Culture Holidays

Part of the joy of travel is discovering the culture of a place - from its traditions and its people to its art, architecture, music, museums and more, and sometimes an escorted trip or tour can really help you to get under the skin of your chosen destination.

From getting to know some of the further reaches of Britain on an island hopping tour in Scotland to the cultural attractions and history of Eastern Europe's great cities, there are a wealth of different cultures within easy reach of the UK by public transport.

A quick hop across the channel and you can discover the treasures and fascinating World War I history of Flanders or spend time in an artisan's workshop in Florence on a cultural day tour.

These are just some of the wonderful options for a cultural holiday in the UK and Europe, featured below is our selection of the best holidays to experience what this culturally rich continent has to offer:
