Day 1 Tuesday

A long sightseeing stop is planned for the diverse attractions of the East Midlands city of Leicester. There is considerable interest in King Richard III (Visitor Centre), whose remains were re-interred in the Cathedral in 2015. In contrast dinosaur skeletons in the New Walk Museum, achievements in space at the National Space Centre and behind-the-scenes tours at the King Power Stadium. Then to Marston for 2 nights dinner, bed & breakfast

Day 2 Wednesday

Not far to Lincoln to meet our guide for a tour of the city and the Cathedral. The old part is a labyrinth of little alleyways, including some quite steep ones, but with plenty of shops and tearooms to stop at.

B, D

Day 3 Thursday

On the River Trent, Nottingham is a thriving university city, forever associated with the legendary Robin Hood and the historic centre of lacemaking. Its sandstone caves, in the hill beneath the Castle, are unique and there are a number of very old pubs in this part of the city. Elsewhere, look out for Old Market Square and the outstanding public buildings which grace the city centre. Arrive home in the evening

B

B=Breakfast, D=Dinner

Get away for a midweek break in the spring and stay at a popular hotel which is in just the right place to get to and from the cities we are featuring. Whether your interest is dinosaurs, Richard III, space, markets or Leicester City FC, you are well-catered for on Day 1. Medieval buildings in steep streets, a Norman Castle and a magnificent Cathedral are compelling reasons to spend time in Lincoln on Day 2, while Robin Hood will welcome you to Nottingham before you travel home.
