Cultural and Short Breaks

Seek Beauty

A holiday doesn’t need to be lengthy to allow you to relax and forget about the daily grind, an inspiring short break can often be just as effective and a great opportunity to indulge a passion for culture.

The world is peppered with the marks of human history and, for those who are fascinated by the past, there is a massive range of holidays available. See the morning mist lift to reveal the terraces and houses of the Inca stronghold of Machu Picchu on the plateau beneath you. Marvel at the feat of engineering that connected the Roman desert city of Palmyra to a distant water supply, or feel a connection with ordinary Romans on reading their graffiti in Pompeii. Gain an insight into the Hapsburg Empire on a tour that takes in the glorious cities of Vienna, Prague and Budapest. Reflect on the turbulent history of Cambodia as you watch the sunset over the iconic temple complex at Angkor Wat. No matter which period captures your imagination, we’ll find a holiday that enables you to really connect with it.

If Art is what inspires you, then why not build a holiday around it. See for yourself why artists flocked to the Côte d’Azur or experience the clear, northern light of Delft, where every view carries an echo of Vermeer. Wander through the great galleries of Paris, Madrid or St Petersburg or tour Le Courbusier’s masterpieces of modernist architecture.

Europe has many top class festivals celebrating music, theatre and film. Ranging from Wagner in Bayreuth, Opera in Verona and Passion Plays in Oberammergau to Jazz in the medieval hill town of Perugia or the star-studded Cannes Film Festival. We can help you plan tickets, travel and accommodation. All you need do is enjoy the show!

Why not give your mind a break from the drudgery of work and seek out beauty in its many different forms.
