Adderley Travel Limited
Adderley Travel Limited is an Anglo-Swedish family business formed by us, Timothy and Sofia Ray in 1999.

We started the business shortly after Ryanair's first low-fare services from Stansted to Stockholm, and these services - the first low-fare flights between our two countries - enabled us to plan tours for our new audience. Initially, we planned all sorts of tours, but garden tours sold well, and we quickly became the specialists we are today.

Initially too, we concentrated our marketing in Sweden and its neighbouring Nordic nations, but the internet soon finds new friends and, today, we operate tours across the United Kingdom, for more than twenty different nationalities.

We love what we do, we take great pride in doing it, and we know that our customers like what we do, too - and we are particularly proud that so many of our customers return to us again, and again.

The Ray family
In the early 1990's Sofia was studying at Stockholm's Hotel & Restaurant college whilst, across the North Sea, Tim was moving his business out of London, to the tranquillity of the Norfolk countryside. We met - as one does - in February 1993, on the Indonesian island of Java, while we were both travelling around the world, in opposite directions!

After lots of letters and telephone calls - no sms or emails in '93! - Sofia moved to Britain in early 1994 and they married in Norfolk, in April 1997. Today, together with Tim's father and our four children - Alice, Lily, Charles and Edward - we live as an extended family in Wymondham, a medieval market town just south-west of Norwich, Norfolk.

Adderley
Adderley is the maiden name of Tim's paternal great-grandmother. A large family with many branches, but all stemming, we think, from the village of Adderley in Shropshire. Our branch, which we trace to 1510, has in it Tim's great-great-great uncle, William Alsager Adderley, who co-founded the Staffordshire china manufacturer, Adderley's.
