    Armchair Travel 

    Armchair Travel is one of the most wonderful ways to look into our fantastic, vast world and learn as much as our hearts desire. We can travel to some of our favourite places without leaving home.  Through videos, pod casts, books and music and numerous other ways, we can go to places we have never seen, or only ever dreamed of. This way of travelling is a delightful pastime and is good for the imagination and soul. This form of travel at it’s best, makes us want to go and see for ourselves. After all we are curious individuals and have a thirst for knowledge!

    Enjoy sensory and magical experiences as we travel back in time or across the globe, take a trip down memory lane and many more exhilarating moments that will make you smile and fulfill your heart.

    Ready? Let’s explore the Golden Age of travel, the glorious 1950’s, when air travel was glamourous, airline seats were spacious with plenty of leg room, passengers dressed in their finest and felt like film stars and meals were served on best china and glassware. Come and join us on our flight as we relive those memories.

    Take a look at the fact sheet and compare the differences from that golden era of flying to present times.

    To prepare for our trip, please follow the steps for a relaxing journey. Step 1 – Pour yourself a cup of tea or your favourite tipple, Step 2- kick off your shoes, Step 3 – pull up a comfy chair, ready? let’s go!
