India Holidays

India is one of the largest countries in the world with a plethora of incredible destinations, each with distinct characteristics and abundant holiday highlights. This fascinating country is blessed with all kinds of natural landscapes such as jungles, mountains, beaches and hill stations and the sightseeing opportunities here are out of this world, from iconic landmarks such as the Taj Mahal to centuries old forts, monumental gateways and sacred temples. We offer a great selection of India holidays from the UK which are available all year round.

India’s vibrant capital Delhi is a must visit travel hotspot and the perfect destination to start off your India voyage. The city beams modernity with its skyscrapers, art galleries, mega malls and hotels though there is still plenty of old-world charm to experience, particularly at the Old City. Mumbai is another major Indian city and the country’s entertainment capital, best known for its dynamic night scene, bustling markets and malls, colourful temples and important historic landmarks including the Gateway of India.

If you’re not a fan of the hustle and bustle and would prefer a relaxing beach getaway then consider Goa, a beautiful Indian state offering a much slower pace of life. Goa has a gorgeous stretch of coastline with beaches boasting golden sands, swaying palms and the glistening blue waters of the Arabian Sea, and the state is renowned for its yoga retreats, Ayurveda centres, hippy-style markets and colourful Portuguese style buildings.
