A Royal Way To See The World

A Royal Way To See The World

17 April 2019

Meghan Markle could give birth any day now and what excitement this brings! We love being patriotic and celebrating the new life that is due to arrive early this spring. The Royal Baby is due to arrive in April or early May, which means they are likely to share a birthday with one of their Royal relatives.

Bookies have their money on April 21, Easter Sunday, as their favourite due date, when do you think the Royal Baby will arrive?

After s/he comes the royal couple The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, will be looking for a well-deserved break.

You'd be forgiven for thinking the Royal family spend their holidays lounging on a glamorous yacht or jet-setting off to a private tropical island for total privacy, but they are actually a lot more down-to-earth with their holiday choices, often opting for staycations or heading to European hotspots such as Spain or Greece.

The Royal Family first became interested in Balmoral in 1847 when Queen Victoria and Prince Albert visited Ardverikie on the edge of Loch Laggan which is in the west Highlands of Scotland. 

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have a holiday home in Norfolk, Anmer Hall, where they have been known to head to during the summer for a break.

Fancy holidaying in the style of a Royal?

 Easter Sunday is the favourite due date, so we are offering you £21pp off the following Royal Themed Coach Holidays until the day after the birth.

Balmoral castle, the Scottish holiday retreat for most of the royalsm sits within the Cairngorm National Park. On our Great Rail Journeys (coach holiday) we take you to the National Park's most popular attraction, the funicular railway that will whisk you to the edge of the Cairngorm plateau (altitude 1085m) in just eight minutes.

The Isle of Wight has had many associations with British Royalty over the centuries and our coach tour takes time to explore some of the more fascinating examples.

We visit the Victorian magnificence of Osborne House in the 200th anniversary year of Queen Victoria’s birth, and Whippingham Church as well as Carisbrooke Castle, famous as the jail of Charles I.

As an added bonus, we’ve also included a superb trip by sea and rail to the Royal Naval Historic Dockyard in Portsmouth, to discover the world famous Mary Rose, Henry VIII’s warship.

Amid the far reaching horizons and wide open skies of East Anglia, lie some of England’s best kept secrets. Beloved of Royalty and the aristocracy for generations, for good reason, here you will find a slightly quieter pace of life and a wonderful diversity of interesting places to visit and things to do.

We travel through the Norfolk countryside to visit Sandringham House and Gardens – the beautiful country home of Her Majesty the Queen. Explore the fine 19th century Mansion House - packed with priceless antiques and gifts from around the world - together with the formal gardens, station museum and 300 acre country park.
