Cambridge, Epping, River Punt and Heritage Bus

A weekend of fun, culture and nostalgia. The Epping-Ongar railway operates on the former London Underground route and offers a great combination of preserved railway and heritage bus, maybe a famous Routemaster. We take a journey through the beautiful countryside of Bedfordshire and Cambridge, including the picture postcard village of Old Warden and Ickwell, to enjoy a chauffeured punt through the historic city of Cambridge, including strawberries and cream.

ITINERARY

FRIDAY: A morning departure travelling south to Hertfordshire arriving late afternoon at the Novotel Hotel where tea, coffee and biscuits are served on arrival. Dinner in hotel.

SATURDAY: After breakfast we make our way through the beautiful landscapes of Bedfordshire and Cambridgeshire including the chocolate box villages of Old Warden and Ickwell.

Your guide will ensure you see the highlights of Cambridge’s College buildings. To compliment this truly English setting, strawberries and cream will be served.
