Summer Holidays in Torquay
Known as 'The English Rivera', Tourqay is a beautiful place to relax and unwind. Torquay's harbour plays host to lots of luxurious yachts, that are great to watch as you share a bottle of wine at sunset. Or better still, you can hire a boat for the day and take the whole group on a tour of the sights and sounds of this picturesque region. If you haven't got the sea legs for that, you can kick back and take it easy in one of Torquay's many seafood restaurants...and enjoy the catch of the day!

If you enjoy the great outdoors there's no better place to indulge your passion than in the Lake District. Set in the rolling green hills of the county of Cumbria, you'll have no end of fun trekking through the abundance of wild beauty this region has to offer. For the more adventurous among you, there are a wide range of wild activities to be tried such as rock climbing, abseiing, and kayaking. If you've got a mountain bike at home bring it along, as the Lake District is famous for some of the most stunning trails to be found in the north of England.
Summer Holidays in York
Although the Vikings are long gone now, York has still managed to retain a lot of its medieval splendour in the way of its little cobbled streets and grand Cathedral. Just walking around York will make you feel like you have stepped back in time. With the Jorvik - Viking Center this feeling becomes even more intense, with many artifacts on display and even some live re-enactments of great Viking battles. After all the excitement, why not take a stop at the world famous 'Betty's Tea rooms' where you can sample some of the best teas and cakes Yorkshire has to offer.
