Halsbury Travel Named the Country's Fastest-Growing Educational Tour Operator

We’re thrilled to report that Halsbury Travel has been ranked as the sixth fastest-growing tour operator in the UK, making us the fastest-growing educational tour operator in the country. The results of the recent industry review by Plimsoll reflect nearly 30 years’ of hard work and for that we would like to thank our fantastic team and, of course, our customers. 

Halsbury Travel was created by former French teacher Keith Sharkey back in 1986. As a teacher, he had led numerous educational trips abroad and saw first-hand the impact that such trips had on his students. He founded Halsbury Travel in order to provide more students with the opportunity to travel with their schools, by making the process of arranging school trips easier for teachers who share his passion for learning outside the classroom. 

As we fast approach our 30th anniversary (exciting plans for which will be announced soon!), we are proud to be a healthy, financially stable, growing company. We are also proud that, despite being a growing company, we continue to be a fiercely independent tour operator that puts our customers first. For us, personalised service is why we were created in the first place and will remain our promise to our customers.
