Autumn & Winter Holidays

So many wonderful experiences to choose from...

At Shearings, we pride ourselves on offering unforgettable holiday experiences all year round. So, we're delighted to bring you our latest collection of holidays departing in autumn and winter - the most beautiful seasons to explore the UK and Europe.

Explore some of the most beautiful Christmas Markets across Europe and the UK, or enjoy a Christmas themed week in the UK on a Turkey and Tinsel getaway. Get away from the British weather for some winter sun on the coast in Spain, Italy and Portugal. Or take a different direction and enjoy magical winter wonderlands in the Alps or Scandinavia.

You can even join us over the festive season; we have holidays which include Christmas Day and New Year’s Eve meals, with drink receptions and other inclusions on some breaks.

We've also been listening to what is important to you, our valued customers and are delighted to announce that we have recently launched FREE Wi-Fi on all Shearings branded coaches, have named over 90 of our coaches following an overwhelming response to our 'Name our Coaches' campaign and we're introducing a brand-new entertainment package very soon!
