Among the greatest honours that Newmarket Holidays has had is its partnership with the Royal British Legion. The partnership resulted in a programme of commemorative escorted tours known as Remembrance Travel.

Newmarket Holidaysewmarket Holidays is part of the Newmarket Group and has been offering customers real value for their money for over thirty years.

The American West | Newmarket Holidays

The American West is, simply put, the stuff of legend. California’s cities, from lovely San Diego to the glitz of Los Angeles to gorgeous San Francisco, offer travellers a variety of pleasures, all with the Pacific as an unbeatable backdrop. Travelling inland and across the desert will lead travellers to the unique city of Las Vegas, with its glamorous atmosphere and themed casino hotels, many with remarkable architecture and spectacular attractions. Further on, travellers can witness what is truly one of the world’s most startlingly beautiful and stunning natural landmarks, the Grand Canyon. They can even take helicopter rides over the Grand Canyon.

The American West differs in character from the rest of the country. It is quite unlike the more historic areas in the Northeast and the Southern states. The West is a place to dream big and think big, but is also a beautifully rugged place where one can encounter the American dream brought to life in so many different ways. The Pacific is a constant backdrop for the West Coast, while the desert landscapes of Nevada and Arizona show the American character, both geographic and cultural, in a different light.

Newmarket HolidaysSan Francisco is a must for any traveller to the American West, with such well-known landmarks as Chinatown, Fisherman’s Wharf and even the infamous Alcatraz. San Francisco is a remarkably easy city to get around, with various public transit options including the famous cable cars that traverse the city’s hilly streets. A guided tour is a good way to see the best of San Francisco. Many guided tours will even give people the chance to enjoy being taken for a drive over the world-famous Golden Gate Bridge.

Journeying down the West Coast is incredibly rewarding to travellers as they will not only see the natural beauty of the coastline but also places like Carmel-by-the-Sea and Monterey County, the latter of which is of particular interests to fans of John Steinbeck. In Los Angeles, Hollywood remains a major draw for travellers and movie lovers. The West Coast offers many opportunities to see major attractions, but the desert of Nevada and Arizona remains magnetic and fascinating both to Americans and travellers from abroad. While different, it is no less enthralling than the West Coast.

Newmarket Holidays offers escorted holidays that cover many of the top destinations in the American West.

The Best Canada Has to Offer | Newmarket Holidays

By geographical size, Canada is the largest country in North America and the second largest in the world. Only Russia is larger than Canada. However, Canada is nowhere near as heavily populated as its neighbour to the south, the United States, which means that it is filled with pristine natural wonders. For those travellers more inclined to exploring culture, Canada is filled with cultural diversity, both with respect to its multicultural cities and towns and the unique cultures of the First Nations. The landscapes of Canada are truly vast. This makes for a travel experience that can take in both the bustle of Toronto, the most populated city in the country, as well as the peaceful majesty of the country’s natural wonders.

Many visits to Canada begin in Toronto. The city is situated on Lake Ontario and is truly cosmopolitan, renowned for shopping and with a skyline marked by the CN Tower, among the tallest structures in the world. Not too far away, the world-famous Niagara Falls beckon. The capital city of Canada is Ottawa, also in the province of Ontario. The city is easily explored en route to Montreal, the largest city in the Francophone province of Quebec. The beautiful city of Montreal offers a unique mixture of North American and European, with a markedly different feel to any other city on the continent. In Quebec City, the atmosphere is distinctly more French, and much of the history of the city has been preserved. That means that travellers can enjoy a taste of Europe in its ancient ramparts and cobbled streets.

Newmarket HolidaysMany travellers then choose to fly west to the Rocky Mountains. Banff is a popular base for exploring this region, offering many dining and shopping options. Canada’s Rocky Mountains are mostly in national parks, meaning that wildlife is well-preserved. Wildlife sightings may include bears, moose and elk. The remarkable glacial waters of Lake Louise draw travellers from far and wide. Further north Jasper National Park is a must-see for travellers to Canada, offering splendid natural beauty that is hard to find elsewhere in the world. Vancouver, on the West Coast, is a great way to end a trip to Canada, but one may choose to venture further to Vancouver Island and see its pretty city of Victoria, which is the provincial capital, where historical British influences are evident.

The escorted holidays offered by Newmarket Holidays can be a great way to explore the vast lands of Canada.

Visit Canada’s Maple Leaf Trail | Newmarket Holidays

The largest city in Canada is Toronto, on the vast Lake Ontario, but it is no less warm and welcoming for being such a large city. Toronto is filled with unique Canadian history while also being a thoroughly modern, cosmopolitan city. Its downtown area features such attractions as a massive labyrinth of shopping malls all connected to one another, as well as the well-known CN Tower, one of the world’s tallest buildings. Toronto is a great place for travellers to start a journey in Canada.

