Since 1999, Brookland Travel have been specialising in unique itineraries with below average tour numbers for your maximum enjoyment. Escorted special interest tours and holidays for individuals and custom made Group travel (clubs/organisations and associations) are available from Brookland Travel - Established in 1999. Escorted garden tours, history tours and cultural breaks exploring our built and natural English heritage.
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.
