Mark McFaul

Mark was born and raised in Somerset and developed a love of travel from a young age thanks to numerous family holidays across the globe, including Malta, America and Australia. However, Mark’s favourite holiday experience to date has to be travelling throughout Vietnam and exploring the countries fascinating history as well as its delicious food, with a cruise on the beautiful Halong Bay a particular highlight!

Mark moved to the North East to study at Newcastle University and now lives in Gateshead and started working here in October 2017, within the Marketing team.

As one of the newest members of the Artisan family, Mark is yet to experience many of our exciting destinations. However, having never experienced a holiday in the snow, high on Mark’s wish-list is one of our trips to Finland, Sweden and Canada where he would love to experience a Husky safari and explore the beauty of the Arctic wilderness up close. Having a love for good food, culture and history, Mark is also keen to explore the ancient history of the Greek islands as well as experiencing the culture and natural beauty of Madeira and the Azores.
