Cultural Breaks is an ABTA bonded Tour Operator offering escorted holidays and short breaks for lovers of travel, culture and the arts. All our holidays, whether in the UK or overseas, include a chauffeur driven car service between home and the meeting point and are fully escorted throughout by experienced tour managers. For overseas holidays, our chauffeurs will escort you, with your luggage to be greeted by your tour manager at the airport or cruise terminal check-in. This service is especially popular with our older members. Accommodation in 4-Star and 5-Star hotels is provided as standard, with no single supplements on double rooms for single occupancy, a real asset for our many single members. Everything detailed in our brochure is included in the price; door-to-door car service, coach travel, flights, accommodation, all meals throughout, wine with dinner, theatre tickets, guided tours, admission to properties, gratuities and even travel Insurance.

We visit London’s West End as well as city and provincial theatres throughout the UK. Experience drama, comedy, musicals, concerts, ballet and opera, annual trips to Glyndebourne and the Gilbert and the Sullivan Festival, tours of art galleries, stately homes and gardens.

During the first part of 2018, our members can enjoy ‘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 founded by Benjamin Britten and Matthew Bourne’s ‘Cinderella’ ballet.

Later in the year we have holidays in North Wales with gardens, stately homes and theatre, the RHS Flower Show Tatton Park and tours of Chester, The Gilbert and Sullivan Festival 25th Jubilee Buxton, ‘Magical Malta’ encompassing its history and culture, the popular and magnificent Lord Mayors Show, Stoke-on-Trent Potteries focussing on decorative and visual arts, the ever popular Glyndebourne Opera, this year featuring Giuseppe Verdi’s ‘La Traviata’ and Jules Massenet’s ‘Cendrillon’ and Durham City’s Traditional Christmas Festival with shopping and festive entertainment centred around the Cathedral and Castle. We end the year with our Christmas and New Year holidays, both include full programmes of entertainment, food and fun; a great time to meet old friends and make new ones. 




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
