Itinerary

Day 1: Join the coach and travel to Grantham where we will arrive at the Urban Grantham Hotel for dinner. Day 2: Breakfast, followed by a visit to the Lincolnshire Aviation Heritage Museum. The Heritage Centre is a family run museum and was set up over 20 years ago. It is now widely seen as a living memorial to the 55,500 men of Bomber Command who lost their lives during WW2. It holds one of the rarest aircrafts in the world, an Avro Lancaster Bomber. The museum is built up entirely around RAF Bomber Command but the exhibits and displays span many areas such as ‘The Home Front’ and ‘Escape and Evasion’ giving you a wide perspective of wartime in Britain. We return to the hotel via the Woodhall Spa one of Lincolnshire’s most attractive village’s, famous for being home to 617 Squadron (the Dambusters) during WW11. Dinner at the hotel this evening. Day 3: A leisurely breakfast and we join our coach for a visit to Lincoln where you will have free time to discover the city.

Alternatively visit the award winning Museum of Lincolnshire Life which reflects the culture and its people from 1750 to the present day. It also includes an interactive gallery of the Royal Lincolnshire Regiment. We will then make the short journey into beautiful rural Lincolnshire to Hemswell Antique Centres! Once part of RAF Hemswell - the home of the Lancaster Bomber during the Second World War - the centres now offer a wonderful mix of antiques and collectables from bygone times. Dinner this evening.
