A pamphlet published by the Cambridge Tourist information Centre,
detailing a few tourist attractions around Cambridgeshire (England) and farther
afield as far as halfway to London.
Listed attractions are:
Anglesey Abbey, Gardens and Lode Mill
What appears to be a fairly typical Natonal Trust stately home.
Audley End House and Gardens.
The bitter rivalry between the National Trust and English Heritage
is revealed, as English Heritage throw their hat into the stately homes
Chilford Hall Vineyard & Winery.
Let's face it, alcohol is always a big draw, and the possibility of free
samples is hard to resist.
Imperial War Museum Duxford.
Alright, I'll own up that this is actually interesting if you happen to
be an aviation enthusiast, or a military history nut. Restoration
works in progress are on display in the hangars, and
some rarities are on display, including the Concorde prototype.
The National Stud.
"Discover what happens behind the scenes of one of the most restigious
stud farms in the country..." Enough said.
Yet another stately home, but with a gimmick: it has a moat. Not
affiliated with either English Heritage or the National Trust.
Claiming a tendency towards conservation and education, I'm no expert
on zoos and feel ill-equiped to comment.
Mountfitchet Castle & Norman Village of 1066.
From illustrations, it appears rather small, though it has a certain quaint,
Monty Python and the Holy Grail charm.
The National Horseracing Museum and Tours.
Surely only of interest to those afficianados of Horse Racing, features
include a wide variety of silly hats, and the absurdly titled 'Horse
Simulator', which I'm sure must be experinced to be fully appreciated.
Wimpole Hall, Gardens, Park and Farm.
Gammut-running notwithstanding, the National Trust
thwart English Heritage at the last by pulling this little doozy of a
stately home out of their pocket.
There's not a lot to do around Cambridge
. Even my parents agree.
Sorry, what's that you say?
