Spend time around the medieval university colleges and explore the history of aviation in Britain
The charming university city of Cambridge has much to offer visitors. This medieval city is an interesting mix of the historic and contemporary, the vibrant energy of youth steeped in classical tradition. This is a place that inspired a variety of minds from Charles Darwin and William Wordsworth to several members of Monty Python and the lads of Pink Floyd. After an orientation tour around the colleges with your guide, you'll have free time to explore as you choose. Perhaps visit the wonderful Fitzwilliam Museum, the lovely botanical gardens or go shopping in the arts and crafts market. Maybe try a punt on the River Cam? Lots of options!
Imperial War Museum Duxford is set within the spacious grounds of the famous former First and Second World War airfield and has been called one of the finest collections of tanks, military vehicles and naval exhibits in the country. Housed here is the 1940 Operations Room, which orchestrated the Battle of Britain, and The American Air Museum honouring US airmen who fought from UK shores. The AirSpace section tells the story of British and Commonwealth aviation, home to over 30 aircraft including an iconic Spitfire, a legendary Lancaster and the fastest-ever Concorde. This place is an interesting visit not just for aviation enthusiasts but for those wishing to explore a bit of modern history.
