2022 we are proposing a tour to Madeira. We would travel by coach to Gatwick Airport on the 20 March ,stay overnight at a Premier  Inn and then leave for the tour from 21-28 March.  We will be using Riveira Travel’s tour called Madeira the Pearl of the Atlantic  which can be found on their website.
