England’s royal palaces – With 2018 being the year of Harry and Meghan’s wedding, are you wondering what it’s like to live as a royal? You can glimpse the pristine beauty and experience the proud history of England’s most famous family during this spectacular 3-night, Half Board experience, which includes guided tours of Hampton Court Palace and Windsor Castle. As well as visiting the palaces with other singles on your holiday, you’ll discover the gorgeous gardens, the famous maze, and the largest grapevine in the world.

What do people say about Solos holidays?
Our partner Solos provides single person holidays and always aims to ensure that their solo travellers are happy throughout their experience. Here’s what two genuine single travellers and one of their tour leaders had to say.
Male Solos traveller – “It’s been terrific. We’ve had excellent weather, which was a plus, and the people I travelled with have been marvellous. We’ve welded together exceptionally well and I don’t think I’ve had a dull moment. I’d recommend it to anybody. I’m delighted I’ve found Solos, and I’m going to put it down into my agenda to do one every year.”
Female Solos traveller – “I like to know that I’ve got the security of Solos behind me. You know you’ll be well looked-after. Any time I’ve rung Solos they’ve always been very helpful, very caring, and very reassuring. With a Solos holiday I would also guarantee that you’ll find professional and interesting people.
“The tour leaders are also very important. I once went on a Christmas break and because we had a local tour leader we experienced meeting local people, dancing with the police, and going to places we would never have known about otherwise.”
Yvonne Rowse, Solos tour leader – “Without doubt, my favourite trip was to Alaska a couple of years ago. The wildlife, mountains, and blue glacial ice were absolutely breath-taking – we saw moose, bears, whales and sea otters. It really is the Last Frontier. An added bonus was that, back in Anchorage. President Obama was in town! He’d come along to rename a mountain!
“Another favourite SOLOS trip I have done many times is Montecatini or the Treasures of Tuscany; you can never get too much of Florence! Then there is the scenery and wild flowers on walking tours in Croatia and Bavaria. I could go on because I have visited so many memorable places as a SOLOS tour leader!”
