Next we visit the Lincolnshire Aviation Heritage Centre, where you can experience the atmosphere of the bomber 'Just Jane' (Taxi Runs are not included)


Enjoy an excursion to the heart of the dramatic fenland to a gem of a market town, Boston, which is immersed in history and dominated by its 14th century St Botolph's Church whose high tower is locally known as a 'Stump.' Continue to Spalding, famous as the centre of the UK flower industry, with its elegant Georgian terraces and tree-lined river walks and visit the Springfield's Outlet Shopping Centre and award-winning Festival Gardens.


Our 'Aviation Heritage' theme continues today with a visit to the Bomber Command Centre - a world class facility that serves as a point of recognition and rememberance for Bomber Command. In the afternoon we head to the historic city of Lincoln, whose cathedral towers majestically overlook the city and its many other historic attractions including a Norman Castle and charming medieval and Georgian houses.
