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,

General Rugby Festival Information

Octoberfest is Burleigh Travel's newest and most exiting event in the under 16's calendar. The weekend is designed to allow sides who normally travel in April, but are unable to do so this year due to GCSE's the opportunity to carry on the touring tradition with a tour to remember with a break from the traditional holiday parks with arcades and limited outdoor facilities that you many have tried before. We are offering you a combination of exhilarating team building activities and an action packed day of rugby at your nearby host club.


You will be staying at Dearne Valley which is located in the beautiful rolling hills of South Yorkshire. This fantastic state of the art activity centre is spread over 50 acres of grass and woodland, with a range of challenging apparatus such as zip lines, climbing walls, high ropes and a leap of faith. The Kingswood centres won the award for the Best Residential Experience at the last School Travel Awards.

All of these activities take place in a safe and secure environment, and all of which are included in your tour package. The whole weekend is tailored to give your players a unique team building experience. You will never have experienced a sports tour quite like this!
