Your cultural fix

Cathy's verdict:

Solo culture vultures will love this new travel brand, designed to make cultural travel more affordable. Expert speakers accompany the short breaks, many with low single supplements, including a choice of art, architecture, archaeology, history and music, all combining group activities and free time.

Recommended tour operator: The Cultural Travel Company

The Cultural Travel Company says

We offer affordable group travel experiences throughout Europe and the UK, exploring cultural highlights themed around art, architecture, archaeology, history and music.

  • expert guides
  • low single supplement
  • popular with singles

Each trip is accompanied by an expert speaker and has an engaging itinerary combining sightseeing, lively talks, some group dinners and free time for you to explore at leisure.

Accommodation is in three-star and four-star hotels with breakfast included and group sizes are between 20 and 30 (with all departures guaranteed this coming season).

We offer a range of short breaks and longer trips. They always attract a high proportion of solo travellers – we do have to pass on hotel supplements for single room occupancy but, on some departures, we have negotiated particularly low supplements.

Our four-night Italian Lakes trip is centred around the magnificent palaces and villas asurrounding Lake Como and Lake Maggiore – we’ll be exploring the gardens in particular, a jaw-dropping mix of Mediterranean plants surrounded by snow-capped mountains and glittering lakes. The single supplement is £125.

Art in Andalucia delves in to the Islamic and Christian heritage of Malaga, Granada, Cordoba and Seville – from medieval mosques to Picasso’s unique art. The single supplement is £105.

Closer to home, our Historic Houses of the South West visits nine diverse but equally impressive properties such as Montacute House, Sherborne Castle (formerly the home of Sir Walter Raleigh), Stourhead and Lacock Abbey.

On all our trips, we include all local travel in a comfortable coach, admission fees, expert talks and a trip assistant who is there to smooth the way throughout. Travel to and from the start and end points is not included.
