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 Tours to France

Take on the French teams and tackle their sport prowess.


School Rugby Tours to France

School rugby tours to France would allow your group to enjoy cities such as Lille in the north, or Biarritz in the South, experiencing activities like surfing by the long, golden beaches of the south coast.  Lille is a city capable of providing an eclectic mix of culture, history and modern living combined with the typical strong tradition for rugby.  Your accommodation will give easy access to the city centre, whilst the Belgian city of Brussels is only 70 miles away, where an alternative plethora of activities are available.  Biarritz is a delightful town in the vibrant Basque Country, a unique area either side of the South Westerly border France shares with Spain.  While staying in Biarritz a trip to the white water rafting rapids in the nearby Pyrenees Mountains is highly recommended for the more adventurous members of the group.

Create your France Tour Itinerary

The activities and excursions available in France are ideal for school rugby tours; white water rafting in the Pyrenees Mountains, visit Oceade Water Park; go karting; surfing on the coast or watch a professional rugby match. There should not be a minute of the day without something to do during any rugby tour!

Some of our staff have visited France both on sports tours and familiarisation visits, so are therefore well-equipped to draw on their first hand experience in order to answer any queries you may have regarding this destination. They will be more than happy to discuss the countries suitability as a school rugby tour destination in more detail with you.
