Day Trips for Book Clubs

Jane Austen's Bath novels, Persuasion and Northanger AbbeyWe also offer a range of day trips to UK cities. We can organise coach or minibus transport or, if you prefer, we can sort out the guides, entrance fees and provide information on how best to enjoy your day trip using your own transport. The WI, Townwomen's Guild, and a 60th birthday party celebration group have all used this service for a memorable day out.

Our specialist guides are experts on a number of authors including Shakespeare, Dickens, Chaucer, Keats, Marlowe, Orwell, P G Wodehouse, Virginia Woolf and Monica Ali to name but a few. The day trips featured below include coach or minibus transport so that there are no worries about parking and no-one has to refuse a celebratory glass of wine at the end of the day.

Please note that these are just examples. Your itinerary will be prepared to meet your group's exact requirements and will be priced according to numbers and inclusions. You can include as much, or as little, as you like.
