• “I owe you a thank you note for persevering with this project and getting us to our current position where we have a fascinating tour which, I hope, could be repeated.

    All comments were positive.

    I greatly admired your delivery, admirably clear and audible.

    Thank you very much for a great morning.”

  • “Thank you again for the thoroughly enjoyable gallivant through the Peak District on Tuesday. I am still buzzing, and ready for the next gallop through the countryside.

    I will be sending our marketing chaps details of Brackenbury’s Britain. You should be so proud of what you do and what you offer people.

    With thanks (again.)”

  • “My colleagues, guests and I thoroughly enjoyed the walk as a means to get to know each other outside of the usual business networking forums.

    Your organisation, both in the preparation and on the day was absolutely excellent and we look forward to planning our next walk with you!

    Stephen BrittonPartner - Sills & Betteridge, March 2017
  • “Many thanks indeed for the day. You chose a lovely route and we’ll long remember the uplifting feeling as we emerged, late morning, into the field for our first view of a resplendent Chatsworth House in the distance. Thanks for organising everything so well and for getting it spot on at the Old Poets Corner where the fish and chips made for a superb post-walk meal. I’m pretty sure we’ll be using Brackenbury’s Britain again!”

  • “Richard, I wanted to acknowledge the very successful event you organised and led for us. Feedback from our clients has been excellent and the format really helped them network across the group too! I was surprised how popular the event was but you coped with double the expected numbers effortlessly.
    From a personal point of view I have hosted many events but I have rarely been able to relax and genuinely enjoy the company of my guests and maximise the opportunity of genuine conversation without worrying about everyone and everything. I look forward to working with Brackenbury’s Britain on our next client event.”

  • “Over the past two years we have used Brackenbury’s Britain to provide a dedicated service for senior delegates attending our International Executive Programmes.  The tours, which were tailor-made to fit our specific needs and our Chinese guests, were a hit with both the School and our delegates and Richard managed to make the 2015 tour very special for our visitors by lining up a guest of honour, something that we had neither asked for or ever imagined he could!   Richard worked very closely with us to ensure that our requests were met and, although there were a few changes on the way (from us), managed the whole process very thoroughly, smoothly and professionally.  We would have no doubt in using Brackenbury’s Britain in the future or recommending its services to others.   We experienced excellent tours and a great service!  Thank you.”

    Andrea O’MahonyExecutive Education Programmes Manager, Nottingham University Business School - September 2015
  • “Thanks for a really enjoyable day! Loved the route – a couple of uphill drags to get the blood pumping but not too strenuous; loved the commentary – Richard obviously knows the area very well telling us about the local history, architecture, archeology and identifying surrounding landscape and landmarks; loved the beautiful scenery and, of course, loved the tea shop at the start and finish of the walk and the pub with sunning views for a welcome drink en route. Who needs to go abroad when you can have a day like this on your doorstep!”

  • “The decision to use Brackenbury’s Britain for our office day out was an excellent one. Richard provided us with three possible routes to match the time available and the varying fitness levels of those attending. The choice of walking around the Chatsworth estate turned out very well with fabulous views and plenty of points of interest. Richard did a good job engaging with all of us and managing the pace. Weather was excellent. His choice of the Old Poets Corner in Ashover to finish the day was the icing on the cake, great food and drink. The team want to do it again – that says everything!”

  • “We hired Richard to help us with our hospitality and tourism activities when we hosted an annual, international conference in September. He was instrumental in making sure our delegates were well looked after by all the venues involved and he managed to secure excellent corporate rates. His knowledge of Nottingham and the surrounding area is impressive. Our guests were delighted with the activities he arranged which included historical tours and private dining at some exclusive venues in Nottingham. We would certainly enlist Richard again for his expertise, advice, professionalism and many connections within the leisure and tourism industry of Nottinghamshire.”

    Alan Boyden, Managing DirectorFreestyle Marketing Communications - September 2014
  • “I thoroughly enjoyed it – great walk with well planned stops for views and refreshments. Richard was enthusiastic and knowledgeable about the area and the history of the places on the route – all imparted in an easy going, friendly and informative way as we walked through the beautiful Derbyshire dales.”
