Who are we?

Arena Travel

The Arena Travel proudly owns The River Cruise Line and Arena Rail Holidays – two leaders in their own field. We pride ourselves on offering quality holidays around the UK, Europe beyond. With years of experience under our belt, we know our holidays like the back of our hand, and we’re always happy to help.

Still proudly independently owned to this day, Arena Travel has developed its reputation for delivering quality special interest holidays over nearly four decades. Through the years the variety and number of tours on offer has grown, but the aim has always remained the same – to provide a truly personal service catering for both group and individual needs, leaving you free to enjoy your holiday to the full.

Arena can, in fact, lay claim to being something of a trailblazer in the travel sector and has been responsible for some impressive firsts: We were the first company to charter the supersonic passenger airliner Concorde, the first to organise day trips across the Channel to Calais back in the 1970s and the first to offer tours to modern China following the lifting of the Bamboo Curtain.

The River Cruise Line & Arena Rail Holidays

In March 2017, we became the proud owners of The River Cruise Line and Arena Rail Holidays. Our aim is to provide quality, affordable, and most importantly, enjoyable holidays. Our offices are based in Market Harborough, Leicestershire, home to friendly, knowledgeable holiday advisors who are always happy to help and answer any queries you may have. With years of travel experience under the belt of every employee, they are on hand to answer any questions you may have.

Art Pursuits Abroad

Art Pursuits Abroad Limited has been organising cultural holidays and art history courses since 2003. Our Study Tours combine the art of travelling with the pleasure of looking at and learning about art and history in beautiful places. Taken over by Arena Travel in 2018, we provide quality holidays that create unforgettable memories.
