Our annual main brochure for 2024 is out now

 

  

We pride ourselves on the breadth of subject areas and destinations that our tours feature, and our 2024 programme is no exception to this. Tour Director Imogen Corrigan will teach groups how to ‘read’ a church from an architectural and social point of view, with fine examples to be found in the Romney Marshes, Norfolk and Suffolk. Elsewhere, our natural history tours investigate landscapes in Sardinia, Extremadura and Crete from top to bottom - from sweeping mountain panoramas to delicate plant and insect life.

 

We look forward to classic itineraries that take in some of the most famous views in the world - from the dramatic sites atop the Athenian Acropolis, to the awe-inspiring colours along the Silk Road in Uzbekistan. Our perennially popular tour to the Mozart Festival in Salzburg sits alongside a return to the beauties of the River Seine on a delightful spring cruise.

 

Highly anticipated too are some brand new itineraries. A group will have the chance to see some of the finest examples of American and European art housed in galleries in Philadelphia, Baltimore and Washington with art historian Sarah Burles. Later in the year, our tour to Rajasthan promises exquisite art and architecture on visits to the Taj Mahal and the temple complex of Ranakpur, with specially-selected accommodation in luxuriously restored havelis.

 

Looking further ahead, we have several exciting destinations planned for 2025, including a tour taking a look at the varied geology and natural landscapes of Iceland.

 

We hope you enjoy browsing what we have to offer, and hope to welcome you on your next tour with us soon.
