About us


Yardarm Tours offers short, fun getaways for small groups. Our tours are designed around craft beer, wine or whisky. We visit lesser known destinations and quality producers which are difficult to visit independently.  We operate tours in the late autumn, winter and early spring seasons when it’s a quieter time to travel.

Jonathan Newsam has worked in the travel industry for over 15 years. He operates large group tours throughout Europe from April – October and spends the winter months researching beer, wine & whisky. Sometimes research is best done in warm, sunny locations, preferably with international cricket happening in the background.

Angela Newsam is a University Administrator and the logistics lady behind Yardarm Tours. She supports Jonathan in his research efforts to ensure that customers will enjoy their Yardarm tour.

We are members of the Association of Group Travel Organisers.
