Enjoy a countryside escape on the outskirts of Cambridge, staying at the 4-star Cambridge Belfry Hotel & Spa. With idyllic lakeside surroundings, a luxurious spa (extra charges may apply, please pay locally) and modern facilities, this hotel is perfect for relaxation, but also a great base from which to explore from. Discover historic Cambridge before heading to Newmarket where we visit the National Stud, an internationally renowned thoroughbred horse breeding farm. The unique experiences don’t end there as we venture north to join the Nene Valley Railway, the UK’s leading international steam attraction. Our final day gives you the chance to make the most of the hotel’s superb facilities, or join our optional excursion to Bury St Edmunds.
