Bath – Sunday 30th April 2017
One of the most architecturally beautiful cities in the UK, there’s something for everyone.

Liverpool – Sunday 7th May 2017
Spend time at this fabulous city, the centre of maritime, cultural and sporting excellence. Its unrivalled architecture and heritage including its world-famous waterfront, itself named as a UNESCO World

Heritage Site, is complimented by more listed buildings and monuments than any other UK city outside London which reinforces the city’s reputation as a place of true aesthetic excellence. The heart of the city has a fantastic range of shops, from independent eateries to one-of-a-kind shops.

London Long Day – Tuesday 9th May 2017
A hassle-free way to explore the capital, approximately 9 hours free time will be allowed in London. Maybe explore one of London’s top attractions or simply enjoy the city’s top shopping hotspots. Whatever you choose to do, we propose to set down/pick up in a central location on Park Lane, near to Marble Arch.

York – Saturday 27th May 2017
Feel like you’re taking a walk through history on our day trip to York. Explore the traffic-free centre within the ancient city walls and walk along the cobbled streets of The Shambles. Award-winning attractions include the York Minster, one of the most beautiful Gothic cathedrals, or Castle Museum (admission extra) where you can walk through the lifelike replicas of Victorian and Edwardian streets.

Following its smash hit run at the West End, Bill Kenwright’s production is set to thrill audiences once again this year. It tells the story of Eva Peron, following her journey from humble beginnings through to extraordinary wealth which ultimately lead her to be heralded as the spiritual leader of the nation by the Argentine people.

Inspired by the smash hit multi-million selling albums of the same name, the story charts the talented young musicians Norman and Bobby in 1961 and features some of the greatest hit songs of the rock ‘n’ roll era. With teenage romances seamlessly weaving with the old classics, it is a truly timeless show of pure nostalgia.

Wonderland the Musical – Wednesday 19 July 2017
This adaptation of Lewis Carroll’s ‘Alice’s Adventures in and ‘Through the Looking Glass’ is making its UK premiere. The new production is a timely story of love in all its forms and about the power of everyday magic in our lives, including catchy songs from Frank Wildhorn, the writer of pop hits including Whitney Houston’s ‘Where Do Broken Hearts Go?’.
