Great Britain

Our UK Short Breaks are typically four nights and take place over the summer months.  Our theme is Holy Islands and we invite you to join us in Northumbria or Scotland.

As we walk in the footsteps of the Northern Saints, our base is the university town of Durham and the highlight is a traditional pilgrim walk across the sands to the island of Lindisfarne.
