We are delighted to be launching an exciting new four-day tour. The vibrant city of Cambridge is our destination, and everyone will find something that suits them here – shopping and architecture, cafes and restaurants, the colleges and art galleries – there is so much to see, do and experience. Follow in the footsteps of some of our greatest minds: poets, philosophers, scientists, medics, engineers, all have left their mark here. Our hotel is a particularly lovely one with spa facilities and a pool, which will be much enjoyed after a busy day exploring. These facilities are included, as our dinner, bed and breakfast. This promises to be a truly wonderful trip, and we cannot wait to welcome you on board!

Day 1:

This morning we head directly to Cambridge with comfort breaks as required. Today is a really special day out, as we are going to visit the Cambridge American Cemetery, the only American WW2 Cemetery in the UK. Not just a place where men and women are buried, but it also combines art, landscape and symbolism in a way rarely found in this country. Built on a gentle slope looking to the north of Cambridge it affords fine views over the countryside, including Ely Cathedral over seventeen miles away. The visitor centre here uses interpretive displays, photographs, film and interactive kiosks to chronicle the ‘friendly invasion’ by American personnel through the war years. It tells the stories of those commemorated in the cemetery, and staff are on hand to answer any questions. We then head the short distance to the hotel for our evening meal.

Day 2:

This morning we enjoy a leisurely breakfast before heading into the beautiful City of Cambridge for a full day of exploring, sightseeing and shopping. You could visit Cambridge University Botanic Garden, It’s the perfect spot for a picnic or a stroll and the attraction includes a lake, glasshouses, chronological bed, rock gardens and a collection of mature trees. Or sample the world famous Chelsea Buns at Fitzbillies. If you wish, you could avoid the city centre crowds and still see the sights by punting on the river. Also popular are King’s College Chapel, and the Fitzwilliam Museum

Day 3:

Today we will visit both Ely and Newmarket. Ely is steeped in history and is principally renowned for Ely Cathedral, a magnificent building with its unique Octagon Tower. Ely’s riverside is a favourite spot for those wishing to relax, take a boat trip, browse through shops and galleries, enjoy afternoon tea or simply watch the activity on the river. Next, Newmarket’s bustling town centre hosts an interesting collection of retail experiences; from familiar brands to various independent and unique family-run businesses, where you will find everything from famous sausages to antiques.
