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

School Rugby Tour to Edinburgh

The pupils and teachers of Birkdale Prep School embarked upon a rugby tour to Edinburgh for their 2004 rugby tour.

As a rugby tour destination, Edinburgh has a lot to offer for rugby groups of all ages, with the majestic Edinburgh Castle looking over a wide range of attractions, activities, bars and restaurants sure to cater for every rugby tour's tastes and preferences. The tourists from Birkdale thoroughly enjoyed their time in the Scottish Capital with visits to Murrayfield Stadium for a guided tour of the home of Scottish Rugby and also an enjoyable visit to the local Lazerquest for an action packed evening.

The group travelled with U10 & U11 squads and faced local opposition on two occasions allowing the rich tradition in English - Scottish rivalry to be revisited. The tourists were shown an outstanding welcome by both Linlithgow and Boroughmuir Rugby Clubs and described their rugby encounters as perfect in every way.