Newmarket HolidaysAside from the pleasures of the city itself, the world-famous natural wonders of the Niagara Falls are not too far away, just a short drive along Lake Ontario. There, travellers can begin on the famous and historic Maple Leaf Trail, going north to Ottawa before going east to Montreal. Ottawa is the capital city of Canada and offers visitors the chance to see important and historic Canadian buildings, and to enjoy the city itself –an increasingly vibrant community. From Ottawa, follow the trail to the gloriously beautiful and stylish city of Montreal, once home to the Olympics and truly one of the most vibrant cities in Canada. Montreal is renowned for combining a North American feel and attitude with European influences. It is a young, fascinating city with style and substance as well as a beautiful setting. Finally, travellers along the Maple Leaf Trail will reach Quebec City, one of the most historic cities in Canada and one which still proudly displays that history. Quebec City enthrals travellers with its cobblestone streets, ancient ramparts and a distinctly Old World French feel, all in the New World.

Canada is the second largest country in the world. Many travellers choose to see many sides of the country by attempting an east-to-west trip that covers both the historic east and the wild west. However, another way to approach such a large country is to try to experience one area of the country. Even following the Maple Leaf Trail however will cover drastically different and exciting places, from cosmopolitan, big-city Toronto to quaint, Old World Quebec City. This fact reflects Canada’s general cultural diversity, its massive geographical size and the remarkable history of the Maple Leaf Trail. An escorted holiday such as those offered by Newmarket Holidays is an excellent way to experience the vast and culturally fascinating country of Canada.

The Canadian Rockies and Cruising to Alaska | Newmarket Holidays

When comparing Canada’s sheer geographical size and the vast distances between its cities to its overall population, a picture emerges of a country that is largely unspoiled. Canada is also far from identical to the United States. The original influences in Eastern and Central Canada are originally French, while the original influences in Western Canada come from a variety of ethnic groups who worked to expand the country westward. However, although English and French heritage is common, Canada has been home to many diverse cultures for a long time, preferring the model of the cultural mosaic to the American ideal of the melting pot. What all this means is that Canada is a welcoming and friendly country with a diverse cultural mosaic open for exploration. Outside cities and towns, remarkably vast natural landscapes unfold, attracting travellers from all around the world.

Eastern and Central Canada are the more historical and highly populated areas of Canada. While both these provinces and the Maritime provinces have their own share of natural attractions, travellers often enjoy venturing to the West to see the stunning Rocky Mountains. A great base for an initial exploration of the Rockies is in Alberta at the popular mountain town of Banff, which has many shopping and dining options as well as unbeatable, unspoiled natural surroundings. From there, travellers usually visit the famous waters of Lake Louise before heading north to Jasper, a picturesque town in a national park by the same name. Still in the Rocky Mountains, but further north, Jasper offers travellers pleasures distinct from those of Banff and, with nearby glaciers, a hint of what lies further north.

Newmarket Holidays

A popular travel option after driving west through the Rocky Mountains to Vancouver is to set out on a remarkable cruise to Alaska, one of the United States but separated from the rest of its mainland territory by Canada’s vast landscapes. The cruise is its own reward, with astonishing sights such as Glacier Bay awaiting travellers. Juneau, Alaska is an example of the type of port of call travellers will encounter. Sightseeing tours or expeditions into Alaskan backcountry are popular activities for travellers. The Canadian North as well as Alaska are truly among the most sparsely populated regions anywhere on the planet and offer travellers the chance to truly connect with nature. The escorted holidays offered by Newmarket Holidays make for a great way to explore the Canadian Rockies and cruise to Alaska. 

Memorable Travels to Belgian Cities | Newmarket Holidays

Belgium is an extraordinarily urbanized country, with many urban centres. Belgium is also one of the most compelling countries in Europe, with a fascinating history, a great deal of well-preserved architecture and an important place on the continent. Belgium is surrounded by France, the Netherlands, Germany and Luxembourg; most capital cities of West European countries are within a mere 1,000 kilometres from Brussels, the charming and stylish capital of Belgium. Belgium is truly a top travel destination and sits at the crossroads of Europe.

Visiting Belgium during the summertime means that travellers get to see the country at its most beautiful and the cities at their most vibrant. Belgian cities such as Bruges and Ghent can be viewed in the best light possible. Belgium has many urban centres of interest to travellers, but four cities draw the most visitors each year. Those are Bruges, Antwerp, Brussels and Ghent, each with their own character and their own compelling history and sights.

