About Us

At Specialist Leisure Group, we strive to consistently deliver safe, enjoyable and memorable leisure experiences of amazing value.

The group has a rich history, having been one of the leading coach holiday companies since the original brand, Happiways was founded in 1903.

Over 115 years, we have grown and innovated with the industry, taking the first ever coach party from the UK to Europe in 1938 and growing to control seven brands offering a variety of leisure breaks.
