Northwest Group Travel Film Unveiled.


Attractions, Retail, Meal Stop and Hotel Combine Forces to Attract Groups.


A brand new movie produced by UK travel trade specialists Steve Reed Tourism [SRT] of Hampshire working with North Wales based Eastwood Media from Flintshire is now ready for coach and tour operators and GTOS around the country.


And it’s Northwest England that has been in sharp focus.


It’s one of eight short films shot at attractions and destinations around England and Wales over the last fourteen months.  Each with the idea of helping organisers to put their tours and excursions together. Each film produced by Steve Reed Tourism when completed is distributed to the many coach and tour operators and GTOS on the SRT tour planner databases.


Here’s the link to the finished film:


The sites involved in the Northwest film were Samlesbury Hall near Preston in Lancashire complete with well-known tour guide Simon Entwhistle; Ena Mill Retail – famous for its landmark chimney - in Atherton Greater Manchester; the Olympus Fish and Chip Restaurant in Bolton run by Bolton icon Dr Tasos Pattichis and the superb twin attractions of Macclesfield Silk Museum and stunning Paradise Mill in Cheshire.


Daish’s Hotel Blackpool [on the North Shore] was the hotel used for the film and demonstrated how well located it was to conduct such a new and interesting tour to the attractions in the film. It’s one of twelve hotels in ten UK destinations around the Country operated by Daish’s Holidays.


‘Each of the sites chosen for the film proved to be extremely complimentary to each other – offering a service or an experience different from the other venues and attractions,’ says Steve Reed.


‘They make for a real live tour too – providing a first class service to groups whether it’s shopping bargains; excellent and friendly accommodation; delicious fish and chips; a historic Tudor building and tour guide as well as a fascinating journey back to the days of silk production.      


Steve Reed Tourism has this year launched a number of short films to help increase awareness of destinations across the UK and these include areas such as Bridgend County and Porthcawl; Port Sunlight Village; Plymouth; Southern Wales and Hull. Other films are soon to be premiered and these include the English Riviera and Gilbert White’s House and Garden in Hampshire.   Many of the films including trailers and wraps are viewable on YouTube


The films are produced by Steve Reed Tourism Ltd working in conjunction with a variety of film makers such as Eastwood Media of North Wales, Jay Stone Videography of Devon and James Button of Cardiff.
