    We know that planning every detail of your holiday is half the fun. It’s why we launched our interactive Holiday Design Stores last year to help you create the perfect trip. Tomorrow we’re opening our biggest store yet in Gateshead’s Metrocentre. Here’s what to expect…

    Going on holiday isn’t as easy as picking a destination and jetting off. You’ll want to know all the details before you book – the hotel, excursions, attractions, food and much more. At our amazing Holiday Design Stores, you can get hands-on when it comes to discovering destinations and exploring hotels.


    There are interactive maps and tables to play around with, as well as dedicated search areas and inspirational videos. And if you’re still stuck, our travel advisors are there to help and guide you through the process.

    To celebrate the launch of our Holiday Design Store at Gatehead’s Metrocentre in true Thomson style, we’ve got a packed schedule of entertainment, treats and prizes to be won. Here’s what’s going on…

    Thursday 26th February – It’s launch day! Rugby players from the Newcastle Falcons will be cutting the ribbon at 11.30am and you’ll have the chance to win a family ticket to a match of your choice.

    Friday 27th February – Fancy some refreshments while you’re browsing? Thomson Airways crew will be serving afternoon tea from 12noon to 3pm.

    Saturday 28th February – Bringing the excitement of Las Vegas to Newcastle – showgirls will be in the store from 1pm to 3pm with details of an exclusive Las Vegas offer.

    Sunday 1st March – Something for the kids – Metrognomes will be making special guest appearances and entertaining throughout the day.
