ITINERARY:

CAMBRIDGE

After an initial fast-track out from London, this tour brings us to the city of Cambridge, a centre of academic excellence. Its famous university is referred to by arch-rivals Oxford as the 'Other Place'! It was formed by rebellious students from Oxford, and by the 15th century the change from market town to university town was complete. Unlike Oxford, however, the academic community is not so uptight, and there is a symbiotic relationship between ‘Town and Gown’, so the whole atmosphere is much more relaxed. Visit the colleges themselves, in all their gothic glory: among the most famous, Magdalen, Corpus Christi, King’s, Queens’, Jesus, Trinity and Gonville & Caius.

Cambridge is a market town and the main square often bustles with traders' stalls and carts. Visit some of its famous pubs, including the Eagle, a former coaching inn much used during during WWII by air force pilots who burned their names onto the ceiling with lighters. A decade later, leading lights from the science community, Francis Crick and James Watson came and celebrated their discovery of DNA. Other highlights include the Fitzwilliam Museum for 18th & 19th century art and classical antiquities, and the Mathematical Bridge... how on earth was it put together? Alternatively, just relax, turn off your mind, and float downstream... students earn pocket-money punting boats along the River Cam, known as the 'Backs'.
● Usually open daily.
● Any admissions payable on entry.
● Your guide will conduct the tour.

DUXFORD WAR MUSEUM
Duxford is a military museum which features many United States connections. It is based on an aerodrome which was built during the First World War and was one of the earliest Royal Air Force stations. During World War II it served as a fighter station. There are a number of exhibitions in different hangars around the site including Land Warfare, Air & Sea, 1940 Operations Room and Battle of Britain. Most impressive is the American Air Museum which contains the finest collection of American combat aircraft outside of the United States including the awesome B52 bomber.
● Usually open daily.
● Admission payable on entry.
● Your guide will conduct the tour.

Pick-up/drop-off: You can be picked-up for your tour anywhere in the central London area, whether at your hotel, place of residence, or venue of your request. The same applies as a dropping-off point after the tour. Tours from London may use fastest routes.
