Cultural Breaks is an ABTA bonded Tour Operator offering tailormade escorted holidays and short breaks in the UK and overseas. Our holidays are mainly associated with the arts and culture including visits to London’s West End as well as city and provincial theatres throughout the UK. Experience drama, comedy, opera, musicals, festivals, concerts, ballet and annual trips to Glyndebourne and the Gilbert and Sullivan Festival, tours of art galleries, stately homes and gardens. The Christmas and New Year breaks which include a full programme of entertainment are particularly popular with our members, who return each year to meet old friends and make new ones.

During 2018, our members have enjoyed ‘Rigoletto’ at the Royal Opera House, Cirque de Soleil ‘Ovo’ at the Royal Albert Hall, ‘42nd Street’ at the Theatre Royal Drury Lane, ‘The Sleeping Beauty’ ballet at Wales Millennium Centre, Easter in Torquay focussing on Agatha Christie, Shakespeare’s Birthday Parade and Celebrations in Stratford-Upon-Avon, Scottish Railway Journeys including the Jacobite steam train, Inverness to Kyle of Lochalsh and the Strathspey Steam Railway, ‘Swing That Music’ festival of big band, swing and jazz, the Cotswolds with tours of TV locations and stately homes, the Aldeburgh Music Festival and the Lord Mayor's Show.

Our holidays are enjoyed by all ages and are especially popular with the more senior market who appreciate the security of being escorted by our experienced tour managers, who are with them from the initial meeting point throughout the entire trip. They are always around to help with any problems as well as to ensure a perfect break. Our holidays are luxurious and almost everything detailed in the brochure is included, from our door-to-door pick up service, daily excursions even travel insurance. All meals included throughout, plus wine with dinner. Even gratuities are included, which means our members need take very little pocket money.




Many of our members are single people therefore hotel rates have been specially negotiated to ensure no single supplement is charged. All rooms are based on a double bedded room for sole occupancy.



Start your holiday off in style with our door to door car service. Our cars will collect you from home and chauffeur you to the holiday meeting point.



We provide our members with ABTASure's Premium Travel Insurance, which  is the preferred Insurance provider by ABTA and is included on all Cultural Breaks Holidays

Complimentary transport applies to members living within a 60 mile radius of Central London postcode EC4M 8AD. If you live beyond this distance you will not be charged for the first 60 miles.
