Travel Tuesday A to Z

America to Bruges and beyond – as easy as ABC

T

HE next few weeks will see us bring you an A-Z of wonderful holidays taking in fantastic countries around the world from incredible spots in the UK to far-flung destinations of your dreams, and everything in between! This week it is literally as easy as ABC… So let’s start with that US trip to discover America’s glorious western states on a fantastic-value escorted tour. Californian sunshine, stunning Pacific coastlines and visits to three of America’s most iconic cities – cosmopolitan San Francisco, starstruck Los Angeles and glitzy Las Vegas – as well as to the awesome Grand Canyon – make this the trip of a lifetime. Maybe you like something closer to home - well you’ll be very satisfied with trips we have lined up to Bruges, where you can unwind with a relaxing few days on our escorted tour. This Belgian city is famed for its picturesque canals and medieval char m. Or how about Berlin, Dresden, Meissen and a visit to the infamous Colditz Castle prisoner of war camp. The outpouring of joy and energy that accompanied the fall of the Ber-

lin Wall, now over 20 years ago, has rekindled Berlin’s legendary vibrancy and the city throbs with new life. Dresden is perhaps more sedate yet equally revelling in its renewed splendour. After severe bomb damage, it has now been almost completely restored. Another face of Germany is medieval Meissen, where the most stunningly beautiful porcelain is crafted by highly skilled artisans in the only factory in Europe where the processes are still completed entirely by hand. And so on to ‘C’ and the Highlights of Catalonia. Barcelona, the self-confident and progressive capital of Catalonia is a tremendous place to visit. Probably the most prosperous city in the country, it has a sophistication and cultural dynamism way ahead of the rest of Spain, which is so strong you can feel it just walking around. Catalonia also boasts the best food in Spain. Well, that is what the Catalans themselves tell you and to be fair they perhaps have a point - but the only real test is to come with us and see for yourself.

AMERICA’S GOLDEN WEST Departing March to May, September and October 2014 The glamour of Las Vegas, the awesome beauty of the Grand Canyon - carved over millennia - and the sun-kissed towns and cities of the California coast - including sparkling ‘LA’ and beautiful San Francisco - are all combined in this wonderful escorted holiday crammed full of unforgettable highlights.

EPB-E01-S3

The holiday begins with a three-night stay in the stunning ‘city by the Bay’, where you may ‘leave your heart’, but in exchange for some wonderful memories. Follow the coast south, to spend three nights in Los Angeles - home to the stars of the silver screen - before heading to the extraordinary ‘oasis’ of Las Vegas, where improbably spectacular palaces of entertainment rise up from the floor of the Nevada Desert, and from where - in contrast – you’ll then take in one of nature’s equally eye-popping greatest works, the Grand Canyon. With a host of included and optional excursions taken in the company of a friendly tour manager, and a scenic journey along California’s wild and beautiful Pacific coast road via exquisite Carmel-by-the-Sea and Steinbeck’s Monterey, this tremendous value holiday is one of our most popular of all - and it’s no wonder!

Travel Tuesday UK BREAKS

See glory of Britain in full bloom at Chelsea Flower Show

T

HE Chelsea Flower Show 2014 takes place next May. That will be its 101st year during which time it has been staged in the grounds of the famous Chelsea Hospital – save, that is, for interruptions caused by two world wars! It is, unquestionably Britain’s most prestigious flower show. It also boasts close associations with the royal family, who attend the opening day every year. Staging the event requires almost a month on site building the vast exhibition, and exhibitors run into the hundreds. And you can join us on a trip to this wonderful, visually stunning, annual event. But if it’s stately homes you like, then the trip to Chatsworth House, one of the UK’s best attractions, should do the trick. It’s a treasure trove of history and artefacts in the beautiful surroundings of the Peak District, and more of the house is open to visitors than ever before. Our two-day break includes entrance to the House and Gardens, one night dinner, bed and breakfast, as well as a tour of the Peak District – all at a fraction of the cost! Then, of course, you could always

head further west from Bristol to the dazzling beaches, quaint fishing villages, flourishing gardens, delicious ice-cream and balmy temperatures of Cornwall. We take you to favourite places and hidden gems as seen on the ITV series Cornwall with Caroline Quentin and Doc Martin which stars Martin Clunes, including the world famous port of Falmouth, the pretty resorts of St Ives and Penzance, and a 26 acre sub-tropical paradise. So join us for a relaxing break along Cornwall’s beautiful Riviera coastline. Or opt for our Clovelly and North Devon Delights, enjoying a delightful mix of picturesque villages, remote moorland and spectacular coastline that borders the mighty Atlantic Ocean. On our four day break you can enjoy this stunning scenery as we visit some of the most beautiful areas of Cornwall, including the privately owned village of Clovelly, which is set in a steep hillside and known around the world for its history and beauty. We also spend time in the seaside villages of Appledore, Lynton and Lynmouth, and there’s the chance to see the Royal Horticultural Society’s Rosemoor Garden.
