Poet Laureate, John Betjeman, described Sidmouth as a town caught in timeless charm, after being captivated by its beautiful gardens, clean beaches and Regency history. This lovely seaside town is nestled beneath majestic red cliffs, a town like no other, located in East Devon and full of friendly faces and beautiful scenery. The dramatic cliffs, fresh sea air and the abundance of attractions makes it a wonderful place to recharge the batteries. New itinerary inclusion for 2023 Powderham Castle & 2024 is a visit to Forde Abbey House & Gardens.

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.
