Just as the coronavirus restrictions had started to ease slightly back in the autumn, we all had some semblance of hope for getaways this year.

But just a couple months later and we’re already back in a full nationwide lockdown like last spring, leaving us cancelling or postponing any spring holidays we had been thinking about.

However, hope is on the horizon with the vaccine rollout and the government hoping to be able to relax restrictions in just a few months.

So if you’re looking to take advantage of escaping lockdown in (fingers crossed) the spring, but don’t feel quite comfortable to jump on a plane yet, why not take advantage of what we have on our own little island?

Travel company Riviera Travel is giving us the opportunity to do just that with their newly-launched UK tours to some of the most beautiful areas in the country.

With loads of amazing tours to choose from coming in at pretty reasonable prices and cancellation protection in case of Covid-related issues, we can’t think of a reason to say no to this.

To request a brochure or more information on the trips please visit or call 01283 742348 and quote WAH

Riviera Travel new 2021 UK tours

All trips come with Covid Cancellation protection included as standard, the options to change your booking for free up to 45 days before travel (for new bookings only) and if you’re not happy by day two they’ll send you home with a full refund as part of their 'holiday happiness guarantee'.

What have you got to lose!

Aleesha is digital shopping writer at woman&home - so whether you're looking for beauty, fashion, health or home buys, she knows all the best places to splash your cash. She earned an MA in Magazine Journalism from City, University of London in 2017 after graduating from University of Leeds in 2014 with a BA in English and Spanish (which took her to Madrid for a fun Rioja and tapas-packed year). Aleesha has worked for woman&home since 2019, when she joined the team as their digital news writer. A year on the news team gained her quick and reactive writing skills and a love for breaking stories, invaluable insight into where to get the best lifestyle releases first, an AOP awards nomination and the nickname ‘crazy watch lady’ after she became so obsessed with the royals that she followed breaking news alerts on her Apple Watch.

Before joining the woman&home team, Aleesha wrote for their sister site GoodtoKnow, where she covered celebrity news, health advice and where to snap up the cheapest lifestyle buys. With a background in beauty, Aleesha has also written for Stylist and Women’s Health where she developed an understanding into what makes a stellar product and which brands are worth paying attention to. She never leaves the house without a slick of lip balm and a good slathering of SPF, cannot live without an eyelash curler by her side and is always on the hunt for new lipsticks to add to her ‘Lipstick of the Day’ Instagram story highlight (and color-coordinated collection).

But it’s not just beauty buys Aleesha can help you with. Social media savviness, strong PR relationships and a need to stay in the know mean she’s all about the latest fashions, clever gadgets and reliable lifestyle buys too. She loves indulging in an interior craze (with a bedroom drowned in prints, plants and pink), is a regular visitor to the Missoma and Edge of Ember 'New In' pages and can’t resist the allure of a kitchen gadget—just ask her three coffee machines.

When she’s not playing around with new products and testing anything she can get her hands on, Aleesha spends most of her time with her head in a current bestseller, catching up on the latest Netflix craze with her sister, trying out new recipes, drinking wine with her bestie and (in non-COVID times) has been known to be a bit of a jetsetter amongst her friendship group. Oh and she makes the most of her Disney+ subscription by watching the Marvel films on repeat (definitely not just for Chris Evans...).
