NEW FOR 2016! After a ten year absence from our programme we are going back to our roots in 2016 and offering a series of Religious Heritage Tours to special interest groups.
The foundations of what is now TML Travel Group where built from offering a series of religious heritage tours.
Following an approach earlier this year, we have decided to reintroduce them and the product structure for these is based around our Premier Class brand.
To date, we are able to offer three religious tour itineraries and dependent upon the georgraphical location of your group, these can be offered as a 5, 6 or 7 day package.
The itineraries available are as follows:
Iona Pilgrimage & Mull Experience
For the Gaels, Iona is I Chaluim Chille - the isle of Colm Cille, an Irish priest and prince who was to become revered as Saint Columba. A tiny island, of typically Hebridean beauty, it holds a unique place in the story of Scotland and kindles the imagination of thousands who journey there each year. Yet it is also where people have lived, worked and worshipped over many centuries. To and from its shores have come monks and pilgrims, clan chiefs and kings, artists and craftsmen, farmers and fishermen.
The Isle of Mull has become well known by all who view the BBC programmes Springwatch and Coast. It offers attractions for all the family, and offers a holiday where wildlife is around every corner, visitor attractions cater for all ages, and the whole family has a chance to live a lifestyle far removed from the hectic urban pressurised existence.
Lindisfarne Pilgrimage & Religious Heritage In The North East
The North East of England has a strong religious past, as can be seen in works such as the Lindisfarne Gospels and the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle. The work of the 7th-century Cuthbert (634–687 AD), Bede (673–735 AD) and Hilda of Whitby (614–680 AD) being hugely influential in the early church and are still venerated today. These saints are usually associated with the monasteries on the island of Lindisfarne, Wearmouth – Jarrow, and the Abbey at Whitby but they are also associated to many other religious sites in the region.
