Randolph Caldecott Societies' Brittany Tour,
Autumn 2004

At 30 March 2004, we greatly regret that this Tour has had to be CANCELLED as not enough people signed up to it to make its price viable.

For the 21st Anniversary of the Randolph Caldecott Societies (UK and USA), we had planned a joint Tour of the places in Brittany (Bretagne), France, which Randolph visited to illustrate his book "Breton Folk".

Helping Breton beauties (from Preface to Breton Folk)The Tour would have started from England, and travel by coach to Brittany.  The coach was to collect us from (and return us to) Crewe, Reading or Portsmouth.  (Members of the Tour arriving by air should aim to arrive at London Heathrow, from where it is easy to get to Reading.)  We were to stay in 2 different places, travelling by coach (not by horse & trap as Randolph would have done!) each day to see many of the places which Randolph saw and illustrated.

2 nights at Hotel l'Abbaye (formerly an Abbey), Plancoet, near St. Malo;
5 nights at Hotel Mercure, Quimper.

Duration:  9 days (including overnight on boat each way).

Returning from Labour, by Randolph Caldecott, Brittany, FrancePrice:  GB£ 599 (US$930), including:
