BLUE BADGE GUIDED TOUR

This trip includes visits to Southwold and Aldeburgh with a fish & chip lunch at the famous Flora Tea Rooms on Dunwich beach

We start our  Blue Badge Tour in Woodbridge, just above Ipswich, to buy morning coffee.

In Aldeburgh the Moot Hall, once in the centre of the town, now teeters on the water’s edge.   We see where the fishermen still sell their catch on the beach and marvel at the controversial Maggi Hambling scallop sculpture.

We then drive on to Dunwich for lunch.   The town has already been claimed by the sea but the brilliant Flora Tea Rooms survives on the beach.   In addition to a choice of fish served with chips there’s a slice of bread plus a dessert and a cup of tea or coffee, all included in the tour fee.

In the afternoon we continue along the coast.   Thorpeness is an eccentric puzzle of mock Tudor houses and the quirky “House in the Clouds”.

In the elegant little Edwardian resort town of Southwold old cottages of great charm cluster around the gleaming white lighthouse and candy coloured beach huts line the shore.

We explore possibly the finest mediaeval church in England – the home of “Southwold Jack”.   Your day ends with free time to enjoy this jolly seaside town and pick a spot for tea before heading for home at 4.45pm

Southwold Seaside Excursion

Location: Southwold

Date: Sunday 26th May 2024

Price: Adult £20 - Children (Under 15 Yrs) £15 (Price is for Coach Travel)

SEASIDE DAY EXCURSION

Southwold is a charming North Suffolk Seaside Resort.

Southwold lies in the centre of an area of great natural beauty – a paradise for the walker, the naturalist and the birdwatcher. Situated on a hill that gently rises from the Blyth Valley, the town is virtually an island, being surrounded by the River Blyth to the south and Buss Creek to the north.  There is just one road in and out of Southwold

The quiet, understated elegance of its Georgian houses, its 100 foot Lighthouse towering above the Sole Bay Inn,  its pier (the first to be built in Britain since the 1950s) and cliff top promenade above the sandy beach, and of course its brightly coloured beach huts, all work together to create this atmosphere of a bygone age.

This is not a place for amusement arcades or Kiss me Quick Hats.

Every day you can see the Adnams Brewery Dray Horses plodding around the streets making deiveries and a visit to the Adnams shop will ensure that you can take something special home.

Spend some time visiting St Emunds Church which was completed in 1640.  Once inside, and immediately in front of you, is the wooden figure of Southwold Jack, who dates from the 15th Century and who for many years has struck his bell at the start of each service as well as welcoming brides on their wedding day.  When you next look at the Adnams Logo (a medieval foot soldier, holding a sword and ready to strike his bell), you will see Southwold Jack.

The Book Of Mormon

Location: Prince of Wales Theatre - LONDON

Date: Monday 3rd June 2024

Price: £74 Per Person (Price includes Coach Travel and Show Ticket)

THEATRE & SHOWS

EVENING PERFORMANCE

The Book Of Mormon is a nine-time Tony-winning, multi-Olivier awarded and Grammy-getting musical. Playing at London’s Prince of Wales Theatre, it continues to have West End audiences knocking on its door. Have you joined the mission?

Written by the animated sitcom’s creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone, along with Avenue Q co-creator Robert LopezThe Book Of Mormon is a satirical musical that takes shots at everything from organised religion to consumerism, the state of the economy and the musical theatre genre itself.

The show tells the story of two young Mormon missionaries who travel to Africa to preach the Mormon religion, only to discover they have a lot more to learn about the real world than they have to teach about Mormonism.

When the pair of opposites land in a poverty-stricken, crime-riddled and disease-filled village in Uganda, the enigmatic over-achiever and prideful Mormon Elder Price learns that charms and good looks don’t get you far. As for his awkward and enthusiastic partner Elder Cunningham; well, he’s just happy to have a friend and be included in something. Thousands of miles from Salt Lake City and facing the biggest of reality checks, Elder Price’s faith is shaken. He must convince himself of the scriptures he’s preaching before he can convert any of the locals who are more concerned with war, famine, and AIDS than Mormonism. However, armed with his own interpretation of the Book and an innocent disposition, Elder Cunningham thrives… sort of.

