Shearings has introduced tours based at hotels in Southend-on-Sea, Kingston-Upon-Hull and Darlington.
The coach touring company has added 38 UK holidays to its 2023 programme , which brings the total number of UK breaks on offer to over 100 for 2023.
The new five or eight-day tours either feature new destinations, have a new itinerary, a new hotel, or have new attractions added.
The Isle of Skye, Tobermory, Rochester and Blandford Forum are new excursion destinations. The trip to the Isle of Skye features on a Scottish Highlands tour, with a full day excursion to Scotland’s second largest island.
It’s also a first appearance for the picture-postcard town of Tobermory on the Isle of Mull, featured on a tour based in Oban, Scotland’s favourite West Highland resort.
Blandford Forum is a new optional excursion on the Weymouth, Subtropical Abbotsbury and Dorset Charms tour, whilst time to explore Rochester is included on the new destination, Southend-on-Sea, itinerary.
Completely new attractions include an excursion to Brighton’s i360 with its views across to the Isle of Wight; a ‘Call The Midwife’ tour visiting Chatham, where scenes from the popular TV show were filmed; and an excursion to the huge aquarium, The Deep in Hull.
Other attractions featured in the excursion programme for the first time are York Minster, Buckingham Palace, a trip to the ‘The Enchanted Forest’ sound and light show in Scotland’s Faskally Woods, and a vintage cruise and cream team on the famous Dorset Queen.
All tours include coach travel with local joining points, specially chosen accommodation, breakfast, dinner and excursions, with prices starting at £239pp for a short break.
Leger Shearings Group’s Head of Retail Sales, Ashley Dellow, said: “It seems the British public can’t get enough of their UK holidays – the overseas travel restrictions certainly created a taste for them and that shows no sign of slowing down. Our product team has been very busy creating new UK tours, and travel agents will find lots of new inspiration to sell to even their most avid repeat coach holiday fans!”
