Whatever the weather, our passion for travel shines on, and our love of discovering, exploring and learning about somewhere new is as strong as it’s ever been. A year unlike any other in Riviera’s history, we’ve certainly had our thinking caps on, and whilst we know you love travelling the world with us, we completely understand why you may want to explore closer to home in 2021.
With this in mind, we are very proud to unveil our brand new, exciting collection of UK tours to some of the most spectacular regions within our very own historic and beautiful country, so you can still enjoy everything you love about a Riviera holiday – just a little bit closer to home. So often we miss what‘s right under our noses, so let 2021 be the year you discover or even rediscover, holidaying in the UK – and why there’s no place quite like it.
Explore the magnificently rugged coastline and picture-postcard fishing villages of Cornwall, the unspoilt, tranquil beauty of the Norfolk Broads or the spectacular wilderness of the Scottish Highlands. Hear the echoes of Belfast’s turbulent past as you wander its historic streets, soak in the atmosphere of Norwich’s medieval heart and take an exhilarating ride on the Jacobite train along one of the most scenic steam railways in the world. Experience the magical Giant’s Causeway, the majestic splendour of Royal Sandringham and its exquisite estate or lose yourself in the enchanting Lost Gardens of Heligan. Our inspirational UK escorted tours collection, brand new for 2021, include the very best of Britain and Northern Island, the Riviera way.
Walk in the footsteps of our forebears as you uncover treasures of the British Isles on foot, with our inviting collection of brand new Walk & Discover holidays amidst some of the most scenic countryside in the world. See the iconic dramatic peaks of Snowdonia, be enchanted by the quirky charm of picturesque Portmeirion, the rugged meadows and clear waters of the Lake District or the romantically wild moors of North Yorkshire. Immerse yourself in the echoes of our own history as you wander the elegant streets of Harrogate, or the twisting cobbled lanes of York.
Enjoy everything you love about a Riviera Travel holiday here in the UK. True to form, our inspirational itineraries include a carefully tailored balance of included fascinating visits and tours and plenty of free time for independent exploration. Rediscover old haunts and make new discoveries through the fresh eyes of expert local guides whose insight and knowledge will reveal so much you never knew about our own history and culture.
Our smaller groups with a maximum of 25, will ensure the intimate sociable atmosphere of a typical Riviera holiday still pervades, but with a touch more exclusivity. You’ll never be kept waiting by a larger group, leaving more time to enjoy each destination to the full.
Our flexible travel arrangements allow you to make your own way there in a way to suit you. Whether you prefer to travel in your own car, by train, plane or take advantage of our hassle-free exclusive door-to-door service, it really is up to you. Our dedicated Travel Concierge teams are on hand to personally assist you with all your travel arrangements and anything else you might need.
Unwind at the end of each day in our excellent hand-picked four-star hotels which all provide the perfect base for a relaxing holiday. Carefully selected and well-located for exploring the area, they all have convenient parking and train stations nearby to ensure your journey is as stress-free as possible.
Even closer to home we all want a bit more reassurance right now. Our 100% COVID protection included as standard, ensures you can book and travel with complete confidence. You’ll be able to change your booking for free in 2020 too, and when you travel if you’re not satisfied by day 2, we’ll bring you home and with a refund. As always, when you book with Riviera Travel there are no hidden charges or unfair discounts and we promise you’ll always pay the best price – or we’ll refund the difference.