Highgate & Hampstead with Fish & Chip Lunch

Location: London

Date: Wednesday 5th June 2024

Price: £59 Per Person (Price includes Coach Travel, Blue Badge Tour and Fish and Chip Lunch)

IN-HOUSE GUIDED TOUR

When London’s churchyards filled up, just as a young Queen Victoria came to the throne, a scheme was launched to build The Magnificent Seven – huge, modern cemeteries in a ring around the City.

As soon as it opened in 1839 Highgate Cemetery in the Northern hills became THE place to be buried if you were rich or famous.    Highgate would become one of the greatest cemeteries in the world full of eccentric funerary architecture.   In the heart of the grounds the Egyptian Avenue leads to the Circle of Lebanon created by earth being excavated around an ancient Cedar of Lebanon.

The cemetery fell into ruin for many years until in the 1970s The Friend of Highgate Cemetery was formed to buy the freehold – today the tours are run to raise money to look after it.

Nature has gradually taken over and this remarkable site is now also an important wild-life reserve.

Come and meet London’s famous dead in this Victorian Valhalla.

At 12 Noon, we Arrive in Hampstead for Fish & Chips lunch with dessert (cheesecake) and tea/coffee.  The  restaurant is on the ground floor and can cater for gluten free and other dietary requirements when pre-ordered.   At 2.00pm we commence our Guided tour of the West Cemetery (the extraordinary side with all the gothic tombs), which lasts around 70 minutes.   Paths are steep and sometimes muddy and there are two flights of stairs so please be aware of this and wear appropriate footwear.   Following there is time for a self-guided visit to the East Cemetery (where Karl Marx is).   This is on a gentler slope with tarmac paths and is more easily accessible.

MATINEE PERFORMANCE

Discover the untold story of the Witches of Oz

Already the 9th longest-running West End musical of all time, Wicked has been seen by over 10 million people in London alone and played almost 6000 performances.

The classic musical is the winner of over 100 major international awards.

When Dorothy famously triumphed over the Wicked Witch of the West, we only ever heard one side of the story.

Wicked is based on the 1995 novel by Gregory Maguire – Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West.

It takes a look at the Land of Oz with new eyes and creates a parallel journey to the familiar The Wonderful Wizard of Oz by L. Frank Baum.

At the core of Wicked is friendship, in this case a very unlikely one.

The blonde and very popular Glinda and a misunderstood green girl, Elphaba.   They first meet at school and after a bumpy start, they form a strong friendship.   Their journey takes a turn during a visit to Oz to meet the Wizard where during that encounter their lives take very different paths.   Glinda is lured into a powerful and public role while Elphaba remains determined to be true to herself and the people in her life, whatever the cost – both paths seeing them fulfil their destinies as Glinda The Good and The Wicked Witch of the West.

Vibrant, celebratory and steeped in tradition, the third day of Royal Ascot, colloquially known as Ladies Day, is a day to see and be seen.  It is a glorious occasion, when high fashion and millinery masterpieces take centre stage alongside Flat Racing’s most elite stayers locking horns in the historic Gold Cup.

Royal Ascot is a  major fashion event in its own right, where sartorial trends for the summer season are set, Thursday sees the most spectacular millinery creations on display, and boasts an unprecedented sense of style to match the prestige on the track.

The day begins with the Royal Procession –

The arrival of The  Royal party in horse-drawn landaus, which parade along the track in front of the race- goers.   The Royal Procession dates back to the 1820s and the reign of King George IV, at which time it was referred to as the Royal Parade or Royal Drive.

