Music, flowers, food and drink feature in Greatdays’ new 2020 Group Travel Guide…

The comprehensive guide gives details of more than 100 UK tours and nearly 100 continental European holidays and Christmas market short breaks:

• In the UK, ‘Kent Grape and Grain’ offers an opportunity for groups to learn how the county’s unique micro-climate allows winemakers to create something special.
• ‘Music Cities of the North’ reveals the musical heritage of Liverpool and Manchester, while ‘Restoration Manchester’ goes behind the scenes at the remarkable Gothic edifice of Gorton Monastery and the equally fascinating Greater Manchester Police Museum.
• ‘Lincoln Aviation Heritage’ includes a visit to the recently opened International Bomber Command Centre near Lincoln, while ‘Coventry City of Culture 2021’ offers a sneak peak at this hidden gem before it takes the limelight in 2021.
‘Brussels, Beer and Bluebells’ combines the Belgian capital with a visit to Hallerbos Forest, little known to UK groups, but famous in Belgium for its carpet of bluebells.
• Staying in Belgium, the ‘Beautiful Belgian Ardennes’ tour now includes the opportunity to visit sights associated with the WWII Battle of the Bulge, including the Bastogne War Museum and the imposing Mardasson Memorial.

Commenting on the new guide, Paul Beaumont, Greatdays executive director, says: “Throughout the year, members of the Greatdays team are out and about, visiting hotels, destinations and visitor attractions, and trying out new suppliers. That experience is used to put together new tours and to enhance traditional favourites. As always, the guide is very much a starting point. We are always happy to tailor our itineraries to suit the specific requirements of coach operators and group travel organisers.”
