Riviera Travel has teamed up with English Heritage. The long-term partnership has been established to help mark the 40th anniversary of Riviera’s first escorted tour, which takes place in March next year.
English Heritage is a charity that cares for over 400 historic buildings, monuments and sites right across England – from prehistoric wonders such as Stonehenge to grand medieval castles like Dover Castle, from Roman forts on Hadrian’s Wall to a Cold War bunker outside York. Through these, the charity brings the story of England to life for over 10 million people each year.
Riviera will be the headline sponsor of English Heritage’s Members’ Week in April 2024, and support a number of other events across the year. The very popular English Heritage Members’ Week (6-14 April 2024) sees the charity’s 1.2m Members enjoying hundreds of exclusive events at the charity’s historic sites, from expert tours to behind-the-scenes visits, as well as a jam-packed virtual programme plus an array of special discounts and competitions.
Vicky Billing, Head of Partnerships at Riviera Travel, said: “With our 40th anniversary just around the corner, we were keen to partner with an organisation that can help highlight our progress across the past four decades, as well as our position today and in the future. English Heritage fit the bill perfectly as we share the same values and customer connections, and we’re looking forward to supporting their events and activities next year.”
Tom Gannagé-Stewart, Head of Corporate Partnerships at English Heritage, said: “We are delighted to announce our partnership with Riviera Travel and English Heritage is excited to be teaming up with a leading UK travel business, not least as it marks an important anniversary. We are especially pleased that Riviera is supporting our Members’ Week, which is an absolutely fantastic showcase of the very best of English Heritage. We look forward to a successful partnership with Riviera and thank them for their support of our work.”
