Shearings adds to UK offering with new brochure
by Jessica Pook
Escorted touring company Shearings has published a dedicated UK brochure including 64 new tours.
The brochure is in response to the huge success of its 2021 UK tours and features over 200 tours with highlights such as RHA Flower Show Chelsea and RHS Wisely Gardens; Agatha Christie’s Torquay; Longleat, Bristol and Bath as well as Weymouth and Subtropical Abbotsbury Gardens.
Four new tours include mini-cruises: Torquay and Cruises of the English Riviera; Cruises of the Welsh Borders: Weymouth, Cruise and Steam Train and Shetland Mini-Cruise, Aberdeen and Royal Deeside.
For the first time the newly-launched ‘Signature Collection’ will be included in the brochure. These holidays follow the same escorted coach tour formula but feature luxurious accommodation ranging from contemporary hotels located in the heart of cities to historic buildings in countryside settings. Warner Hotels are included in the Signature Collection.
Also in the brochure are 35 self-drive hotel breaks, ideal for those who prefer the chance to explore some of the UK’s best driving routes at their own pace.
All tours include comfortable coach travel with local joining points, accommodation, breakfast and dinner and excursions - prices start at £219 for short breaks. All holidays can currently be secured for a £1 deposit with nothing to pay until six weeks before departure.
A five-day RHS Flower Show Chelsea and RHS Wisley Gardens tour is priced from £469pp whilst a five-day Agatha Christie’s Torquay tour offers a chance to explore Torre Abbey Gardens and learn more about Agatha Christie's Potent Plants, priced from £399pp.
Leger Shearings Group’s Head of Retail Sales, Ashley Dellow said: “2021 was certainly the year of the UK holiday and with some nervousness still surrounding overseas travel it looks like the demand is set to continue.
“Travel agents looking for inspiration will do well to check out Shearings’ new UK brochure featuring thousands of spectacular holidays in the UK’s most desirable destinations with lots of brand-new, different tours. The brochure can be viewed online or requested in hard copy from BP Trade Gate.”
