We're still collecting donations

On the 19th June 2020 we'd raised £3,160 with 24 supporters in 28 days. But as every pound matters, we're continuing to collect donations from supporters.

 New stretch target

- create new systems for booking/streamlining

- ensure the continued running of the business

- create a better service for our customers from booking stage to end of tour.

What we do

Since our origins in 2008 our philosophy has not changed – our mission has always been putting our customer first. Our whole aim is to create the perfect inbound travel experience for our guests. 

We provide bespoke tours & holiday services into Northern England to create memorable journeys for our guests. 

Today, Northern Secrets Ltd remains independently owned by Alex who, alongside a small dedicated team, passionately continues to ensure guests experience a fantastic time in our regions...

The Covid-19 message

We hope that all our friends, colleagues and clients past and present are staying safe and healthy following the rapid global developments with the coronavirus (COVID-19) situation.

In the last weeks our small team have worked tirelessly in assisting our booked guests to make new arrangements and ensure safe rescheduling travel plans for the future.

The vast majority of our guests have shown both understanding and compassion as we have worked with you through extremely challenging and worrying times for everyone. COVID-19 will affect tourism not only in 2020 but moving forward. The new normal is coming and we are hoping to be at the forefront of this change and be able to work towards this change today. We can, however, only do this with your help...

Check out our rewards for some of the donations you, our backers, are able to give...

At Northern Secrets, the safety & health of our guests are of paramount importance to us. It is our duty to be pro-active in any new health & safety protocols and these will be implemented for us & our suppliers to ensure all guests experience the very best we have to offer in a safe and healthy way.

Our aim is to bring many more thousands of visitors into our beautiful region, provide employment and prosperity for our region and we can only do this with your help. Support us to come out of thing stronger - together!

Stay safe,

Alex Jacobs
