The Sport of Queens

The Sport of Queens

A love of horses is something shared by Her Majesty The Queen and the crime thriller writer Dick Francis.  Based in the university city of Cambridge, they combine to produce a very attractive 2-night itinerary for clients cruising in or out of Harwich.  ‘The Sport of Queen’s’ was also the title of Dick Francis’ autobiography.  Highlights include:

  • A walking tour of the university colleges
  • Choral Evensong at Kings College
  • A time for reflection at the Cambridge American Cemetery and Memorial
  • An early start to see the horses and jockeys training at the Newmarket Gallops
  • A Dick Francis themed walking tour of Newmarket, the home of British horseracing
  • Morning visit to the picturesque village of Grantchester
  • A swift half of real ale at the smallest pub in England
