Itinerary so far...
During World War II, Bletchley Park was home to Britain's codebreakers, including Alan Turing, and played a unique and major role in producing intelligence that affected the outcome of the war. The site now offers visitors the chance to see where the code breakers lived and worked, the Library and wartime garages complete with WWII vehicles.
If there's time you have the option to look around the National Museum of Computing, which is dedicated to collecting and restoring historic computer systems, and the National Radio Centre, where you can learn about the basic principles of radio and discover the history of radio communication.
Cambridge is a university city located on the River Cam. The university dates back to 1209 and colleges of note include Trinity College, founded by King Henry VIII and King's College with its Gothic chapel. Incidentally this is where Bletchley's Alan Turin graduated so there's a strong theme to this tour. We'll drive you around the city so you can marvel at the splendid architecture and maybe even time to stop off to watch the fellows punting along the river.
You're probably feeling peckish by now so it's off to a traditional English pub where you can enjoy great British staples such as fish and chips, shepherd's pie or even curry!
Alternatively we can take you to Royal Windsor where you can walk the Long Walk, stroll around the town and visit Windsor Castle. William the Conqueror built the original castle in the 12th century and it has been the longest occupied palace by a monarch since the reign of King Edward I.
