History & Heritage

If you’re a fan of history and heritage holidays, we have a wonderful collection of culture-packed breaks across Britain and Europe for you to enjoy.
 
Whether you want  to explore Great Britain’s fascinating history that goes back for centuries, or looking to visit Europe’s most renowned historical landmarks, we have something for you to enjoy! You can discover the stunning beauty that inspired British authors with one of our literary tours or experience the pomp and ceremony of the Edinburgh Military Tattoo. Or why not discover the Danube’s great cities or  take in some of the most picturesque scenery of Bavaria and the Tyrol.  
 
Whichever holiday you choose, you'll enjoy luxury coach travel, comfortable accommodation, delicious meals and, of course, the expertly guided excursions that Shearings are famous for.
