David Peachey Profile


After leaving school with A Levels in Physical Education, Business Studies and Geography David combined his passion for sport and business at UWIC where he gained a Bsc Honours Degree in Sports Development. Joining the sports travel industry was a natural progression for David allowing him to maintain his keen interest in sport whilst transferring this in to a career in business. Having joined Burleigh Travel in 2006 David is a member of our Administration team where he enjoys piecing together the different aspects that go in to making a successful sports tour.  Working at Burleigh Travel has also allowed him to travel to several destinations giving him the opportunity to experience a variety of cultures despite his fear of flying.

Having started playing cricket at the age of eight David represented Gloucestershire at county level from U10s through to U16s which included an annual end of season tour. Although still a keen supporter of cricket, Davids main sporting interest now is golf which he plays on a regular basis including an annual golf tour with friends. He has also played tennis for many years for Redmarley Tennis Club who compete in the Gloucestershire Tennis League.

Away from sport, Davids main interests include stand up comedy, he is a massive fan of Rhod Gilbert, and music where his idol is Noel Gallagher.

Favourite Sports Tour Destination

“Dublin – nowhere comes close to the friendly and hospitable welcome of the Irish. Dublin is a fascinating City full of culture, great sporting tradition and a vibrant nightlife. No trip to Dublin is complete without a visit to Temple Bar to sample a true pint of Guinness!”

Being driven around the Nurburgring on a school tour to Germany.”
