Happy St Patrick’s Day!

Ireland is an all-time favourite destination with plenty of opportunity to put together fantastic resort and touring itineraries. When thinking about what is so great about the Emerald Isle there are so many things to choose from – countryside, coastline, history, culture, literature, music & dance, Guinness, Irish whiskey and sports – however the one thing that overwhelmingly wins is the people. From bustling capital Dublin to the smallest village you are always guaranteed a warm welcome.

Let Us Remember Them.

One of my proudest moments at Shearings Holidays was my Grandad’s picture featuring on the back of a coach promoting their battlefields programme which I had worked on as Product Manager. The other black and white photos are genuine family photos from World War I. It was a privilege to follow in their footsteps recently on a visit to the battlefields recently with Visit Flanders.

Fantastic couple of days at a bustling Workd Travel Market . Great to catch up with old friends, business contacts and colleagues. Lots of news to catch up on and share.

Happy Halloween. Children and parents, dressed up in fabulous costumes, will no doubt enjoy trick-or-treating this evening and calling at neighbours houses adorned with pumpkins, skeletons, spiders webs and even more imaginative decorations.

Hubble, bubble, toil and trouble..… Halloween originates from a Celtic festival and the occasion has many links to witchcraft.

This year 2020 Travel Partners has put together several witch-themed day trips & tours including Pendle Witch Country and Essex Witch Trail, concentrated around the Colchester area. Knowledgeable and enthusiastic guides accompany groups and recount fascinating tales along the way of witches, ghosts and legends.

2020 Travel Partners can provide a selection of ‘spooky’ day trips, weekend and short breaks for coach operators throughout the UK. Please contact [email protected] at 2020 Travel Partners for more details.

Last week 2020 Travel Partners was in Bruges for the 2022 Flanders Travel Forum. Many thanks to Visit Flanders for arranging such a well-organised and enjoyable event. It was great to catch up with so many industry colleagues and friends as well as meeting new connections. Along with a guided walking tour of Ghent, there were excursions in and around Bruges and a chance to visit the nearby Flanders Battlefields. An interesting and relaxing highlight was attending a lie down piano concert.

Last week 2020 Travel Partners celebrated two years in business. And what better places to have been in than on fam trips to Belgium and France.

This year has certainly brought a number of challenges - professional and personal – although this has not dulled any ambition to succeed. There have equally been many positives during the year but securing a first river cruise group recently has been a definite highlight. Huge thanks and gratitude go to my wonderful coach operator clients, supportive industry supplier partners, lovely family and friends, especially Andrew Sowry, all without whom 2020 Travel Partners would simply not exist.

A glass, or two, has certainly been raised to look forward to what 2023 has in store and working on some exciting projects in the coming months.

Happy Swiss National Day to all my friends and industry colleagues. What makes this wonderful country such a great holiday destination?

Switzerland’s faultless transport system of trains, buses and cable cars complements coach holiday tours perfectly and allows access to traffic-free towns such as Wengen and Zermatt. The Glacier Express, with its iconic viaducts, is an ever-popular journey through landscapes unreachable by coach. The Swiss Alpine Mountain scenery allows for an all- year-round destination with winter sports galore, a winter wonderland for the less active, tranquil lakes and spa resorts for total relaxation, and summer. Let’s not forget the bustling cities of Zurich, Geneva, Lugano and Lausanne which reflect the country’s differing characteristics contributed to by France, Germany & Italy.

Choose from city breaks, touring itineraries, rail themed tours, river cruises, mountain resorts, spa resorts, gourmet tours and activity breaks. Contact 2020 Travel Partners for more information on 07979 818763 or [email protected]

Happy Yorkshire Day to all my friends and industry colleagues! Whilst not being Yorkshire born and bred, my maiden name, Hardcastle, has family roots linked to Yorkshire and gives me a close affinity with this beautiful region. There is a seemingly endless list of reasons to programme a Yorkshire coach tour - stunning coastline dotted with popular seaside resorts, breath-taking scenery of the Moors and Dales; classic stately homes and formal gardens; and shop ‘til you drop at Yorkshire’s bustling cities such as Leeds and York with their atmospheric markets during the festive season.

Yorkshire is the setting for all-time favourite TV programmes such as Emmerdale, Last of the Summer Wine, Open All Hours and Heartbeat; as well as a new series of All Creatures Great & Small coming to your screen soon. Going further back in time literary greats such as the Bronte Sisters and Bram Stoker were inspired by the surrounding Yorkshire landscapes to write their masterpieces. Bradford’s wealth of cultural diversity has rightfully earned it the title of the UK’s 2025 city of culture.

Yorkshire is full of gourmet delights. No roast dinner is complete without Yorkshire pudding and finished off with a tasty Rhubarb crumble. Who can resist an afternoon tea at Betty’s famous tearooms in Harrogate? Which is your favourite Licorice Allsort? There would be no adventures for Wallace & Gromit without Wensleydale cheese and no KitKat breaks without Rowntree’s legacy.

Having worked in coach tourism for the best part of 20 years, I am fascinated by the history of the industry. Whilst having a tidy up I came across a memento from my days of working at Shearings Holidays - a book written by Eric Ogden in 1990 recalling the company’s heritage. Since setting up 2020 Travel Partners it always interests me to hear about the family background of my coach operator clients. Whilst many can trace their roots back through several generations to the 1940’s & 50’s, there are some operators that can go even further back in time to the 1920’s. Undoubtedly the industry has come a long way from the humble beginnings of the open top charabanc to the sophisticated design (and price tag) of modern-day coaches.
Which UK coach operator can claim the longest standing heritage?
