Newmarket Holidays / A ‘Wicked’ Weekend Break

Since 1983, the name Newmarket Holidays has been synonymous with great value-for-money guided holidays and escorted short breaks. Over the past thirty years, Newmarket Holidays have expanded their portfolio in order to offer their customers an even wider variety of choices than ever before, from day trips to sporting or musical events right through to three-week trips of a lifetime to Australia or the Far East. Among the more popular deals offered by Newmarket Holidays are the selection of theatre breaks to London’s West End. Each Newmarket Holidays trip includes return travel by either coach or rail depending on the break chosen, accommodation in a carefully selected three- or four-star hotel, tickets to the show of the customer’s choice, and the services of a Newmarket Holidays Tour Guide throughout the duration of the trip. Customers selecting the Newmarket Holidays Dine and Dance theatre trip will also experience an extravagant dinner and disco at their four-star hotel, after enjoying a matinee performance.

Newmarket HolidaysAll the prices quoted on the Newmarket Holidays website include the price of a standard ticket to see the hit musical, ‘Wicked’. Newmarket Holidays customers can choose from many shows being performed in the West End, and upgrade to a top-tier ticket for an additional supplement. Coach or rail travel to London is arranged by Newmarket Holidays from a series of national locations and all transfers to London City Centre are included where applicable.

‘Wicked’ tells the back story of the Wicked Witch of the West as first encountered in Frank L. Baum’s ‘The Wizard of Oz’. Based on the book by Gregory Maguire, ‘Wicked’ portrays Elphaba as a misunderstood rebel dealing with a lifetime of prejudice after being born with an unfortunate greenish tinge to her skin. She protests against the domination of the Oz ministry and the mistreatment, banishment and murder of talking Animals. The show tells the tale of Elphaba’s school days, including her reluctant yet burgeoning friendship with the airheaded Glinda, who will one day become the Good Witch of the North. While essentially a story about friendship, this tale has many darker and more political elements and should appeal to both children and adults alike.

Newmarket Holidays – Faraway Tours to Northern India

India holds a mystique and allure that has always captivated travellers. With a northern landscape dominated by grasslands, streams and lakes, that are home to a variety of fauna, Newmarket Holidays knows that the area around Delhi is the perfect place for going on safari. Ranthambhore National Park is a flagship of India’s conservation programme and home to endangered Tigers. A Newmarket Holidays tour of this area offers a chance to visit the park and see them firsthand.

As if to emphasise the diversity of India, the same tour also includes a rickshaw ride around Old Delhi. Newmarket Holidays tours provide a knowledgeable tour guide to offer an expert insight into the delights of the vibrant city, and a step back in time to the colonial days of the British Raj, whose impressive buildings dominate New Delhi. Newmarket Holidays customers are then whisked away by a comfortable coach to enjoy the majesty of Jaipur to the west, known as the Pink City.

Newmarket HolidaysNewmarket Holidays knows that customers like to experience the exotic, and so have arranged for a visit to the beautiful Fort at Amber, by jeep or the more traditional transport of elephant. A tour of Jaipur, including the ancient astronomical observatory known as Jantar Mantar is exquisitely planned by Newmarket Holidays tour experts. Keen not to miss any of the primary attractions, the Newmarket Holidays tour also includes a visit to the 18th Century Palace of the Winds. Here, Newmarket Holidays holidaymakers can imagine royalty surveying important processions passing by, from the anonymity of the numerous windows and screened balconies.

The Newmarket Holidays tour of northern India continues with a trip to the ancient village of Abhaneri. Newmarket Holidays travellers can see for themselves the amazing Chand Baori, a perfectly preserved example of a step-well. These innovative constructions are designed to facilitate the drawing of water from the ground, and are unique to India. Whilst in Abhaneri, Newmarket Holidays customers can also visit the graceful temple built to honour Harshat Mata, the Goddess of Joy and Happiness. Accommodation in a comfortable, yet rustic lodge allows Newmarket Holidays customers to experience more of the real India, and a chance to sit back and enjoy a cookery demonstration from an Indian Chef.

Saving the best until last, the Newmarket Holidays tour visits Agra, the famous City of Love and home to the incomparable Taj Mahal. Newmarket Holidays customers can wander among the royal pavilions and courtyards of the glorious Agra Fort before getting a first glimpse of the awe-inspiring beauty of the Taj Mahal itself towards sunset. A return visit to the Taj Mahal by horse-drawn carriage at sunrise the following day is a magical and fitting end to this experience-rich Newmarket Holidays tour.

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.
