Coronavirus - Covid-19 Pandemic

Firstly and most importantly, we hope you are and your family are all safe and well and we wish you all the best over these difficult times.

In view of the well documented implications of the unprecedented worldwide Coronavirus pandemic, we want to reassure you that that the safety and well-being of all of our touring groups is very important to us and that we are closely monitoring advice from the Government, Foreign & Commonwealth Office and ABTA.

We have been dealing with the repatriation of clients stuck in Spain and are supporting our staff who are in self isolation.

Our office is now in full lockdown and we have very limited email access but those who are able to work are working around the clock to ensure that we can assist our customers with the most urgent needs and our goal is to ensure that anyone due to travel in the next seven days has been updated on their tour and given a list of options available to them, we will not however have the resources to enter into conversations over these options at this stage.

We will continue to contact tour organisers whose travel plans have been effected.

Best wishes at what is a difficult time for us all and thanks for your understanding,

The Burleigh Travel Team

Westcombe Park RFC Twickenham Training Day Experience

A once in a lifetime experience for one of our young rugby tourists!

Westcombe Park RFC Twickenham Training Day Experience

This September we were pleased to offer a once in a life time opportunity to one of our touring rugby teams to take one of their players and a family member to have a day that they would never forget. In a unique experience, they would join the privileged few who have graced the hallowed Twickenham turf and be coached by some of England Rugby's finest legends, whilst also enjoying the opportunity to explore behind the scenes at Twickenham Stadium, the home of English rugby.

The day started with a brilliant guided tour of the changing rooms in Twickenham. Here you were able to see where the players from current squad prepare before the game and where legends sat before them, players like Jonny Wilkinson, Martin Johnson and Austin Healey.

After the guided tour, the group lined up in the tunnel and ran out onto the hallowed turf and take part in singing the national anthem like the players have done for many years! The players then got to take part in a skill coaching session lead by rugby legend Lewis Moody. After the session, the fortunate participants took their opportunity to get photos and autographs with the rugby legends.

 Quote from Westcombe Park RFC 

"My son had a wonderful time at the Twickenham VIP experience! It was a very well thought out and organised day from the running out of the tunnel to singing the national anthem. But it was the time spent with the England Legends that was really amazing Not only did they get to train with them but they got tips and real insight as to what it would be like to be an England Rugby star and play for your Nation."
