About Us

Control Autoplay

A family business that has 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.

The History of Tangney Tours

Old Tangney Tours Coach
Nicholas and Pope John Paul II
Tom and John Tangney

We started out in 1974 providing coach tours for groups and societies from around the UK to Europe. The majority of these groups were travelling on wine tours, beer festivals, flower festivals and sporting events.

John Tangney first went on pilgrimage to Lourdes with his father in the early 1960’s. Dr Tom Tangney was a pilgrimage Doctor for the diocese of Southwark as well as for HCPT and other Pilgrimages.

In 1976, Tangney Tours started to provide pilgrimage travel to Lourdes and rapidly expanded into other destinations. We have grown from strength to strength and Nicholas, whilst going on pilgrimage since 1980, officially joined the family business in 2003.

Today we pride ourselves on being the best at what we do. We are supported by a fantastic team and most of all, enjoy looking after you.
