Join us to explore the awe inspiring heritage of the north east's powerful homes, beginning with Washington Old Hall, the ancestral home of George Washington, the first president of the USA to the romantic Greek architecture of the medieval Belsay Hall, Castle and Gardens in Northumbria topped off with a tranquil river cruise.
Little villages, lush green meadows, rich farmlands and sandy heathlands depicted by the famous painters Constable and Gainsborough. We visit historic Bury St Edmunds, with its Dickens connections, and the delightful East Anglian countryside and peaceful coastline. As a nice contrast we visit the ‘Essex Sunshine Coast’.
Cambridge is home to the famous University, carols in King's College Chapel and punting on the river Cam. The beauty of its ancient centre is preserved with its walkable medieval streets; college courts, gardens and bridges, be inspired by the museums and art galleries. This tour also adds visits to the National Horse Racing Heritage Centre and RAF Hendon.
Once again we are delighted to offer this very popular tour. Whether it's the fantastic beaches, the historic towns and villages, rolling hills or lofty mountains of the Picos de Europa you're looking for, Cantabria offers the lot. A gentle, predominantly rural, province but with plenty of action if that's what you're looking for, Cantabria offers good, old-fashioned, seaside or mountain holidays with plenty of adventure for all the family. Between the Atlantic Ocean and the ridge of the Picos De Europa Mountains the scenery is almost Alpine and the climate soft.
Our tour will include two unique and world class attractions around the city of Falkirk. Enjoy a boat trip on the world’s only rotating boat lift, the Falkirk Wheel, followed by a visit to The Kelpies, a colossal monument to the horse powered heritage of the region.

Scarborough fully justifies its claim as one of Britain’s major resorts, being ideally set between two bays and overlooked by the ruins of Scarborough Castle. The rugged North Yorkshire Moors National Park is within easy distance, as is historic Whitby. We also enjoy a full day to the historic city of York, with its many attractions.
Join us on a wonderful break visiting Wollaton Hall, Gardens and Deer Park, the stunning locale filmed in the globally acclaimed Batman movie The Dark Knight Rises, the tranquillity of the Trent River Cruise and the majesty of the East Midland’s breathtaking countryside aboard the Ecclesbourne Valley Railway.
Think of Austria and it's a tussle for the iconic image that will pop into your head first: Julie Andrews spinning on a mountain top, Vienna's imperial dazzle, the snowy peaks of the Alps... This former heart of the Austro-Hungarian empire sits at the base of the Alps and the crossroads of central Europe - and if the ambience here is more nostalgia than innovation, and more poise than pizzazz, then it's easy to understand why. European high culture was dominated by Austria for centuries during the reign of the Hapsburg dynasty. This is the land of Mozart and Strauss, Freud and Klimt, of grand palaces, onion-bulb churches and beautiful Baroque and Art Nouveau buildings. These days, old and new combine in a seamless experience for visitors, transport links are superb and tourist infrastructure is frighteningly well organised, ensuring you won't miss any of the experiences Austria has to offer.
