Art, History & Gardening Experience Days | Brightwater Holidays

Memorable days out with exclusive experiences

In a new venture for Brightwater Holidays, we are delighted to unveil our collection of Experience Days. While a full-length tour is always a treat, sometimes an immersive day out is enough to give us that sense of escapism a holiday offers. With this in mind, we are excited to announce that we have created a brand new range of Experience Days, many of which offer activities not normally available to the public. Others cater to the recent trend of people taking up new hobbies such as painting and gardening, which allows them to get closer to nature while improving their mental health and general well-being.


For the artistically inclined among us, we have some fantastic art experience days on offer. There are some hands-on, creative Experience Days available that include tutoring at the hands of professional painter, Mike Turpie. These events offer a chance for beginners to learn new skills and for more experienced painters to brush up on their watercolour technique in fabulous company! We also have an embroidery and embellishment day. 

Egyptian figures


For those fascinated by stories of the past, we are offering a chance to delve into the history of shipbuilding, trains and trams in Glasgow or a day out in Kent, where you can step back in time to ancient Egypt.

Threave Gardens


If you're looking to pick up some gardening tips, to learn more about trees and plants, or simply want to visit some of the UK's premier grounds, we have some great Garden Experience Days to choose from.
