We take a journey through the beautiful countryside of Bedfordshire and Cambridgeshire, including the picture postcard villages of Old Warden and Ickwell, to enjoy a chauffeur punt through the historic city of Cambridge, including strawberries and cream!

Day One

Depart from your home and travel to Hertfordshire arriving late afternoon at The Novotel Hotel.

Tea/Coffee & biscuits served on arrival, time to relax before dinner.

 

Day Two

This morning we journey through the beautiful landscapes of Bedfordshire and Cambridgeshire including the chocolate box villages of Old Warden and lckwell. Stopping off in the market town of St Neots, we journey to Cambridge where we board our chauffeured punt through the back waters of Cambridge. Our guide will not only guide the punt along the River Cam, but will also ensure we see the highlights of Cambridge's College buildings. To compliment this truly English setting, strawberries and cream will be served as you glide by the many college buildings. There is then time for you to explore the wonderful City of Cambridge before we travel back to the Hotel in time to enjoy a relaxing drink before dinner.

 

Day Three

After a leisurely breakfast we head off to north east London and North Weald. Here we join the Epping-Ongar Railway, one of the most recently opened preserved lines operating on part of the old London Tube route. Our visit includes return train ride from North Weald to Epping Forest- there is no platform here - you cannot get off, stay in your seat and enjoy the return ride to North Weald. Here we change our mode of transport and enjoy a ride on board a heritage London bus to Ongar station. We have time for a drink and bite to eat at the Buffer Stop Cafe before we rejoin the heritage bus back to North Weald where your coach takes us back to our hotel.

 

Day Four

After breakfast we depart our hotel and begin our homeward journey with comfort stops enroute.
