Lincolnshire was Bomber Command country during the Second World War and we are pleased to offer three variations of a tour following in the footsteps of Bamber Command.
Lincolnshire proudly calls itself Bomber County. In the Second World War, there were 46 airfields within the county boundary, many flying the big bombers of Bomber Command.
We are pleased to offer a tour following in the footsteps of Bomber Command in Lincolnshire. This tour can also be tailored to look at the Dambusters or even the part played by Empire and/or Allied Air Forces.
Our recommended accommodation for your tour is the Petwood Hotel in Woodhall Spa.
