Riviera Travel in partnership agreement with English Heritage

New partnership co-ordinated by Riviera Travel's Vicky Billing and English Heritage's Tom Gannagé-Stewart
Riviera Travel teamed up with English Heritage. The long-term partnership was 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 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 10m people each year.

English Heritage 1.2m members

Riviera Travel 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 week sees the charity’s 1.2m members enjoying exclusive events at the charity’s historic sites, from expert tours to behind-the-scenes visits, as well as a 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 fits the bill perfectly as we share the same values and customer connections.’

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.’
