Upcoming Events

Join us for one of our Matthews Travel Tuesdays
Our Travel Tuesday meetings are a fantastic and informal way for people to find out a little more about some amazing holiday destinations from an elite travel expert. Our meetings will be held on the last Tuesday of every month* and will be held at the rather fabulous Duke of Wellington pub, close to our East Horsley offices. Each month we will invite a specialist from one of our most favourite Tour Operators to speak about a specific destination. Our chosen speakers will give a short presentation to the group, followed by a question and answer session, allowing guests to really quiz the expert on the things they want to know! We have been allocated a dedicated quiet area for our meetings and the pub have kindly offered to provide tea and coffee to everyone attending.
Places are on a first come, first served basis and we will be taking bookings for all our meetings straight away. Please get in touch with us to book your place – and feel free to book a space for your friends and family too – we will welcome you all! Take a look at our calendar below for a detailed list of events available. All our meetings will start at 10.30am. To book your space, please either email us at info@matthewstravel.co.uk or call us on 01483 284991.

All three ships have expansive teak decks, swimming pools, informal dining, a convivial Tropical Bar and a comfortable piano bar.

We excel in capturing what makes these far-flung countries such a fulfilling travel experience. We pride ourselves on being specialists who delve deep into the real country – traditions, local people and history. From charming character hilltop boutique hotels to remote jungle lodges. Activities a-plenty, including trekking, white-water rafting and horse-riding. Active family holidays and honeymoons. I look forward to giving a talk on the delights of Central America at the Matthews Travel coffee morning.
