Tailor-made short breaks

Print Friendly

A revitalising short break is one of the most rewarding holiday experiences imaginable, providing a few days of escape from the routine.

Whether it is a visit to a favourite city or an opportunity to discover a new corner of Europe, a Kirker holiday could be the perfect tonic. Kirker Holidays offers expert advice to help create the perfect short break, tailor-made to your own personal requirements: a cultural visit to one of the classic European cities, a restorative rural retreat, or perhaps a special celebration. Our carefully selected hotels range from the finest 5* palaces to family-run boutique properties, always with a focus on attentive service and distinctive local character. We will also arrange travel by air (why not fly from your local airport?), Eurostar or rail and private transfers to and from your hotel, to create a completely hassle-free experience. Rest assured that Kirker clients are looked after with extra care at every stage, and our hotel partners will welcome you with open arms and the best room available.





Kirker’s team of experts has many years of experience and they each travel regularly to all of our destinations to inspect hotels, research new openings and discover new restaurants and museums which our clients may be interested in. Our brochures contain detailed descriptions and our own independent ratings of each hotel, whilst our website displays a selection of photographs. However, it is essential to speak to one of the expert human beings in our London office – 020 7593 2283 – to discuss your requirements in detail. Or why not make an appointment to come in and meet us face to face.





In all our top destinations we include complimentary museum passes, entrance tickets or even guided tours which help you make the most out of a short break. Our exclusive Kirker guide notes also offer tips on the best sights, restaurants and shops in each destination – personally selected by us and kept regularly updated by returning clients. The Kirker Concierge in our London office is available to help arrange excursions, book opera, concert or ballet tickets and to reserve a table for a delicious dinner. If you are travelling to celebrate a special occasion, why not book a table for a delicious dinner at one of our recommended restaurants?

We care passionately about every detail and are committed to making every trip a memorable holiday – not an endurance test. Call 020 7593 2283 to speak to a Kirker expert.
