We drive to Peterborough, where the historical centre is crowned by the 12th Century Cathedral with its gothic façade. Free time to explore before we continue to our hotel for our 2 night stay.


This morning we head for Newmarket, home of horse racing. Our guide will take us to the Gallops, show us around a trainer's yard, and visit the National Stud. This is a fascinating and informative visit, even for those not into horse racing. We visit the yard of a top trainer and see the daily working and a behind the scenes look at a real training stable, whilst having the chance to get up close and personal with the horses. From here we are off to Newmarket Racecourse for Race Day. We have time for lunch, and enjoy the exciting atmosphere as you cheer your favourite towards the winning post. During our visit we have included Afternoon Tea at the Races. Later we return to the hotel to hopefully celebrate a successful day.


Our destination today is the University City of Cambridge, where we meet our guide for a tour of the magnificent University City. Enjoy an overview of Cambridge's city centre. After free time for lunch, we commence our journey homeward.
