Tangney Tours is with you every step of the way

We are a family business and have been organising pilgrimages to the Holy Shrines of Europe and around the world since 1974. This has given us the experience to develop and fine tune our services to cater for the special needs and expectations of our pilgrims. Tangney Tours is with you every step of the way.

We organise pilgrimages to destinations including Lourdes, Rome, Fatima, Częstochowa, Santiago de Compostela, Medjugorje, The Holy Land and many other places around the world including Asia, Australia and the Americas. We are appointed by the majority of the UK diocese, whose groups can vary in sizes up to and regularly above 1,000 pilgrims, to organise their annual pilgrimages by means of chartering planes, trains and coaches and providing a complete travel package.


Associated Companies

Tangney Tours also incoroporates the following trading names: Mancunia Travel, SPES Travel and St Peters Pilgrims for Lourdes.

Please be careful not to book your pilgrimage with any company having a similar name without first checking that they have their own operating licenses.

We don't want you to lose your, or your friends, money with an unlicensed operator.


Tangney Tours prides itself on being one of the few travel companies that is fully bonded for your financial protection and peace of mind. We hold an ATOL licence, are ABTA bonded and are members of the Association of Independent Tour Operators (AITO). You can book your trip with the confidence knowing that you will be looked after by our dedicated team and your money will be safe.
