Grand UK Holidays Launches Winter 2014/15

Escorted tour specialist Grand UK Holidays has added more than 30 new holidays to its winter brochure, released early in response to demand for festive breaks.

The operator has already had several Christmas, New Year and Turkey & Tinsel breaks on sale as a new initiative within its summer 2014 brochure as many customers expressed a desire to book their festive treats well in advance.

The new options include Christmas escorted coach tours, New Year breaks, Turkey & Tinsel, Christmas markets, and themed holidays. Ten new Christmas holidays have been added, featuring popular resorts such as Morecambe, Chester and Blackpool and scenic locations such as Somerset and Kent. They cost from £319 per person for five days. Five debut New Year options are also available, from £299 for four days departing on December 30.

Customers can also prolong the festivities by booking a ‘Festive Combo’ which is available at hotels offering both Christmas and New Year holidays. For £20 per person per night, customers can combine a Christmas holiday with a New Year break.

As well as the extensive range of festive breaks, the new brochure also features autumn and spring holidays, with prices starting at £149 per person for four days. Themed holidays are increasingly popular and the operator has added breaks for fans of nostalgia, gardening, TV and film. They include Wartime on the Rails (£199 per person for four days), which visits the North Yorkshire Moors Railway for a World War II themed break, and the Norfolk Steam & Dads Army Collection (£299 per person for five days) which features the Dad’s Army Collection at Bressingham Steam Museum in Norfolk.

As well as the new tours, old favourites are featured, such as cards, dancing, bingo and bowling, and the annual reunion will take place again at the ever-popular Mill Rythe Holiday Village next February 2015 (costing £199 per person for five days).

All Grand UK trips are fully escorted by tour managers and include activities and entertainment designed to appeal to an older age group. In addition, there are no single supplements on mainland UK tours and the brochure highlights the hotels with lots of single rooms.
