Bomber Command in Lincolnshire Tours

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.

Bomber Command in Lincolnshire Tours

The best way to explore the airfields of Bomber Command in Lincolnshire

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. This is a great location that is connected to our tours and was requisitioned by the RAF for use as the Officers' Mess for the squadrons at RAF Woodhall Spa. The hotel is very aware of its history and there are a few bits and pieces in the hotel that you can look at in your free time.
