HOW IT WORKS
Our philosophy is simple. The most important aspect of our tailor-made tours is you. Only you know what your ideal tour should involve and that is exactly what Northern Secrets is all about.
Talk to us and we'll listen.
The first thing we do is get to know you a little, from your tastes and preferences to your fellow group members travelling with you. We want to know as much relevant information about you and your group as possible. Who are you travelling with? Your friends, family, work colleagues or a special interest group? Are you celebrating something special during your trip? What are your particular interests? Shopping, sport, wildlife, walking?
This sets the scene to create that perfect trip just for you...
CURATING THE SPECTACULAR
Any special requests for you and your party during your tailor-made tours & travel experiences?
Luxury private Afternoon Tea in the grounds of one of the region's great castles? Exclusive champagne & strawberries on a stunning remote beach in Scotland? Expedition wildlife cruise to the Outer Hebrides? Personal tour of contemporary Alnwick Garden by the Duchess of Northumberland? Looking for your ancestral roots? Butler-service during your entire stay? Fancy yourself in some lobster fishing? We can arrange all that and so much more - just for you...
Want to take your time when visiting some of Britain’s best treasures? We can do that. Want to enjoy a private Northumberland pipes concert in the grand atmosphere of Bamburgh Castle? We can do that. Whatever comes to mind, we are sure we can make it happen for you.
Looking for something totally different? Let us know - we love being challenged. A tailor-made experience gives you the freedom to be involved as much or as little as you like during the planning process.
We then fit the pieces together and create that perfect vacation full of fond memories.
TECHNOLOGY DESIGNED FOR YOU
Once you know what it is you want we begin fitting you with your hand-crafted tour to your chosen region(s).
Using the latest technology, designed completely with you in mind, we create a visually beautiful itinerary for you to download & share.
Download our travel itinerary app and you have your itinerary with you at all times - all details of your tailor-made tours & arrangements included (plus personal concierge at the touch of a button, handy city guides, your travel vouchers & anything else you may think you don't need)! Nothing is set-in-stone until you are completely happy - and even then, whilst you travel, you can make alterations if you wish.
Your party is not able to meet face-to-face before your journey but you wish to include them in itinerary planning? No problem - we us Zoom for virtual meetings and can create a group meeting for all. Our dynamic itineraries are also fully shareable with every member of your party.
Not all doing the same during your trip? Our app & itinerary will guide each member on their own journey to Great Britain as if it were an itinerary just for them... Talk to us for more information - we're here to help.
After all, it is your tour and your choice...
PERSONAL TAILOR-MADE TOURS CONCIERGE
Trip planning takes time - your vacation is special and at Northern Secrets we are dedicated to listening to you and understanding personal tastes.

You have your own personal concierge who will be there for you whilst on your perfect journey - in your pocket!
