Which type of holiday suits you?

Want to soak up the sun? Or immerse yourself in lesser-known cultures of the world?


Do you want to soak up the sun and spend lazy days doing nothing? Or perhaps immerse yourself in the little-known cultures of the world? Whichever type of holiday you prefer, we’ve got the perfect tour for you.

Whichever holiday you choose, you can rest assured that you’re booking with one of the UK’s leading independent tour operators and eight-time winner of the Best Escorted Holidays award at the British Travel Awards. 

Escorted tours

Our award-winning escorted tours are a great introduction to the world of stress-free travel. Everything is organised for you and every tour is expertly designed by people that know the destination. Always accompanied by an experienced tour manager, every Newmarket Holidays escorted tour features included flights, accommodation, some meals and expertly planned itineraries. Enjoy included excursions and guided visits to places of interest, and, on rest days, get advice on the best sights to explore under your own steam.

Small group tours

Immerse yourself in the culture and traditions of the most fascinating regions on earth, as you share your experiences with a smaller group of like-minded travellers. Group sizes on our small group tours are restricted to a maximum of 25 but are usually around 16–20 travellers, providing guests with a more intimate experience.

Travelling in smaller groups also allows you to visit places that are otherwise inaccessible, whilst staying in unique heritage hotels and homestays that often don’t have the facilities to accommodate larger groups. You’ll gain a unique insight into local culture, with a series of intimate experiences designed to lift the veil on some of the world’s most extraordinary people and places.

Solo tours

In addition to the opportunities for single travellers to join our existing tours, we’ve introduced a selected range of specially created solo holidays, which feature several additional benefits and special arrangements.

As well as all the usual comfort, quality and value of a Newmarket holiday, you can look forward to some extra touches that will help you feel right at home – things like a Welcome Drink get-together on your first evening and included dinners, giving you the chance to get to know your fellow solo travellers. 

Accommodation on our solo tours is typically in twin/double rooms for sole use, so at the end of each day’s tour, you can look forward to the chance to rest and relax in your own comfortable space, before joining fellow guests for drinks or dinner.

Resort-based tours

If you're looking for a holiday where the emphasis is on rest and relaxation, with just a little gentle exploration thrown in, our collection of resort-based tours could be just the thing.

Spend long sunny days ‘busy doing nothing’ and balmy evenings doing even less in some of Europe's most welcoming resorts, including Lake Garda, Sorrento and Kyrenia. Take the time to indulge your love of walking, golf, sailing or cycling, join one of our optional excursions to discover the history and culture beyond the resort and your hotel, or pick and choose as the mood takes you from day to day. The choice is yours but still comes with the reassuring knowledge that your holiday has been organised by one of the UK’s leading tour operators and that all your flights, transfers and hotel rooms are included in the price.

River cruises

There are few finer holidays than those spent lazily drifting through enticing scenery on board a comfortable river cruise vessel. Our river cruises give you opportunities to follow the courses of some of Europe’s greatest waterways, past breathtaking gorges and dramatic cliffs, stopping to explore fairy-tale towns and ancient cities, world-famous vineyards and flower-filled meadows.

Cruise along the spectacular Rhine, following its languid path from Switzerland, through France and Germany into the Netherlands, or perhaps discover central Europe’s sweeping Danube, which flows through regal Vienna and vibrant melting pot Budapest. Experience France’s most famed waterways: the Seine, which passes historic Rouen, and romantic Paris, and the Rhone and Saone, which flow past world-famous vineyards to the beguiling warmth of the Mediterranean Sea.

Concerts and events

Enjoy something a little more extraordinary on our special events and concerts holidays, from the excitement of the tennis at Wimbledon to the grandeur of the Waltz King André Rieu. These tours include tickets to the event, travel, transfers and accommodation (where applicable), together with some meals and excursions.

Sing and dance along to live music as André Rieu performs in some of Europe’s greatest cities. Race through the snowy wilderness aboard a traditional sleigh pulled by reindeer to the secret home of Santa Claus, or stay a little closer to home and enjoy strawberries and cream as you soak up the unique atmosphere of the Wimbledon tennis championships.
