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

An action packed 3 night tour to Gloucester


Senior Rugby Tour to Gloucester: Ollerton RFC

Ollerton RFC

Ollerton rugby club travelled with 40 tourists for a 3 night tour to Gloucester from there club near Mansfield. They were based near the heart of the city, giving them easy access to Gloucester's various bars, clubs and the newly developed Quays. 

The team met at their club house at just after 10am and were picked up by their coach. They arrived into Gloucester on Friday afternoon and, after checking into their hotel, had the opportunity to walk into the centre of the city to sample to various bars and clubs Gloucester has on offer!

The following day the team were off to their tour fixture against Minchinhmapton RFC. After an entertaining encounter the final score was 44-44! Ollerton couldn't praise Minchinhampton enough for their fantastic hosting and, as you can see from the photo below, Ollerton really embraced the tour spirit!

Sunday morning the team awoke with sore heads, but a free day to explore Gloucester. The newly developed Gloucester Quays has a range of bars and restaurants, as well as some fantastic shops. Check out Gloucester brewery, or travel to the nearby Cheltenham Spa.

Monday was the last day of their tour, and the team made their way home after breakfast. We were delighted to hear they'd had such a fantastic time away and we look forward to their next tour with us to Antwerp.
