WELCOME TO BROOKLAND TRAVEL

 

Escorted garden tours, history tours, cultural breaks exploring our built and natural English heritage. Group travel and special interest hotel breaks for individuals are available from Brookland Travel - Established in 1999.

Our imaginative and carefully designed short breaks take place throughout the UK and in some European destinations. Discover glorious gardens, stately homes, stunning countryside, vibrant cities and towns that are abundant with fine architecture and culture, islands that are "off the beaten track" and castles where intriguing and exciting historical events have taken place.

Where possible we include private and lesser known properties that compliment the tour theme.  Travel with like-minded people and be accompanied by one of our specialist guides who will share their knowledge in subjects ranging from history, gardens, art, architecture and archaeology, to name just a few themes. We operate the majority of our tours with a smaller number of participants to ensure a more personal experience. Julian Humphrys. historian, author and guide escorts most of the historical Tours Through Time short breaks.

See the Tours Through Time page for the current programme.

Garden Tours

WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING...

"We had a glorious three day tour, everything ran like clockwork. Wendy was a lovely efficient guide, the hotel was perfect, the food delicious and the sun shone apart from Friday morning at The Garden House – didn’t spoil it of course!! I have had many comments on the success of the tour and this is down to you all at Brookland – thank you very much for all your organising and we will now have to work out where our next trip might take us! We will be in touch and thank you again. Kind regards Mary Spires June2016

Mary Spires , Winterslow Horticultural Society

"Glasgow and Ayrshire – September 2015 - Well, what a tour! It all went very well and many of our members have emailed me to say how much they enjoyed it. Thanks so much for putting this one together for me – and most importantly, I can’t praise Elisabeth Burns too highly. She has a remarkable recall of detail. I was at the front of the bus with her, as you would expect, and most of her information was delivered without script! Jim, the driver, a jolly dour Scot, was great fun and got us out of a few scrapes! Very best wishes
