A relaxing break in Lincolshire

Famed for its bracing sea air, Skegness is a traditional English seaside resort, blessed with three and a half miles of golden sandy beaches and beautiful seafront gardens bordering a long flat promenade. Join us as we spend 4 nights at The Royal Hotel, Skegness. We relive the story of The Dambusters at the Lincolnshire Aviation Heritage Centre, explore one of Britain's greatest non-Royal Palaces, Burghley House and spend the day at leisure exploring the cathedral city of Lincoln

Monday - Day 1

After your home pick up we head to the Lincolnshire coast for our destination beside the sea, Skegness. Our first visit of the day is Shakespeare's birth place, Stratford Upon Avon. A must-see is his birthplace, a traditional townhouse, surrounded by flowers and gardens. This was the family home, so young William spent much of his early days here. The house has been restored to its original 16th century look, with appropriate decorations and furniture. The main attraction in Stratford-upon-Avon is the home of the renowned Royal Shakespeare Company. After lunch we then proceed towards the east coast and to the Royal Hotel in Skegness, our base for 4 nights.

Tuesday - Day 2

After breakfast we make our way to Woodhall Spa one of Lincolnshire’s most attractive villages famous for being home to 617 Squadron (the Dambusters) during World War II. Here you'll find The Dambusters Memorial. After an early lunch we move on to Lincolnshire Aviation Heritage Centre. 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 the Second World War. It holds one of the rarest aircraft, an Avro Lancaster Bomber, in its collection along with many wartime vehicles.

Wednesday - Day 3

Today's excursion is to Burghley House in Stamford - One of the greatest of Britain's non-royal palaces, a prodigy house built for Elizabeth I's Lord High Treasurer, Lord Burghley. His interiors include a Great Hall with hammer beam roof and vaulted Old Kitchen. Later Earls of Exeter have endowed the building with magnificent collections (including perhaps the finest private collection of 17th century Italian paintings) and an opulent series of state rooms, including the famous Heaven Room painted by Verrio.

Thursday - Day 4

A full day excursion to the Cathedral city of Lincoln, with its narrow streets and quaint old buildings. The cathedral stands on the crest of a ridge rising high above the plateau occupied by the lower town and the river Witham. The castle has fine views and a mixed interior, part medieval and part 19th century. Located in the Cathedral Quarter is the Bailgate, the place to find specialist shops, trendy boutiques and souvenir gifts while the High Street Quarter is where all the main High Street shops are located

Friday - Day 5

Today we say goodbye to "Skeggy" and return to Somerset. After breakfast, we load the coach and make our way South. Our lunch time stop is in the city of dreaming spires, Oxford. Oxford is the county town of Oxfordshire and famous worldwide for its prestigious university, the oldest in the English-speaking world. In his poem ‘Thyrsis’ the Victorian poet Matthew Arnold called Oxford ‘the city of dreaming spires’ after the stunning architecture of these university buildings. Having enjoyed lunch, its time to continue on our way to meet the feeder coaches and return home.
