Day Trips Department

Welcome to the Day Trips department where we aim to show you the best our nation has to offer in a day excursion.  From North Yorkshire to the South coast, we have plenty of ideas to suit all different groups.  Our entertainment lunches have proved immensely popular and the programme of events is ever expanding. We have travelled extensively up and down the country sourcing delicious lunch stops, quaint tea rooms and expert guides to ensure a Greatdays day trip is truly memorable.

Our Manchester Sightseeing product is designed to promote the city that we call home to individuals staying in the centre, we offer a range of sightseeing tours and ‘things to do’ within Manchester as well as day trips from Manchester by train.

Mark Bentley-Fisher, Manager

I manage the Day Trips team, looking after all day trip requests.

About Mark

Favourite holiday: A short stay at a luxury desert hideaway in Borrego Springs, California. I had a private cabana with pool, looking out over nothing but desert – and it was HOT!

Favourite Greatdays tour: I would love to cruise down the coast of Norway with the Hurtigruten cruise – the scenery looks fabulous

Hobbies and hidden talents: Enjoy meeting people, eating drinking, and walking in the beautiful Peak District. Oh, and I can rustle up a mean Shepherd’s Pie or Chilli Con Carne (unless all my dinner guests are just being polite…)

Fun fact: I enjoy reading bus & train timetables

Louise Annesley, Day Trips and Tour Support Co-ordinator

My role is quite varied. I book attractions & coach hire for UK/Ireland tours and day trips; I host entertainment lunches; and I do meet & greets in Manchester.

About Louise

Favourite holiday: Japan 2018, I joined together with a group of other solo travellers to see as much of mainland Japan as physically possible in two weeks in Cherry Blossom season. Absolutely stunning!

Favourite Greatdays tour: My favourite Day Trip would have to be Lord Dudley’s Legacy – I just think it sounds really interesting and different!

Hobbies and hidden talents: Planning my own trips and seeing friends and family as much as possible. My hidden talent is that I’m very good at remembering dates for birthdays and anniversaries!

Fun fact: I used to work backstage on the Jeremy Kyle show…