The Royal Enclosure is at the heart of Royal Ascot.   Entry to the enclosure is by sponsorship from an existing member who has attended in four previous years.   Within this area, gentlemen are required to wear morning dress with a top hat and ladies must wear formal day wear.   The origin of this tradition can be traced back to around the time of the running of Ascot’s most famous race,

Royal Ascot’s Windsor Enclosure is perfect for those wishing to be close to the heart of the action.   Racegoers can enjoy being the first to view the Royal Procession as the carriages journey up the famous Straight Mile and get close to the rails for each race to experience the thrill of horses thundering past.  Their is no formal dress code within the Windsor Enclosure.

The Gold Cup, which was inaugurated in 1807 and remains to this day the most important long distance horse race on the flat anywhere in the world.

MATINEE PERFORMANCE

Direct from a sensational run up in Manchester — where it played to sold-out crowds and standing ovations — the new comedy musical MRS. DOUBTFIRE is ready to dazzle and delight London’s West End.

Out-of-work actor Daniel will do anything for his kids.   After losing custody in a messy divorce, he creates the alter ego of Scottish nanny Euphegenia Doubtfire in a desperate attempt to stay in their lives.   As his new character takes on a life of its own, MRS. DOUBTFIRE teaches Daniel more than he bargained for about how to be a father.

MRS. DOUBTFIRE has been created by a transatlantic team of award-winning artists, with a book by Karey Kirkpatrick and John O’Farrell, original music and lyrics by Wayne and Karey Kirkpatrick (the Tony Award-nominated team behind Something Rotten!, along with O’Farrell), direction by 4-time Tony winner Jerry Zaks (Hello, Dolly!), scenic design by David Korins (Hamilton), choreography by Lorin Latarro (Waitress), and music supervision by Ethan Popp (Tina: The Tina Turner Musical).

Belvoir Castle and Gardens

Location: Grantham

Date: Friday 28th June 2024

Price: £49 Per Person (Price includes Coach Travel, Guided Tour of Castle, Admission to Gardens and Cream Tea)

ATTRACTIONS & PLACES OF INTEREST

Visit Belvoir Castle, the ancestral home of the Duke of Rutland, and explore its stunning gardens, lakes and retail village.

The land at Belvoir was a gift from William the Conqueror to the family’s first recorded ancestor Robert de Todeni.   One of his Norman barons, Robert de Todeni was William’s Standard Bearer in the Battle of Hastings in 1066.

Crowning a hill, the Castle’s turrets and towers rise over the Vale of Belvoir like an illustration in a romantic fairy-tale.   The name Belvoir – meaning ‘beautiful view’ in French, and pronounced today as ‘beaver’ – dates back to Norman times.   Today, Belvoir Castle is said by experts to be one of the finest examples of Regency architecture in the country.

In addition, the gardens have undergone several major changes over the centuries – the latest being a two-year restoration programme by the present Duchess to bring the lost plans of Capability Brown to fruition in 2016.   For lovers of the outdoors, there are many new walks through the formal gardens on the castle terrace and into the woodland through the Japanese, Duchess’s and Hermit’s gardens.    The Duke’s Walk is three miles and allows you to take in all the gardens with stunning views.

Brunel’s Bristol Tour (Four Nights)

Location: Bristol

Date: Thursday 25th to Monday 29th July 2024

Price: £449.00 Per Person (Sharing Twin/Double Room) - Single Room Supplement £104.00

FOUR NIGHT HALF BOARD SHORT BREAK

For this trip, we will be staying at the Hampton by Hilton Hotel in Bristol.   The hotel is superbly located for both business and leisure travellers in the heart of the city centre.  This trip offers coach travel, four nights half board Hotel and includes excursions to SS Great Britain, the Blue Glass Factory, a City Dock cruise with cream tea and a four hour Blue Badge guided tour which will include the Clifton Suspension Bridge and visitor centre.

