HIGHLIGHTS

 

Stamford   |   Guided Tour of Lincoln Cathedral  |   Guided Coach Tour of Lincoln   |    Skegness   |   Hotel Entertainment  

 

A delightful tour visiting some of the most scenic and interesting areas that Lincolnshire has to offer, including Britain's best small city bursting with heritage, culture and creativity, and historic towns idyllic enough to have formed the backdrop for television's costume dramas and period films.

 

 

DAY ONE

We depart from your home with our exclusive door to door pick up service and join your coach to travel to Lincolnshire, arriving late afternoon, tea/coffee await you on arrival whilst your luggage is taken to your room.  Before dinner tonight we will have a glass of Bucks Fizz.

 

DAY TWO

This morning we make our way to the beautiful and historic town of Stamford, a joyous coincidence of geography and geology has allowed Stamford to remain the "finest stone town in England", and the recorded history of Stamford goes back well over 1,000 years. Packed full of architectural history and interesting buildings, as well as art and craft shops, little side streets to explore, cafes and tea rooms.  There are lots of opportunity to obtain a drink and a bite to eat for lunch. On our return we will call into Boundary Mill with time to browse the many individual in-house mini shops.  Dinner tonight is followed by in-house entertainment.

 

DAY THREE

Enjoy a leisurely breakfast before we head off to the seaside resort of Skegness where we have time to explore and have lunch.  Skegness is the largest resort town on the Lincolnshire Coast and has been a premier holiday destination for over a hundred years. Relax on the award winning clean sandy beach stretching out towards the sea, along the beautifully landscaped foreshore. Maybe enjoy a paddle, or visit the attractions including Skegness pier, and the many other facilities along the promenade and seafront, before we return to our hotel.  After dinner this evening we have live entertainment.

 

DAY FOUR

Today we drive to the historic city of Lincoln with its magnificent Cathedral and next to it the Norman Castle. Lincoln's history can be traced back as far as 300BC and links to the city's past heritage can be seen even today. The old town is a labyrinth of little alleyways and interesting shops to explore – there are plenty of tea rooms to keep you going. On arrival we will have a guided tour around Lincoln on our coach then head up to the Cathedral for a guided tour around.  The Cathedral dates from 1072, the long history of the Cathedral includes a fire in 1141, an earthquake in 1185 and the removal of part of the city wall in 1255 to make way for an extension.  In the 14th century the central tower and those of the West end were heightened, and all had spires until 1549 when that of the central tower, which made Lincoln Cathedral the tallest building in the world blew down. In 1807 the remaining towers were removed for safety reasons and it is at this point we see the Cathedral as it stands today. We return to our hotel leaving time to relax before dinner and our final evening of live entertainment.

 

DAY FIVE

After our final breakfast we bid farewell and begin our homeward journey with comfort stops enroute.
