Garden Feilds CC On Route To The Airport

Once the team had landed in Portugal from their flight from London, they headed to the accommodation. After checking into their hotel that they later described as friendly and comfortable and ideal for a cricket tour, the remainder of the day and evening was free to get used to their new surroundings in the city of Coimbra. This gave the team a brilliant opportunity to explore the city and get to know all the great local restaurants and bars. 

After returning from their cricket tour, the tour organsiser commented that it was “the area was the highlight of the cricket tour; a beautiful place to stay with good bars and restaurants. We very much enjoyed spending time around the big square up at the top of the hill by the old church that had great bars and restaurants; all of which seemed happy to welcome cricket groups.”