Brunel’s SS Great Britain is one of the most important historic ships in the world.   When she was launched in 1843, she was called ‘the greatest experiment since the creation’.   No one had ever designed so vast a ship, nor had the vision to build it of iron.   Brunel fitted her with a 1000 hp steam engine, the most powerful yet used at sea.   Perhaps most daring of all, Brunel rejected using conventional paddle wheels to drive his ship.   Instead, he gave the SS Great Britain a screw propeller.   This was the newest invention in maritime technology.   By seeing how to combine these key innovations, Brunel created a ship that changed history.

On 7 April 1970, a team of expert divers managed to re-float the SS Great Britain, after spending days plugging holes in the ship’s hull and pumping out water.   It took two more weeks, working in terrible weather conditions, for the salvage team to secure the ship on to a huge floating pontoon.   Finally, on the 24th of April, the ship began her 87 day voyage back to Bristol across the Atlantic Ocean.   The 8,000-mile journey to Avonmouth was the longest ever under tow, and the re-floating and return to Bristol beneath the Clifton Suspension Bridge was watched by crowds of spectators and millions on television.

The SS Great Britain Trust is a dedicated education charity with a vision to protect the legacy of Brunel and the SS Great Britain and inspire engineers and entrepreneurs of the future.   Alive with hundreds of sights, sounds and even smells inspired by real passenger accounts, the ship and its two adjacent museums allow you to discover Brunel’s Victorian world and experience life on board.

Bristol Hot Air Balloon Fiesta

Location: Bristol

Date: Saturday 10th August 2024

Price: Adult £28 - Child (Under 16 Years) £20 (Price includes Coach Travel and Balloon Fiesta)

ATTRACTIONS & PLACES OF INTEREST

This iconic event has been a steadfast in the UK’s event calendar for more than four decades.    With the city of Bristol playing the best matched host as the birthplace of ballooning in Europe, and now the capital of the sport worldwide.

With mass ascents of over 100 hot air balloons scheduled, visitors have the chance to see the compact central arena awash with a rainbow of colour at dusk (approx. 6pm) to mark the closing of the day before the start of evening celebrations.   During the day, a programme of entertainment, traders, exhibitors, caterers, and activities allow visitors to experience the magic of ballooning and this unique day out even when the weather prevents them from taking flight.

At the heart of the experience of this unique event, is a game of chance – Will these majestic hot air balloons take flight?   With mass ascents of over 100 hot air balloons scheduled twice daily, visitors have the chance to see the compact central arena awash with a rainbow of colour.

Ballooning is weather dependent, specifically in relation to wind so this is built into the experience.   As forecasts can change, and the weather around Ashton Court Estate can be very localised any decision to fly is left until the pilot’s briefings, which take place just before a scheduled flight.

A countdown and smoke cannon then reveals whether it is safe for pilots to fly.   If they don’t fly the Fiesta has refocussed attention to introduce multiple opportunities for visitors to still experience the magic of ballooning.

If they do fly, visitors are given a spectacle like no other.   The chance occurrence of witnessing a mass ascent is awe-inspiring and truly magical thanks to the incredible balloon teams, a compact arena, and the backdrop of the city of Bristol.

Four Night Break in Liverpool during International Beatles Week

Date: Friday 23rd to Tuesday 27th August 2024

Price: £480 Per Person (Sharing Double/Twin Room) - Single Room Supplement £57.50 Per Night ** NOTE: A Payment Plan is available for this break

SHORT BREAK

This week is BEATLES WEEK in Liverpool and all of the clubs, pubs and bars will be playing back to back Beatles Music.

Staying at the Mecure Atlantic Tower Hotel, this trip will celebrate everything that is The Beatles.

Your Itinerary

Friday

Our coach will travel to the hotel in Liverpool.  You will have free time in Liverpool and our hosts have arranged a get-together at 6pm to enable you to meet and get to know your fellow guests.

