Over the previous three years, Newmarket Holidays has been successful at the British Travel Awards, having won an award each year since 2011’s ceremony. That year, Newmarket Holidays won an award for being the Best Coach Holiday Operator – a significant win for Newmarket Holidays as a large part of the holidays that they offer are coach-trip style holidays. With many destinations available in the UK, Newmarket Holidays cover Yorkshire, Edinburgh and the Lake District to name just a few of the selections. Newmarket Holidays has also enjoyed a great deal of success in their coach trips to the continent, with many trips to France and the Netherlands proving very popular. To win the Best Coach Operator Award in 2011 must have been a source of pride for the company.

In 2012, Newmarket Holidays won the award for the Best Tour Operator to the Italian Peninsula and Malta from the British Travel Awards. There are many options available to Newmarket Holidays customers for travelling to Italy, so it comes as small surprise that the company won this award. Customers can take in the historic sights of trips to Pompeii, or while away their time on the banks of Lake Garda, with a holiday from Newmarket Holidays.

Last year, Newmarket Holidays won the prestigious award of Best Large Escorted Tours Holiday Company. This has come in recognition of the success that Newmarket Holidays has enjoyed. It is a testament to the hard work of the team at Newmarket Holidays that its customers  voted for it to win such a great award in the travel and tourism industry.

Newmarket HolidaysThe difference between Newmarket Holidays and many of their competitors is the fact that they do not just organise the trip; for most breaks, there is at least one member of the Newmarket Holidays team to make the experience as enjoyable as possible. These tour managers are trained to the highest standard in the Newmarket Holidays operating procedures, ensuring the smooth running of the holiday while at the same time acting as a guide to the destination. Tour managers are able to not only guide travellers on their holiday in terms of providing an itinerary, but they must know everything there is to know about the surrounding area. Without the tour managers, Newmarket Holidays trips would not be half as memorable.

There are many destinations available to customers of Newmarket Holidays, from trips to cities in the UK to long haul journeys that last three weeks on the other side of the globe. Each trip caters for different types of travellers and as such, the variety that Newmarket Holidays provide will ensure that there is something for everyone. This goes for the trips themselves. Because Newmarket Holidays are involved in the whole holiday from departure to return journey, they make sure that travellers will also have something exciting to do while they are on holiday.

In addition to all of this, Newmarket Holidays also differ in their response to customers once the holiday has come to an end and they are back at home. Newmarket Holidays offer an automatic email update service, offering customers new holidays and breaks without being too intrusive. The website for Newmarket Holidays will also prove useful to customers as they can peruse the site at their leisure and plan out their next holiday with the company.

British Pullman Day Trip by Newmarket Holidays

Newmarket Holidays

Step back in time to experience rail travel in the roaring 1920s, soaking in the atmosphere of the lovingly restored British Pullman. In days past, only the likes of royalty and film stars enjoyed the exquisite opulence of these trains, with their wood marquetry interiors, tables set with crystal and lustrous silver, and polished brass luggage racks. A part of the Venice Simplon Orient Express fleet, the British Pullman takes guests on enchanting Newmarket Holidays day excursions to a variety of destinations.

Chatsworth House

Guests’ first view of Chatsworth House, fronted by the River Derwent and surrounded by gardens, is a breathtaking event. The original home at Chatsworth was the work of Sir William Cavendish, built in the 16th century. No trace of this original building remains, but the house now standing features many of the original Elizabethan features, and the estate’s hunting tower on the hill behind the house has stood since the 1580s. Stroll through the dazzling gardens and experience the dazzling collection of priceless treasures.

Historic York

The best preserved medieval city in the UK, York remains rich in romantic ambience and entertaining activities. Exploring the city on foot immerses guests in the city’s exquisite architecture and quaintly cobbled streets, as they tour the museums, historic buildings, restaurants and shops. This Newmarket Holidays escorted tour includes a trip to York Minster, Northern Europe’s largest Gothic cathedral.

Glorious Goodwood

Travel to Goodwood, home of the annual Glorious Goodwood meeting, aboard the luxurious British Pullman. See the race’s top runners from the racecourse’s Gordon Enclosure, where outstanding views and supervised baby and toddler daycare allow guests to relax and enjoy the excitement. The Gordon Enclosure provides easy access to betting facilities, bars and other essentials, from snacks to fine dining, on race day.

Mouth Watering Meals

When travelling on the British Pullman, guests can enjoy meals freshly prepared by the train’s executive chef. Enjoy a Bellini with brunch, as you choose from fresh bakery items, fresh fruit and perhaps eggs and smoked salmon. Lunches and dinners feature five courses of seasonal dishes. Enjoy a glass of champagne before dinner, and  fine wine included with this tour.

Choosing a Holiday

Experience the Titanic and Belfast with Newmarket Holidays

A four-day holiday to one of Europe’s most exciting destinations takes travellers to the Antrim coast and city of Belfast in Northern Ireland. Experience Belfast’s new Titanic Belfast Experience, which commemorates the city’s fascinating industrial history, as well as the ill-fated Titanic ocean liner. This Newmarket Holidays getaway  begins with a flight to Belfast, after which guests settle in to their hotels and have time to explore the city.

A Guided Tour of Belfast

With the help of a knowledgeable guide, discover Belfast’s iconic sites, such as the Belfast City Hall, still in operation since its opening day in 1906. Inside the City Hall grounds, visit the Titanic Memorial Gardens.

The Titanic Experience

The highlight of this holiday is a tour through Belfast’s new Titanic Experience, built on the very site where the Titanic was built over 100 years ago. A stroll through nine galleries and multiple dimensions of the exhibition culminates in rides, special effects and full-scale reconstructions of the story of the Titanic. Interactive features bring the tale home in an insightful manner. Guests get up close and personal with the ill-fated ship on the Shipyard Ride, travel to the ocean’s depths and learn the true legend of the Titanic in the city where it all began.

The Nine Glens of Antrim

This optional excursion on Day Three of the tour takes guests to the scenic Antrim Coast, home to the Giant’s Causeway and the legendary Nine Glens. Home of myth and magic, the nine Glens of Antrim each have evocative names and are said to weave their own magic spells. These secret places of lush green fill the senses with the sounds of water first softly churning, then falling in gripping torrents, delighting the senses. The Giant’s Causeway, featuring polygonal columns of layered basalt, is the result of lava welling up through fissures in the ground, forming a “lava plateau” over 60 million years ago. In a land steeped in myth and legend, tourists find evidence of the giant Finn McCool in the Giant’s Boot, the Giant’s Granny and the Wishing Chair.

Dramatic Scenery on a Wonderful Holiday

This short holiday is filled with stunning sights and historical drama, as well as myth and legend. Trust Newmarket Holidays to provide excellent value in all of its holidays and its Customer Service Team to provide brilliant service in booking each trip.
