Coronavirus worldwide outbreak

06 December 2021

Providing no further outbreaks of Coronovirus, I will be offering tours to book from April 2022.

Current Government rules on coming to Britain.

the government announced that travellers heading to the UK will now have to take a Covid test before their departure in an effort to limit spread of the Omicron. From 04:00 GMT on Tuesday travellers aged 12 and over will be required to show proof of a negative PCR or lateral flow test taken no earlier than 48 hours before departure. Tuesday 30 November face coverings will be compulsory in shops and other settings such as banks, post offices and hairdressers, as well as on public transport unless individuals are exempt from doing so.

If you want to make a booking you must have a trip cancellation insurance policy OR fully accept that deposit and final payments already made are non-refundable. Your trip insurance should cover you if you request a change to your dates after confirmation (some airlines have already started cancelling or bumping to a different date after booking) or cancel due to any circumstances. When I start reserving rooms and booking taxis and luggage transfer for your tour I will have a contract with them to provide the service for you.

THERE ARE SOME SPECIAL CONSIDERATIONS YOU are responsble for your own health risks There is still a threat of cancellation because of the Coronavirus worldwide outbreak.

Remember better to be safe and NOT come until 2022. We are supporting the health of our suplliers and our customers by delaying opening bookings. We also want you to have a good experience free of worry, and where places are open to eat and drink. We have experienced LATE and CANCELLED trains, due to operating staff being laid off for being in contact with a person with coronavirus. This can mean a long wait and overcrowded trains that follow with no seat reservations - not something we think you'll want to start and finish your journey.


Hotels & Bed & Breakfasts have not yet fully opened for bookings (due to lack of staff and Kitchens and bars may not be open). Some Cafes and Pubs are opening with distancing restrictions and only with outside seating. Many insist on pre-booking for meals (to control numbers in a room). Restrictions may come into force at a moments notice if dictated by National or local Governments.

IMPORTANT: Many places are NOT taking one night stays now and the wearing of medical masks is compulsory (such as public places and transport).

ESSENTIAL: You should check the rules for returning to your own country from Britain (England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland).

Walk in the Steps of St Cuthbert from Durham to the Farne Islands and Lindisfarne

We are staying in Durham for three days. Your plans sound perfect for visiting Holy Island. I'm a Christian with a real interest in people like St Cuthbert, St Aidan and St Colomba and Jeff is very keen on boating and fishing. We'll see you in July.
