Here at Brightwater, we know that great value for money is very important to you when choosing your next vacation. As always, we’ve been listening to your feedback about the rising cost of travel and decided to create a brand new range of UK-based itineraries that we are calling our ‘Essentials’ collection.

Now that many of us are returning to our much-missed vacation, we may find that we’re facing rising prices, but our new range of trips should help you to get around this issue as they start from just $555pp for a four-day break. What’s more, three of our new tours have no single supplements to pay at all and the remaining seven all have low single supplements from just $85pp – ideal for the solo and budget-conscious traveller!

Our 10 brand new itineraries can take you from the coastlines of Cornwall to the stunning Norfolk Broads – for less. How? Well, our Essentials vacations are more stripped back in terms of what they include and offer more freedom than our classic range. They also don’t include the services of a Tour Manager, but your driver will of course be on hand to ensure your smooth transfer and to point out areas of interest as we go.

Each vacation includes one day at leisure or the choice to join an optional excursion for an additional fee, which gives you the chance to control the pace of your break. Want to explore the local area in your own time? Fine by us! Fancy hopping on our coach to discover a garden or the historic sites to be found in a nearby city? That’s fine, too! These vacations also include all breakfasts and dinners throughout, but lunches will be up to you. So, whether you want to grab a quick sandwich on the go or would prefer to savour something a bit more special, it’s entirely your choice.

Among our new itineraries you will find a tour devoted to sites associated with William Shakespeare, a holiday in the Lake District that includes a cruise on Lake Windermere and a break that delves into the history of Hadrian’s Wall in this, it’s 1,900th anniversary year. We hope you enjoy browsing our new vacations and we can’t wait to welcome you.
