The day begins with a drive to Newmarket – home of Horseracing, here we visit the National Horseracing Centre and learn all about the history of the ‘Sport of Kings’ and perhaps the Packard Galleries of Sporting Art.  Later we continue to the historic city of Ely, an ideal place for all interests and tastes with a splendid array of medieval buildings and narrow streets.  Ely is the perfect place to enjoy lunch or visit its main attraction, the magnificent Cathedral known as ‘The Ship of the Fens’.
