Find inspiration for days out and short breaks at
the new look Excursions™

Excursions™ has a bold new look for 2018 along with an enhanced visitor experience for tour operators and itinerary planners seeking fresh ideas for days out and short breaks in both the UK and mainland Europe. The premier one day group travel show is being held at Alexandra Palace in North London on Saturday, 27th January (10.30am-4pm).

The show's unique location based stand layout will be continued, with destinations, attractions, tour operators and accommodation providers from one area positioned close to each other, making it easy for visitors to plan their group itineraries.

Visitors to ExcursionsTM will be able to watch an exclusive preview of The Matinee Shows with live performances throughout the day. Created and produced by Groups Direct in association with James R Hearn, the shows include a welcome drink, three-course meal and a music legend tribute act such as Elton John, Freddie Mercury and Dolly Parton and Kenny Rogers.

Free transfer coaches
Excursions™ is once again running its programme of free coach transfers for visitors with 15 coaches covering over 70 pick-up points to the north, south, east and west of Alexandra Palace. This includes a return service from five central London main line railway stations. Although the coach travel is free, it is essential to pre-book a seat.

These popular coaches are organised in partnership with Confederation of Passenger Transport UK and members of the Coach Marque quality scheme. Although the coach travel is free, it is essential to pre-book a seat.

For visitors making their own way to Excursions™ by train, a complimentary shuttle service will run from Alexandra Palace main line and Wood Green underground stations to the exhibition venue courtesy of Ebdons Tours from 10am until 4pm; marshalls will be at the station from 9.45am until 12noon. The W3 bus also picks up from both stations and drops off at Alexandra Palace.