Saturday

At 11am our coach will take you to the Casbah Coffee club.  The Casbah and its owner, Mona Best, brought about many pivotal moments in the early days of The Beatles, shaping their beginnings and providing a home for the distinctive Merseybeat sound which would change the face of popular music forever.   The Casbah knew the savage young Beatles before Epstein: their first live performances were here, in the club they made their own, even being involved in decorating the basement in its distinctive style.

Sunday

Today we visit the Liverpool Beatles Museum, which houses one of the largest Beatles collections in the world, featuring over 1,000 items.  A visit to the museum is a journey through the early days in Liverpool and Hamburg

Monday

Our coach will depart from the hotel at 11am to take you on a three hour Beatles Tour with a knowledgable local guide.  You will be taken to the boys home where they grew up, the pub where Ringo’s mum used to work, their schools, the graveyard where a certain song got its name and much more.

Tuesday

After a leisurely breakfast, we will leave the hotel at 11am and drive to Strawberry Field – a former Salvation Army Children’s home.  When John was a child, his Aunt Mimi’s house backed on to here and he used to climb the fence and queue up with the orphans for dinner.  We have a light lunch booked before we enter the museum where you can immerse yourself in the life and times of John Lennon, before we start your drive home.

SEASIDE DAY EXCURSION

From iconic tourist attractions to beachfront cool, Brighton is a treasure trove of things to do and places to go.

Ever since royal party animal George IV fell in love with Brighton back in the 18th Century, the city has been a magnet for visitors in search of fun, frolics and fresh sea air. With its majestic Regency squares and crescents, iconic Royal Pavilion and famous piers, today Brighton is as well-known for being a welcoming and diverse city with a passion for culture, creativity and sustainability as it is for its historic landmarks.

From the stunning heritage of the Royal Pavilion, Regency architecture and Victorian aquariums to the seaside fun of Brighton Pier and the famous pebble beach, Brighton offers something for every walk of life.

A great place to visit is the spectacular seaside palace of the Prince Regent (George IV) transformed by John Nash between 1815 and 1822 into one of the most dazzling and exotic buildings in the British Isles.   The Pavilion houses furniture and works of art including original pieces lent by HM The Queen and a magnificent display of Regency silver-gilt.   The Royal Pavilion Tearoom, with its fabulous balcony, overlooks the Pavilion gardens, has also been returned to its original Regency splendour.

If you’re looking to put a creative edge into your shopping, Brighton Lanes offer a shopper’s paradise of independent shops and boutiques.   Once the heart of the fishing town Brighton Lanes’ historic quarter is a fabulous maze of twisting alleyways, offering an extraordinary mix of antiques and jewellery shops nestling alongside specialist contemporary and designer boutique fashion.

CHRISTMAS MAGIC

Join us for a magical journey on the Polar Express

Prepare to be surrounded by the magic and wonder of the Christmas season! As you and your family take in the festive decorations at THE POLAR EXPRESS™ Train Ride station, you can almost hear the faint sound of sleigh bells in the distance and the fun begins.

THE POLAR EXPRESS™ is waiting for you at the platform. Wait for the train Conductor to invite you and the other passengers to climb aboard, shouting “All aboooooard!”.   Anticipation builds as you step onto the Train to be escorted to your seat by the Chefs from the film.   Before long, scenes from the film come to life as dancing Chefs and Waiters arrive to serve cookies and hot chocolate.   The children are invited to engage these exciting characters who are eager to hear from the youngsters about what makes the Christmas season special to them.   While the hot chocolate lingers in your mouth and warms your tummy, you will listen as the story of The Polar Express is told in its entirety.   Chefs show pages from the beautifully illustrated book for the whole carriage to follow.   A smile grows on your face as you watch your child become absorbed in the wonderment of the story.

As your adventure continues, you notice other key elements of the story — both inside and outside your train — springing to life.   Watch and listen as another scene unfolds on-board before your eyes.

