Binoculars, opera glasses, a pair of walking boots, a pair of knitting needles, a book of poetry, a nosing glass — what do all these things have in common? If you said "nothing" you’d be right! But, as is the case in many a world-class collection, the charm in our Special Interest tours lies not in what they have in common, but in what makes them unique.

For the wanderers, we have our wonderful walking tours; for the steam aficionados, a series of spectacular trips by rail and sea; for culture vultures, a night (or afternoon) at the opera. Archaeologists, aurora borealis-chasers, whisky fanatics — come along and hop aboard, there’s something for all!

And now, with our 2018 tours, you can get even more. It is all about the little extras: the porterage, the drinks at dinner, the extra stars on your hotel. If you're travelling with us in 2018, prepare to get a lot more Brightwater for your buck.
