Spend a day at Sandringham or learn about the Sport of Kings during Spirit of Discovery’s four-day mini cruise

Spirit of Discovery  (Credit Zoe Ayton - Portland Harbour Authority Portland Harbour Authority)Tour Her Majesty the Queen’s private estate at Sandringham during a four-day mini cruise on Saga’s new ship Spirit of Discovery. When the Queen takes a break from her royal duties she often heads to Sandringham, a vast manor set within a 20,000-acre county park.

Saga guests can venture inside the house and museum to see an impressive collection of ceramics, portraits and royal vehicles. There’s also a chance to ‘take tea’ in the Stables Tea Room and wander in the gardens.

Newmarket National Heritage Centre for Horseracing and Sporting Art is another tour option for guests who are passionate about horseracing and they can track the sport from its infancy as a royal pastime to sophisticated 21st century horseracing.

Guests can visit to the Rothschild Yard where the charity Retraining of Racehorses cares for retired horses and provides them with a new skillset for life after racing. An opportunity to watch the charity’s work in a private training centre is included in the excursion.

Both full day tours depart from Great Yarmouth during the four-night Escape to the Continent mini cruise to Amsterdam where the ship moors overnight. Saga has arranged a magical night-time cruise to drift along the historic canals, while a visit to colourful Keukenhof Gardens is another ‘bucket-list’ springtime option.

The mini cruise presents a perfect opportunity to sample life on the luxurious, all-balcony boutique ship with all meals, including the speciality restaurants and 24-hour room service, included in the price plus drinks and plenty of entertainment and music to dance the nights away.

The cruise is all inclusive. Includes all gratuities and wifi is free.
