Battle of Britain

County Hotel (Skegness)

5 Days Half Board by Coach

Highlights: RAF Digby, Newark Air Museum, Petwood House, RAF Coningsby, RAF Winthorpe, Aviation Heritage Centre at East Kirkby.

Lincolnshire has a vast aviation heritage and is renowned as the ‘Home of the Royal Air Force’.

The county’s flat open countryside made it ideal for development of airfields during the Great War, and during World War II Lincolnshire became the most important home of Bomber Command.

Combining visits to museums and trailing some of the former RAF stations in the area, our fascinating itinery bears witness to the courage, determinations and bravery of the men and women who served our country in more turbulent times.

Your hotel stay includes an evening talk from our aviation historian!
