A weekend theatre break in London | Newmarket Holidays

Newmarket Holidays is famed for its fun-filled London theatre breaks. All you have to do is choose your favourite show, and hop on a coach or train down to London. There are over twenty top West End shows for you to select from, including a number of popular new productions as well as several classics. This is a two-day weekend break, which is ideal if you want to fit in a quick little escape before the work-week rolls around once again. It includes accommodation in a four-star hotel, as well as dinner, dancing, and of course, tickets to a West End show of your choosing.

On your first day, you’ll have some free time to relax and catch your breath before the show begins. You will then be brought to the matinee performance, and returned to the hotel afterwards, by coach. Upon your arrival at the hotel after the show, you’ll need to check in to your room. Dinner – a delicious, hearty three-course meal – will be served later in the evening. After you’ve had your fill, there will be a ‘dinner disco’, at which you can dance the night away.

The following day, you can explore the capital at your own pace, taking in the sights and perhaps doing a little shopping too. From the luxurious Fortnum and Mason to the endless department stores and boutiques on Oxford Street, there really is something for everyone in this city. You may also want to visit a few of London’s most famous attractions while you’re here too: the London Eye, Big Ben or Buckingham Palace are all within easy reach.

This break from Newmarket Holidays offers tremendous value for money. The price which you pay includes a ticket for the matinee performance of a West End show, as well as the three-course meal which you will enjoy on the first day of your trip. It also includes one night’s bed and breakfast in either a double or twin-bedded room in the elegant Thistle Hotel. Coach travel, and the services of the tour manager, are also covered by the total price.

Newmarket Holidays | The Popularity of German Markets

All across the UK, in the weeks leading up to Christmas, German markets pop up in the centres of many cities. They bring with them a great sense of traditionalism and have become very popular with tourists. There are, however, plenty of opportunities to visit Germany during the festive period with organised tour companies, such as Newmarket Holidays, who provide a great way of seeing these traditional markets in situ.

Newmarket HolidaysThe native German markets are particularly spectacular, they have all the attractions that make them so popular in the UK, and many of the larger markets also contain live entertainment or rides. The little wooden huts that tout anything from handmade jewellery and ornaments to quintessentially German cakes and confectionaries stand next to ice rinks, and in the town of Worms there is even a living nativity scene. Christmas on the continent is a world entirely of its own when compared to the gaudy, but very marketable, American-style modern Christmas.

One of the most scenic ways to enjoy the wide variety of attractive German markets at Christmas is to travel along the famous waterways of the country. Many local tours are available, but it is also possible to book a river cruise with UK tour operators like Newmarket Holidays, that will have planned itineraries so that travellers can enjoy the majesty of the riverside towns and markets without having to worry about getting themselves around.

A number of the most popular German markets are along the Rhine River: Worms contains the living nativity scene, and Speyer holds the ice rinks, but travellers can also visit the Trier, which is one of Germany’s oldest cities. The German market there is held every year right in front of the impressive cathedral. Further north along the Rhine, festive visitors will find the city of Cologne, which boasts six different Christmas markets, each with their own individual character. There’s the fairytale market, and the harbour market, which has 80 stalls shaped like sails. The many options are sure to offer something to suit the tastes of even the most discerning visitor of the German markets.

While German markets in this country can be exciting and provide an alternative to the usual Christmas hustle, a holiday with a company like Newmarket Holidays, gives visitors the chance to experience, with ease, the authenticity and tradition of a festive celebration that has been exported to the UK.

Newmarket Holidays | British Travel Awards

Up until September 30th 2013, seasoned travellers will be able to vote in the British Travel Awards (BTA). Visitors to the site can decide which companies they believe have given the best experience in a variety of holiday categories from holidays, to individual locations to method of transport.

Newmarket HolidaysThe British Travel Award is a prestigious title that any holiday company, like Newmarket Holidays, who won the Best Coach Holiday Operator Award in 2011 can proudly display in their office or on their website. Many well-known brands and media outlets are affiliated with the process, and as a result winners of a particular category can see that their company will gain even greater prestige. However, the BTA are not tied to stakeholders or any one particular travel publication. Because of this, there is not a panel of travel experts behind the scenes guiding the choices of each category to a particular vested interest. All results are natural and come from the votes of actual holidaymakers.

The process is quick and easy, taking no more than 30 minutes to complete, including the BTA’s TravelVision Survey. This survey provides information on the demographics of the awards, and gives a clear indication that the voters are seasoned holidaymakers. With two-thirds of voters aged over fifty, the results show that travel companies can reach those with a higher income and more freedom by taking part in the BTA.

There are several categories to choose from, covering companies who specialise in particular destinations or a particular form of transport. Voters on the British Travel Awards website will be able to pick and choose which categories to vote in and they can log as many times as they need to before the end of September if they feel they need to alter their vote.

On the British Travel Awards website, potential voters can view the lists of previous winners in order to quickly establish which category their particular favourite might be in. Newmarket Holidays, who won the Best Tour Operator to Italy Award in 2012 for example, can clearly be seen. This aids not only in the speed with which voters can complete the survey, but also provides a good reference point for picking a new company to engage with when booking a future holiday.
