WELCOME | INDEX

Welcome to the Galloway Winter and Spring Collection

Firstly, we would like to say we hope you are well during what has been a challenging time for us all over the past year. Covid-19 has a6ected almost every aspect of day-to-day life, but we’re on the road to recovery and can now get back to doing some of the things we enjoy. We have an array of holidays in this programme, from the firm favourites such as Thursford, Turkey & Tinsel breaks and our Annual Reunion to a selection of new breaks to the Cotswolds, Blists Hill, The Arosa Railway and Windsor. You can book with us knowing your money is financially protected by Bonded Coach Holidays along with the option to add insurance which includes Covid-19 protection for that extra peace of mind. There is no better time to relax and spend quality time with friends and family so why not get planning your next holiday. We can’t wait to see you onboard soon.

EUROPE 2022

oberammergau Passion Play

The plague raged in many parts of Europe and did not spare Oberammergau. In 1633 the Oberammergau villagers promised to perform the su6ering, death and resurrection of Christ every tenth year, if no one else died of the plague. The villagers were answered by God and therefore in 1634 the first Passion Play took place. The promise has been kept to this day. In 2022, postponed from 2020, the 42nd Passion Play will take place in Oberammergau. This is a once in a lifetime, ‘bucket list’ opportunity to see a cast of over 2,000 local people perform a play like no other over a five hour period.
