Shared experiences…

…for all shapes and sizes

Stories about great group trips we’ve made, suggestions for places to go and things to see, and tips on how to organise great group activities

We’re back!

A few months ago we paused our content due to the Coronavirus pandemic, but we’ve missed sharing all our wonderful ideas and experiences with you, so we think it’s time to press play on Great Group Trips once again!

In the past few months, everyone has been adapting and adjusting to the current situation, and the world has adapted in innovative ways to make group travel possible once again!

Although we should still be taking precautions because of the ongoing pandemic, there are ways you can still safely enjoy group travel in the UK and around the world. We’ll be posting tips and ideas on places you and your group can go and how you can get there, whilst maintaining government guidance on social distancing.
