Heritage breaks are ‘cultural highlight’ of Just Go portfolio

Just Go Holidays has unveiled a range of new escorted heritage tours, created in association with the National Trust.

Parent company JG Travel Group is the only recognised travel partner of the National Trust, which offers Just Go Holidays’ customers access to historic houses and gardens, as well as areas of outstanding natural beauty, in England, Wales and Northern Ireland.

Customers do not need to be National Trust members to join the tours, but members do qualify for a discount on the cost of their trip.

Dino Toouli, head of trade sales at JG Travel Group, said: “These breaks are a real cultural highlight of the Just Go portfolio.

“There are various travel options available on many tours, offering ultimate flexibility – from joining fellow travellers on the coach at one of hundreds of convenient pick-up points up and down the country, to self-drive or even travel by air. And with a door-to-door pick-up service, it really couldn’t be easier.”

The new tours include Cotswolds Gardens & Villages, which visits the National Trust’s Hidcote and Snowshill Manor Garden; Historic Highlights of Kent for the Single Traveller, which visits National Trust properties Ightham Mote (pictured) and Winston Churchill’s home, Chartwell; and Romantic Landscapes & Dramatic Buildings of Yorkshire, which features the National Trust’s monastic ruins of Fountains Abbey and its Treasurer’s House in the city of York, as well as a trip to Castle Howard.

The trip to the Isle of Wight – Regal & Stately Treasures of the Isle of Wight – visits the National Trust’s Mottistone Gardens and Bembridge Windmill, as well as eight other venues, including Queen Victoria’s holiday retreat, Osborne House, and Appuldurcombe House.

Manors, Gardens & Standing Stones in the South West uncovers the history of the West Country and includes the National Trust’s Lacock Abbey and The Courts Garden, as well as a guided tour of Isambard Kingdom Brunel’s SS Great Britain.

Great Estates in the Heart of England Long Weekend visits the National Trust’s Shugborough Estate and Moseley Old Hall, alongside trips to Chatsworth House and Lichfield Cathedral.
