Don’t hurry, be happy with Grand UK Holidays

If it’s Wednesday, it must be Paris…
If you’re worried about escorted tours being a hectic dash around the highlights of the UK or Europe, then a leisurely trip with Grand UK Holidays may be the antidote.
The travel industry is seeing a new ‘go slow’ trend in the tours market, so you can forget the daily packing and unpacking, new hotels each night, hopping on and off tour buses…
Being an over-55s specialist, Grand UK offers itineraries which better suit more mature travellers and many of its tours are the ideal way to wind down and take things at a gentle pace.
Harold Burke, sales director, said: “Our clients like to take things at their own pace and we have found that the Channel Islands and Isle of Man holidays are ideal for those who want to pick and choose just how much they want to get out and about.
“Our Long Stay UK holidays have also been popular since we introduced them a couple of seasons ago – they offer incredible value for money for the over-55s and mean that folk can escape the household chores for several weeks of relaxing in one of our hotels and having the option of excursions if a Grand UK coach is at the hotel at the same time.”
On the Isle of Man, the operator features two Victorian Manx itineraries, which are seven-day holidays by coach, one departing this autumn and the other in spring.
Victorian Manx Magic Autumn includes three full-day excursions – Manx electric railway, Grove Museum of Victorian Life; Laxey & the Snaefell Mountain Railway; St John’s, Peel, Castletown & Port Erin – and is based at the Rutland Hotel, Douglas (£489pp).
The Victorian Manx Magic Spring tour also includes three full-day excursions –Manx electric railway, Ramsey & Peel; Isle of Man Steam railway, Port Erin & Castletown; Laxey & the Snaefell Mountain Railway (£449pp).
