We set up in 1991 as the first post-Velvet Revolution Czech/English twinning (Bridgwater-Uherske Hradiste)-since this time we have developed from the usual 'twinning' programme (exchanges/ home hosting/civic co-operation etc) to a wider field of operation. So for instance-whilst we're always looking for schools in Czech Republic and Slovakia to link with schools here in Sedgemoor-we're quite happy to help schools further afield to make links-and because we have contacts in most parts of the the UK and the former Czechoslovakia we're ideally placed to organise all this. So-some of the things you might like to do through us…

We organise 'Practise your English in England' courses in Bridgwater-this involves coach parties of up to 50 staying at Youth Hostels in Somerset and a full cultural programme & English course organised by us.-if you want a specific theme/ programme/even location (not just Somerset) we can do it.

We also organise smaller groups for home hosting in Bridgwater with our members (maximum 12 at a time). This can be either as part of an English course-either run through the local college or cheaper and more informally through our members-many of whom have had teaching experience in the Czech republic.

We also offer individual homestay accommodation with our members -as above.

We take groups of people on tours of the Czech & Slovak Republics-mainly school to school but look below and you'll see our programme for the year includes anything from footballers to Iris lovers to Rock musicians as we are able to shape a programme to suit your special interests. This also now includes Poland (Krakow), The former Yugoslavia (Croatia and Slovenia specifically), Hungary and Lithuania.

We can also help you arrange individual trips to the UK or to the former Czechoslovakia.

We have also started a series of 'Round Britain Trips'-specially designed to suit the pockets and the 'special interests' of the people involved..-these are either minibus based or coach based and the trips are open to any Nationality. We also now offer 'Round Ireland' tours.

We are also able to offer Extended Stay breaks concentrating on different parts of the UK-such as North Wales, Cornwall,Yorkshire and Scotland.

We can help people who want to visit the Czech or Slovak Republics either in groups or independently-we can make all the travel arrangements, arrange a programme if you like, provide guides, or even just make some suggestions-we can get special ferry and flight prices and also provide guides and book accommodation .

We offer a slide show & talk about the Czech & Slovak Republics for anyone wanting to travel there and a slide show about Bridgwater, Somerset & the UK for Czechs & Slovaks.

Due to the Internationalist nature of our Organisation our offers are also open to other Nationalities.

Our programme is run by BRIDGWATER INTERNATIONAL – for more information click on the logo
