Woods 45 Year Open Day

On Saturday 14th  May, our award-winning, family-run coach operator and travel agent teamed up with travel partners for an open day in celebration of our 45th anniversary

After months of hard-work and organisation for the event, we were absolutely delighted to see over 400 past, present and potential customers attend for an opportunity to learn more about the history of the family-run business and its current wide range of trips and holidays, as well as enjoying the option to experience on of our luxury coaches first-hand with a shuttle service, by coach, running to and from Arundel town throughout the day.

Cricket Woods Travel 45 Year Event



The picturesque backdrop of Arundel Castle Cricket Ground made a wonderful setting for our Woods marquee, in which we showcased a range of photographs, articles and memorobilia going back to the business’ establishment in 1971. The marquee was also home to display boards containing details of selected coach holidays, day trips, cruises and other travel agency products – perfect in wetting the travel appetite of our visitors!
