We have been delighted at the response to the brand new shop in Folkestone. We have had many loyal customers come in and tell us how happy they are to see us on the high street, as well as meeting so many new customers who have taken interest and booked up our trips.
Being on the high street is a brand new venture for Crosskeys Travel, as some of you know we were based in Caesars Way in Folkestone. This site is still open but this is mainly used for the general running of the coaches as well as coach hire. The shop is purely for our short breaks and excursions, as well as introducing our customers to all the new avenues we are exploring.
We have recently started working with Leger holidays and selling their fantastic luxury coach holidays. Leger pride themselves on providing their customers with the most unforgettable experiences all over the world and we are delighted to be able to offer these products to our customers. They really do have some fantastic prices available for trips all over the world. So if you fancy kicking back, letting someone else do the driving as well as taking in a part of the world you’ve never seen before then pop down to see us, grab a brochure or have a chat with us about what you’d like, I am sure we can find something to suit all your needs and wants for a fabulous Leger Holiday.

The Christmas Markets are a popular day trip every year. Crosskeys Coaches have been running these Christmas Markets Day Trips for many years and they continue to be a sell out!
This year we visit the Christmas Markets of Bruges, Lille and St Albans for the day. We also have a 3 night trip to the Valkenberg Christmas Market – unique in the fact that they are underground in an extensive network of caves!
Travel by coach to visit the Kentish villages where the Darling Buds of May was filmed and find out about the ghosts that make Pluckley the most haunted village in England.
Our coach tour at the end of May, will begin in the picturesque village of Little Chart, before travelling on to Pluckley. Here, we will walk around the village, lapping up the atmosphere and seeing familiar scenes from the TV series, first broadcast back in 1991. Pluckley is also renowned for being the most haunted village in England and our guide will have some spooky tales to share with us!
We had a very successful day last Saturday at the Excursions Exhibition held at Alexandra Palace. The exhibition was for group travel organisers and visitors and exhibitors came from far and wide. It was the first time we had exhibited at the show and the shows first time in the Great Hall.
With Christmas only 48 days away (yes really!), what better way to get into the Christmas spirit than to take a festive Christmas day trip!
Every year we run trips to visit some of Europe’s famous Christmas Markets which always prove to be sell out tours – and this year is no different. So get in quickly and take those last few seats that are currently available!
Visit London’s Camden Lock for the day and experience the atmosphere and history as you stroll through the mix of stalls and shops enjoying the wide variety of goods that are on offer.
The Camden Lock you see today was once a timber yard where timber was unloaded from large river barges onto smaller narrow boats that plied the inland canals of Britain. With the growth of more efficient forms of transport, the canals began to decline, and the site closed in 1971 signalling the end of an era.
However, Camden Lock was soon re-opened by Northside Developments in 1973, as the original arts and crafts market. The early development revolved around the old wooden sheds and cobbled yards. As the first Market in Camden, it immediately stood out from London’s other markets for its eclectic mix, and soon attracted the entrepreneurs and artists that first generated the Camden Town ‘buzz’.