Newmarket HolidaysBruges is famous across Europe and beyond for its unique character. Many travellers to Bruges have said that walking through the quaint cobbled streets of Bruges feels not unlike going back in time. The ‘Chocolate and Lace city’ of Bruges is also filled with picturesque canals and astonishing medieval architecture for travellers to explore. The city can be taken in by a canal cruise navigating its romantic maze of bridges and waterways. Antwerp is another enchanting Belgian city, one with many cobbled streets and much stunning architecture from various eras of history. Brussels is the capital city of Belgium and a guided walking tour is a great way to take it in, exploring the many fascinating sights in the stylish, elegant city. Before leaving Belgium, seeing Ghent is a must-do. Ghent is a well-kept secret in Europe – a medieval town that has preserved a great deal of its charm. Stunning architecture and picturesque canals are among the reasons to visit Ghent. Here also a canal cruise is popular among travellers.

Newmarket Holidays offers escorted holidays to Belgium, covering many of the attractions mentioned above. An escorted holiday is always a great way to see a country for the first time, or even on return visits, but what makes the deal even better is that these escorted holidays are offered at real value-for-money.

Paris, Reims and the Champagne Region | Newmarket Holidays

Around 45 million travellers come to revel in the wonders of France’s capital, Paris, every year. The city is perhaps the most admired and loved city in the world, famous not only for its iconic landmarks, but also for its beautiful architecture, its history and its bustling streets. Among the world’s most beautiful, romantic cities, Paris is also a consistently influential place for culture, fashion and the culinary arts. As a world centre for design, it is hardly surprising that Paris is excellent for shopping. Paris is also, of course, a top city for dining, as it features both excellent bistro food and top Michelin-starred restaurants.

Travellers to France should not stop at Paris alone, however. Not too far away, the magnificent, world-renowned Champagne region beckons travellers with its charm, elegance and, of course, its champagne. Reims is the central city of the Champagne region and several of the largest producers of champagne have offices in Reims. However, champagne is far from the only draw in Reims, which also has a great deal of compelling history. The famous cathedral is one of the most beautiful medieval structures in Europe and was the site of a thousand years of French coronations. While World War I destroyed many old houses in Reims, the city was rebuilt in a wonderful Art Deco style in the 1920s, making it extraordinarily beautiful in more than one way. Reims is an easy city to travel around, with much to see in addition to good shopping and, this being France, good dining.

Newmarket HolidaysEscorted holidays are among the best ways to see Paris and Reims. Guided walking tours and the services of tour managers will be useful when seeking to understand the astonishing amount of history on every other street in both Paris and Reims. Seeing the great sights of Paris is of course a must, but Paris also offers a great deal of charm and culture outside the Louvre and the Eiffel Tower. Travellers should see Montmartre, the world-famous artists’ quarter in Paris, for example, and a guided tour is one good way to encounter the area. In Reims, visiting a champagne house is a must and there, also, choosing an escorted holiday will pay off. Newmarket Holidays has a great deal of experience in taking travellers to France, having been arranging travel to Paris since 1983. This is but one of the reasons it is a good choice for an escorted holiday to France.

The Isle of Wight | Newmarket Holidays

The Isle of Wight, a mere six miles off the southern coast of England, is a genuinely stunning and wonderful holiday destination with the added benefit of being so close to home for people in the United Kingdom. Travellers can both enjoy the Isle of Wight’s different atmosphere and the chance to escape for a few days without venturing too far from home. The Isle of Wight has a lot to offer travellers, with its astonishing scenery along the coast, its bustling resorts and its quaint villages. Staying on a resort is  a pleasurable experience, but the Isle of Wight offers several sights to see, so taking excursions is recommended.

It is ideal to visit the Isle of Wight on an escorted holiday that ensures comfortable accommodation and transport as well as the services of a professional tour manager. The Isle of Wight can provide travellers with a lot to do and a lot to learn about life on the isle. Newmarket Holidays offers escorted holidays to the Isle of Wight that cover several of its top attractions and provide comfortable accommodation at good-quality hotels in resort towns on the isle. This is a great way to explore the Isle of Wight on a  UK getaway.

Newmarket HolidaysThe popularity of the Isle of Wight as a seaside resort goes back to Victorian times, when several of the isle’s towns and beaches were popular with Victorians for seaside holidays. The Isle of Wight has in more recent years become popular among a diverse crowd of English visitors looking for everything from traditional holidays to outdoor adventures. Only 15 miles from Southampton across the sea and 6 miles from Portsmouth, the Isle of Wight is nevertheless quite different from much of England. The Isle of Wight has its own unique scenery, way of life and culture that nevertheless is very much a part of the UK’s culture. The water quality on the isle is good and the beaches are famous for good reason.

Touring the island is a recommended activity for travellers, as the Isle of Wight offers much diversity in terms of landscapes and the overall feel of different areas. The coast road to Alum Bay is a must as it is particularly beautiful. Yarmouth is worth visiting as well, featuring a charming harbour, shopping and a castle. The unique Ventnor Botanical Gardens are also worth visiting.
