NOTE: Midnight Tourism is a ticketed game. Tickets are £8 from the Southbank Centre website.

The great thing about our holidays is that that you haven’t taken them yet. And this is why our holidays are better than anyone else’s.

Ours are the holidays of the turquoise swimming pool, the white beaches, the shady villas you see in the brochures. Our destinations are never ruined by mosquitos, nearby building sites, local diseases or military coups. On our holidays you will never – it is guaranteed – step on a portuguese man-o-war, have your wallet lifted, or catch an STD.  Your rental car will always start; your waiter will always be polite; you will never, never miss your connection.

Our holidays are truly your very own personal Dream Holidays, because our holidays always, always, remain potential. Come fly with us and play potential holiday games, from musical sun-loungers to imaginary postcards.
