Whether as a by-product of the financial squeeze or simply a realisation of the treasures waiting to be unearthed closer to home, we’ve witnessed an uptake in the number of groups booking UK trips for 2010. Each year we arrange quite a few tours on the domestic front, the majority of which focus either on British stately homes and gardens (both public and private) or on visits to some of the UK’s leading provincial galleries and museums, often in the company of a curator. The familiar hallmarks of our European tours such as first-rate guides and lecturers, little-known and crowd-free visits as well as an excellent choice of hand-picked, centrally located hotels are also key features of our UK itineraries. A prime example of such is a tour to Norfolk which many of our groups have enjoyed; the itinerary encompasses a mix of the illustrious (such as the magnificent house and gardens at Sandringham) as well as less-celebrated but equally rewarding visits such as the Walpole Houses and Holkham Estate with its magnificent collection of fine and decorative art.
