Golf

As many of our clients wish to play golf when they are here, we can offer a large number of excellent courses in the north west of England and North Wales areas.
There are 2 other Open Championship venues nearby – Royal Lytham and Royal Liverpool so if you wish to play these courses in July 2017, the message is book with us as early as possible as they will sell out by autumn 2016.

Golf

Many of our tours include just 1 or 2 days at the event and then guests move on to other areas of England, Scotland, Wales or Ireland, to play the great courses that are scattered all round our amazing country.

You will have heard of many of the big names – Royal Lytham & Royal Liverpool (mentioned above), Formby and in Scotland the likes of the 2016 venue Royal Troon, Trump Turnberry, The Old Course, Carnoustie, Kingsbarns, Castle Stuart, etc, but there are also lots of other great local courses to enjoy (that charge a lot less in green fees!)

Leisure

Perhaps you simply wish to spend a few days at The Open and then enjoy a visit to the city of London with its great attractions, world class restaurants and of course the famous west end shows.
