenic drive, we will arrive at the hotel in the mid-afternoon.
Enjoy a morning panoramic coach guided tour of the famous university city of Cambridge, before exploring the historic centre, the renowned Fitzwilliam Museum or maybe take a leisurely punt along the River Cam. Admire the wonderful architecture and majestic college buildings, and explore the quaint passages set around the historic market place.
Enjoy a Dad’s Army Experience Day in and around the charming town of Thetford, where the famous BB TV series was filmed. Enjoy an entertaining walking tour looking at many of the filming locations and visit the Dad’s Army Museum, before continuing to Bressingham Steam & Gardens, a unique day out with steam engines, narrow gauge trains, wonderful gardens and the official Dad’s Army Collection.
Sadly we travel home today, making a stop enroute to arrive home in the late afternoon.
