Whatever the weather, warm friendship, fun, comfortable accommodation and good food are guaranteed! You’ll be blessed physically and spiritually on a Torch Holiday.

Fully inclusive

Don’t forget – our holidays are fully inclusive! That means inclusive of all meals, outings, entrance fees, theatre tickets and transport during the holiday.

Enjoying your Holiday - Mobility Grading

To help you to choose the right holiday and get the best experience of what we can offer you to fully participate in, we provide a simple mobility grading scheme for all our holidays. The grading is explained below at the end of the page, with grade 0 requiring low mobility up to grade 3 requiring high mobility.
