Cultural Trips


At the Cultural Travel Company (CTC), we explore a range of fascinating subjects in the company of highly qualified experts – academics, writers, curators, broadcasters. Our trips focus on art, architecture, archaeology, history, music – or (as is often the case) a combination of these – in Europe and the UK.

We set up CTC to make exceptional art experiences and historical insights more widely affordable. We provide all the essentials: accommodation in sensible hotels, two group dinners (sometimes more), admission to sites and events, a first-rate speaker as well as a tour manager. Each carefully-paced itinerary has a mix of guided tours, lively lectures and free time. For greater flexibility, flights (or international trains) are not included – you make your own way to and from the destination.

CTC is a division of Martin Randall Travel, Britain’s largest and most innovative specialist in cultural travel. We rely on their tour planning excellence and have access to their unrivalled pool of speakers.

All our trips for 2018 are guaranteed to depart – we will not cancel a trip because of low booking numbers. Our maximum group size varies between 20 to 28 participants.
