Mike Critchley, of Maritime Heritage Tours, is planning a Day Trip to Belfast to visit HMS CAROLINE on 19th April. Contact him on: firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone - 07977 534949 with any queries.
The World War One cruiser HMS CAROLINE is well worth a visit after her £11 million plus refit. The visit is planned for 19th April, flying out from Southampton. The programme will be something like this:... 0815 meet at Southampton Airport; 1015 arrive Belfast City Airport; 5 minutes by taxi to HMS CAROLINE; 1200 walk to TITANIC EXPERIENCE (3 minute walk); 1500 Black cab tour of the fascinating "Peace Line" in Belfast (highly recommended); 1700 return to airport by taxi; 1930 Back in Southampton in time for a late tea.
We have not included any cateriing on this day tour, but there will be ample opportunity for you to grab something appropriate during the day. The cost will be about £185 per head, depending on how soon you book. Unlike hotels we are unable to purchase flight tickets on a sale or return basis, so we must pay upfront. If you would like to join the Southampton group please contact Mike Critchley as above for details of bank transfer payment. Book early enough and you may even get a reduction!
If Southampton isn't your local airport you will find flights to Belfast City Airport from your local regional airport (East Midlands, Cardiff, Edinburgh, etc. - mostly by FLYBE) to arrive by about 1015 and you will be welcome to join us at the airport or we can meet you and whisk you to the ship shortly after your aircraft arrives. You can of course come on the overnight ferry from Liverpool and meet us at HMS CAROLINE.
The price will of course be a lot less if you book your own travel arrangements….Just let us know your proposed plans and we can quote you. If you are interested in staying overnight - to include a coastal tour to the Bushmills Whisky distillery and Giants Causeway next day - this can be arranged if requested. There is a Premier Inn alongside the Titanic Experience but for some reason they don’t accept group bookings! We already have clients booked for this "extra".
We look forward to hearing from you if the above sounds an interesting Spring day out for you.