Upon arrival at the North Pole, keep your eyes peeled for Santa’s sleigh, a bag of toys and a giant Christmas tree. Watch out for Santa waving and, when the train stops, listen out for the carriage door to slam as Santa gets on board. After the train departs the North Pole for the return voyage home, you soon notice that the adventure isn’t over. Santa appears in your midst to present each passenger with their very own “First Gift of Christmas”, a silver bell from his sleigh.

Thinking back to the story, you might like to remind the children to check their pockets for holes!

Chefs on board lead the passengers in singing favourite Christmas Carols as the train heads back to Dereham Station.   Here passengers depart the train and make their way to the great gift shop with a range of gifts from toys, to Exclusive Polar Express Merchandise.

We encourage our guests, young and old to wear pyjamas just as in the Film.   Children love it and if you can persuade our older guests, Mums, Dads, Granny and Grandpa to also join in, the atmosphere in the train comes alive for a truly magical experience!

This is where your participation in the story of The Polar Express comes to an end.   However, our hope for your family is that your Christmas season has been enriched and memories from your experience will endure for years to come.

These are Premium tickets that includes Hot Chocolate, ceramic Polar Express mug, and a little bell. A lovely keepsake of a wonderful trip.

EVENING PERFORMANCE

War Horse is an unforgettable theatrical experience which takes audiences on an extraordinary journey from the fields of rural Devon to the trenches of First World War France.   Based on the beloved novel by Michael Morpurgo, this powerfully moving and imaginative drama, filled with stirring music and songs, is a show of phenomenal inventiveness.

At its heart are astonishing life-sized horses by South Africa’s Handspring Puppet Company, who bring breathing, galloping, charging horses to thrilling life on stage.

At the outbreak of World War One, Joey, young Albert’s beloved horse, is sold to the Cavalry and shipped to France.   He’s soon caught up in enemy fire, and fate takes him on an extraordinary journey, serving on both sides before finding himself alone in No Man’s Land.   Albert, who remained on his parents’ Devon farm, cannot forget Joey.   Though still not old enough to enlist, he embarks on a treacherous mission to find Joey and bring him home.

Simply Red

Location: Utilita Arena BIRMINGHAM

Date: Saturday 4th October 2025

Price: £100 Per Person (Price includes Coach Travel and Concert Ticket)

EVENING PERFORMANCE

Get ready to celebrate the remarkable legacy of one of the UK’s most treasured bands.

Iconic soul and pop band Simply Red today earmark their forthcoming 40th anniversary by announcing an incredibly special UK & Ireland arena tour coming to Utilita Arena Birmingham on the 4th of  October 2025.

“Simply Red are turning 40!   We’re looking forward to marking this special milestone with you all in 2025 on our UK tour” says Mick Hucknall.   “Fans can expect to hear all their favourite Simply Red tracks from 1985 to the present, and enjoy a memorable night celebrating the incredible journey that we’ve been on together over the past four decades.”

Few bands have enjoyed the success and longevity of Simply Red.   With over 60 million albums sold worldwide, five UK #1 albums, 1.8 billion streams across streaming platforms worldwide, and over 1 million YouTube subscribers,   Simply Red remain one of the UK’s most successful and well-loved bands. Their 1991 classic Stars was the best-selling album for two years running in Britain and Europe, and all 13 of Simply Red’s studio albums, including their latest release ‘Time’, have been UK Top 10’s.

Mick Hucknall formed Simply Red in 1985 working-class Manchester, and enjoyed early success with first single ‘Money’s Too Tight To Mention’ and the Brit Award-nominated album ‘Picture Book’ (the first of 13 nominations, and 3 Brit Award wins).   This was followed by a decade of superstardom and global hits.   Today Simply Red continue to sell out tours across the globe.   Their live show is renowned for its exceptional quality, with Mick Hucknall long-established as one of the great vocalists of contemporary music.

To celebrate this impressive 40-year milestone, Simply Red head back out on the road in 2025, telling the musical story of Simply Red so far – from ‘Picture Book’ to ‘Time’, and everything in between.
