Day 1

The holiday starts with a pickup from home by one of the vehicles from our Door-to-Door service and this will bring you through to our coach. We make our way to Cambridge where we'll stop for a couple of hours. We'll leave late afternoon to make the short journey to our hotel allowing you plenty of time to relax or enjoy the leisure facilities before dinner.

Day 2

Our excursion today takes us to The National Stud, the showcase for British Thoroughbred breeding. Comprising over 500 acres of prime pastureland on the edge of Newmarket, our 90-minute tour will be taken on foot and on the coach. We will be given an introduction into the history and purpose of The National Stud as a commercial thoroughbred breeding operation. After our tour, we'll take the short journey to the market town of Newmarket where we'll stop for a couple of hours giving you the chance to explore this unique and historic town with its various wonderful quirks such as horse walks, horse traffic lights and horse training ground that runs right into the town centre.

Day 3

Discover the once top-secret world of iconic Codebreaking Huts and Blocks, set within an atmospheric day at Bletchley Park.

Day 4

After a leisurely breakfast we make our way to Anglesey Abbey, the former run-down priory that was transformed by the future Lord Fairhaven into a home from where his guests enjoyed 1930s luxury. The beautiful furniture, clocks, silverwares books and paintings can all be seen at the Abbey today. He created extensive landscaped gardens and planted them for all seasons so they can be enjoyed throughout the year.

Day 5

Sadly, it's time to return home today and we leave the hotel after breakfast and make our way to the historic city of Ely with its wide choice of cafes and shops and famous for its Cathedral. We'll leave late afternoon to aim to arrive at the drop off point early evening where one of our Door-to-Door vehicles will be waiting to take you home.
