Games holidays and vacations; including bridge holidays and tours, short breaks and weekends for bridge payers in the UK, abroad and overseas in Europe, in the USA and Worldwide.

What to look for when choosing a bridge holiday – this section lists operators and hotels offering complete packages for bridge players that include accommodation and bridge sessions. Many of these will simply be offering friendly games and are suitable for all levels of player, but a few also include competitions and tournaments. An interesting variation on this is where visitors play with local clubs rather than as an isolated group.
   Some bridge holiday packages will also include bridge instruction for people who want to learn the game or improve on their existing skills. Often this is an opportunity to learn from recognised bridge experts so it pays to take note of who is teaching.
   An increasingly popular option are holidays that combine bridge with other activities, such as walking, skiing, cooking or, in one case, a dude ranch experience.
   Another popular combination is a bridge cruise where you can travel worldwide as well as indulge your passion for bridge and play in organised sessions arranged in dedicated card rooms onboard as you sail between destinations. Bridge is often only played while at sea so choose an itinerary with a lot of sea days to get the best bridge playing experience!
   Some of the places listed focus on breaks for bridge clubs rather than on holidays for individuals or couples – here they will provide a suitable space to play, but it will usually be up to the club to provide any instruction, organise competitions and provide the players!
