Sorry! This trip has sold out.
The Vale of Evesham and its neighbouring area have been famous for fruit and vegetable growing since Medieval times and is known to have some of the most productive horticultural land in the country. For a few weeks every April and into early May, the roadsides around Evesham - along the 'Blossom Trail' - are ablaze with colour from the fruit tree spring blossoms. Based in Great Malvern, this lovely Springtime break includes a heritage train ride to Cheltenham.

Departure points to suit you...
Crusader Holidays uses an interchange system, taking place at either Beaconsfield Services (M40), South Mimms Services (M25/A1M) or Thurrock Services (M25).

Here you may have to change to your holiday coach and we are renowned for ensuring that this is smooth and efficient.

The holiday coaches typically depart from Beaconsfield Services at 11.15, Thurrock Services at around 09.30 and South Mimms Services at 10.30. Some customers find it more convenient to join direct at the interchange, please let is know when booking if this is the case.

*Due to increased operational costs, from Monday 16th October 2023 Dover, Folkestone, Canterbury & Ashford joining points will be subject to a £25.00 per person supplement on all 2024 UK Tours.

NOTE: Pick up points are a guide so please refer to your holiday confirmation for specific locations as details are subject to change.
