Riviera Travel launches new collection of UK Holidays for 2021

Riviera Travel has come up with a brand new collection of UK tours for 2021.

The new collection consists of seven tours; four itineraries with a cultural and historic focus, and three ‘Walk and Discover’ holidays, designed to showcase UK’s scenic landscapes, which can be appreciated on foot.

The destinations include Cornwall, Norfolk, the Lake District, North Yorkshire, North Wales, Northern Ireland, and the Scottish Highlands & Skye.

Each small group tour will have 25 guests, who will stay in hand-picked hotels bearing resemblence to the personality of the area, such as the Maids Head Hotel in Norwich, which is steeped in more than 800 years of history. 

Guests can enjoy an iconic train journey from Fort William to Mallaig, or sample the finest cider at a family run farm in the glorious Cornish countryside. Each tour will be accompanied by the tour managers and local guides.

All the tours are being offered on a ‘tour only’ basis, to give customers the flexibility to travel how they choose. To cater to people who would prefer to arrive by train or private transfers, Riviera has also launched a new ‘Travel Concierge’ service with bespoke travel arrangements for each guest, which is available across Riviera’s full range of cruises and tours. Prices for the five day tours start from just £499, with departures between March-October in 2021. 

Belfast, Giant’s Causeway & Mount Stewart – five days, priced from £529

This tour highlights Northern Ireland’s capital with visits to the Titanic Experience, Antrim’s coastal road, the Giants Causeway, the gardens of Mount Stewart and a whiskey tasting at the famous Bushmill’s.

Cornwall – Falmouth Bay & St Ives – five days, priced from £549

Visitors can explore Cornwall with this varied tour, which provides them an idea about what really gives this part of England a distinct sense of identity. Views of stunning coastlines, beautiful gardens and picturesque fishing villages and coastal towns– as well as its traditional food and drink, await the holidaymakers.

Norfolk – Royal Sandringham & the Broads – five days, prices starting from £499

Visitors can delve deeper into the history of Norfolk with this one, with beautiful coastlines and navigable Broads. The Medieval heart of Norwich, the Sandringham Estate and the restored Victorian Poppy Line train are some famous tourist attractions here.

Scottish Highlands & Skye – six days, prices starting from £749

Visitors can take in the beauty of the River Ness, as well as the wildlife of Cairngorms National Park, ride the world-renowned Fort William to Mallaig train, enjoy a whisky tasting, explore the enchanting Isle of Skye and go Nessie spotting on a Loch cruise.

Will Sarson, Riviera’s head of strategy and innovation said, “Over the past few months we have been actively engaging with our customers to understand exactly how their holiday needs have changed. One of the most common suggestions was the desire to explore the UK. In fact, 65% of our customers told us that they would love to explore Britain with us, with almost 50% saying they plan to book a UK holiday in 2021. Therefore, we are delighted to unveil our brand new collection of UK breaks. We have gone to great lengths to ensure our customers can enjoy our same award-winning escorted tour experience a little closer to home. With well-balanced itineraries that blend fascinating National Trust visits, scenic journeys, historic experiences and not to mention a little bit of indulgence too, we can’t wait to welcome our guests.”
