CHRISTMAS : Early December means traditional pantos, Christmas markets, carols in ancient Cathedrals, seasonally decorated towns & stately homes.
TRAINS : Longer sectors are often by train like this East Coast express on the Durham Viaduct. You arrive @ the destination relaxed & refreshed.
YUMMY : We love to include afternoon tea. Maybe a Devon cream tea; special Women's Institute tea; a stately home tea; or olde-worlde tea shop.
HOTELS : Our focus is centrally located hotels like the Premier Inn beside the canal in Stratford-upon-Avon. It's just a 7 minute walk from William Shakespeare's Birthplace.
UNUSUAL : Oxburgh Hall, Norfolk has lots of history. We like quieter historic houses. You are treated more like a Guest.
ESSENTIAL : Everybody gets an included airport transfer on arrival & departure days. In London we use fast Gatwick & Heathrow expresses & the Tube.
RELAX : Our express train trips are mostly in 1st class. This includes FREE snacks & now mostly FREE wifi too. Breakfast or dinner is included on some services.
SPACIOUS : Our small group tours use MIDI-Coaches. Much more spacious & higher [Better views.] than the usual cramped minibuses.
ACCESSIBLE : Our 'hub' tour style allows more time to explore places like quaint Claddagh, Galway Bay. Usually you only see those pics in the tour brochures!
SIMPLE : In London AT ALL TIMES, Tube & red bus travel is INCLUDED in the tour price with a very easy to use Oyster Card. Just swipe & go.
LOCATION : Downtown hotels make it easier to get to little extras like the original Hogwarts Express in the NRM in York.
PUB DINING : Enjoy Irish music pub dinners & ancient British pub dining like here at the 800 years old Oxford University Turf Tavern pub.
