Visiting two destinations which played such a huge part in our wartime history, this short break has proved to be hugely enjoyed by our customers and will appeal to those with a healthy interest in Britain’s history.

In the past few years the story of the top secret code breaking facility at Bletchley Park in Buckinghamshire has been thrust in to the public consciousness with a string of television dramas and a superb film starring Benedict Cumberbatch. IWM Duxford is home to an impressive collection of over two hundred aircraft as well as tanks, military vehicles and maritime craft.
Explore the former RAF fighter station that was used during both the First and Second World Wars. 



After being collected from your local pick point around 6.30/8.00am we head up to IWM Duxford in Cambridgeshire with a stop mid morning on route. We arrive at Duxford late morning where you are free to explore this impressive museum. There are a number of exhibitions tracing its history including The 1940’s Operation Room, Historic Duxford - where you can discover how the men and women lived at Duxford, meet the skilled engineers who restore the aircraft plus get up close to some of the most iconic aircraft including the Lancaster, Spitfire, Concorde
and Vulcan. One of the best museums in the UK!! Entrance price included. Late afternoon we head to our hotel near Rugby in Northamptonshire.



Enjoy a delicious and extensive buffet breakfast before we depart the hotel. Fascinating day out as we head to Bletchley Park in Milton Keynes for a visit to the famous WWII code breaking centre. Seeing one of the Enigma Machines, including the rare 'Abwehr G312', is undoubtedly a highlight of a busy day out at Bletchley Park, but there is much more than machines in a visit to this historic site. Check out the tales of spies and strategic deception. There are plenty of different activities and exhibitions, from wartime toys to working computers, a wartime mini cinema to an outstanding Churchill collection. We allow around 6 hours at Bletchley - entrance included. We depart for home around 3.30pm. Arriving back in the local area around 6.30pm.
