And whilst you are soaking in England’s greenest pastures it might be fitting to pay a visit to the Battle of Britain Flight Memorial Centre where you can pay homage to the RAF ground and air crew who gave up their lives to keep Britain, great. Stand next to a Hurricane, Spitfire, Lancaster, Dakota and imagine all that metal soaring through the skies. Join a tour and become enlightened with tales of immense bravery. Visit a fantastic piece of living history set in an ‘active’ RAF station. Head to the café, order a cappuccino and do not be surprised to find a chocolate spitfire floating on top! A lovely day out for aviation enthusiasts and adults!
Spies and secret agents also did their bit to win the war, they unlocked clues and supplied information which lead to victory. If you fancy yourself as the next Inspector Poirot you can solve a few mysteries of your own by taking part in the Woodhall Spy Mission Treasure Trail. Put on your thinking cap and foil the plans of Coca Pep, the devilishly naughty drinks magnate. The trail will lead you into the town centre…once home to the 617 Dambusters RAF Aircraft Squadron. Wander through Pinewoods Forest unscrambling those cryptic clues along the way, pass the Kinema in the Woods, the movies are modern and up to date but the setting is out of this world. Certainly, an experience you will not want to miss…the seating, the snacks and the way that the organist rises from the stage floor during the break will leave you uttering just three words “wow wow wow”. Watch a movie in one of the very few cinemas which still uses a rear projection screen. Then…after all that distraction, it is back to sniffing out those clues as you head into Jubilee Park, passing many quaint tea and coffee shops along the way.
