Kirker provide over 50s holidays for the discerning traveller

Since creating our first luxury short break in 1986, Kirker’s aim has been to provide discerning travellers with a carefully selected range of hotels combined with tailor-made travel arrangements and private transfers, well researched itineraries that enable you to make the most of your budget and the time you have available.

Kirker Holidays’ destinations range from the classic cultural centres and rural heartlands of Europe from Paris to St Petersburg and Venice to Istanbul to the dramatic landscapes of North Africa and the Middle East, India and Southern Africa. This makes Kirker the first choice for people booking Over 50s Holidays.

Our city breaks to numerous major cultural cities in Europe include a wide range of extras from museum passes to private walking tours with an English speaking guide and the Kirker Concierge is on hand to recommend restaurants and to book concert and opera tickets prior to your departure. Nothing is too much trouble!

Our team of Kirker destination experts will tailor-make over 50s holidays to meet your requirements, however you wish to travel, whether by air, car, private transfer or the comprehensive European rail network. We are especially fond of all types of luxury rail, including the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express, The Transcantabrico and La Robla railways in Northern Spain, the Palace on Wheels and the Maharaja’s Express in India and the Rovos Rail in Southern Africa.

Hand picked hotels from cosy 3* and 4*, to 5* deluxe hotels, as well as charming rural inns, grand old ‘palazzi’, beautiful riads and historical paradors and pousadas. We will advise you on which hotels offer best value for money, to suit your requirements and pocket. Should you have a particular hotel in mind, which we do not feature on our website, we are more than happy to obtain rates for you and tailor-make a quote including your travel arrangements.

Our Cultural Tours and Music Holidays offer you the opportunity to travel in small groups of like-minded people in the company of an expert tour leader or lecturer. Itineraries include Uzbekistan – The Land Beyond the River, The Villas and Gardens of Rome and of Tuscany and The Pilgrims Way from Burgos to Santiago de Compostela. We also organise exclusive Kirker music festivals in Venice and Ischia, as well as musical weekends in East Sussex, Bolton Abbey, Cornwall and Suffolk. We also feature a wide range of leading music and opera festivals in Europe, such as the Puccini Opera Festival, the Schubertiade and the Mahler Festival in Leipzig.
