Lincolnshires Aviation History - 5 Days

Lincolnshires Aviation History - 5 Days


New International Bomber Command Centre, RAF Scampton, Lincolnshire Aviation Centre, Barnsdale Gardens, Rutland Water


Monday Day 1: Our pick ups complete we travel with a comfort break to Ashbourne for lunch. This thriving picturesque market town on the edge of The Peak District is rich in history. We complete our journey to our home for the next four nights, the 3* Ramada Resort Hotel, Grantham, where tea/coffee and biscuits await you whilst your cases are taken to your rooms.

Tuesday Day 2: The New International Bomber Command Centre (opened in 2018) is a world-class facility to serve as a point for recognition, remembrance and reconciliation for Bomber Command. Providing the most comprehensive record of the Command in the world, the IBCC ensures that generations to come can learn of their vital role in protecting the freedom we enjoy today The Walls of Names at the IBCC carry the names of almost 58,000 men and women who lost their lives whilst serving Bomber Command. The 31-metre Memorial Spire is the UK's tallest memorial. The remainder of the day is spent in Lincoln.

 

Wednesday Day 3: RAF Scampton is home to the Red Arrows and the base of 617 Squadron, the 'Dambusters'. We visit the Heritage Centre that tells the remarkable story of Squadron Leader Guy Gibson. There's also an opportunity to sit in a replica Red Arrows Hawk aircraft. We arrive at the Lincolnshire Aviation Heritage Centre, in time for lunch. This family run museum was set up over 20 years ago, and is now considered to be a living memorial to the  men of Bomber Command who lost their lives during WW2.  It holds one of the rarest aircraft, an Avro Lancaster Bomber “Just Jane” in its collection along with wartime vehicles.

 

Thursday Day 4: This morning we visit Barnsdale Gardens, home to 38 individual gardens. As a natural in front of the camera, Geoff Hamilton soon won a permanent place at Gardeners' World and in 1979 he joined the team. Filming from the original site was a huge success, however, Geoff found that there was little room to experiment and so he began to look for a suitable alternative. In 1983, he found it. Just one mile away, a Victorian farmhouse with over 5 acres of land - 'Barnsdale' was born!  Leaving after lunch we travel to Rutland Water, a drinking water reservoir in the county of Rutland,  east of the county town, Oakham. It was known as Empingham Reservoir during its construction and until its official opening in 1976. Enjoy the wildlife on the Water from the “Rutland Belle” on your one hour cruise.

Friday Day 5: We make or way to Derby. Explore the city of Derby, with 3 free museums, a World Heritage Site, Royal Crown Derby - the oldest surviving manufacturer of English bone china, brand new arts and media centre and a cathedral housing the oldest ring of 10 bells in the world - as well as a nest full of peregrine falcons - Derby has something for everyone. We leave mid-afternoon and complete our journey back home to Mid-Wales.

  Just a short note to thank you for a wonderful tour of the Majestic Scottish Highlands. Two words - Magnificent and Dramatic. A big thank you for driving us safely and making the travelling comfortable as well as amusing and interesting. Thank you for acquiring good rooms of our choice in the 3 lovely hotels. It means a lot!  
 
Mr & Mrs Mills
 
  We wanted to thank you for a really great holiday to Northumberland. The coach was very comfortable and brilliantly driven. Dave was a great courier, entertaining us on route. The hotel was very good and in a great location. The days out were informative and the countryside beautiful. It was our first trip with you and we hope it will not be the last.  
 
Jen & Pete
 
  Just felt we had to let you know what a wonderful holiday we had on the Danube Cruise. We enjoyed it very much, everything was nice and so very well organised.  
 
McGauley
