Whether your group is into dancing, arts & crafts or photography, there’s a holiday to suit all interests - here’s a few of our favourites.
1. Pretty as a picture photography breaks
HF Holidays is offering a number of special interest getaways for 2020 including a variety of photography breaks from a 4-night ‘Northumberland Through a Lens Holiday’ to a 3-night ‘Isle of Wight Through a Lens’ in which you’ll visit the Needles, the island’s only National Nature Reserve and the marshes of the Yar Valley. It’s also running a number of Drone photography holidays led by commercially-qualified drone pilots and landscape photographers.
2. Get your dancing shoes on
If your members love getting on the dance floor then have a look at the 40-odd breaks offered by Isle of Wight Tours - the holidays cover locations throughout the UK and Channel Islands as well as overseas destinations, from Ballroom and Sequence to Bespoke Weekends. Some of its itineraries for 2020 include a “legendary line dance weekend” in the Channel Islands in April, staying at the Merton Hotel in Jersey and The All Stars 70’s Explosion Weekender taking place in Folkestone in May.
3. Those boots were made for walking
Like the idea of a walking holiday but want to ease your group in to it? Ramblers Walking Holidays is running a selection of new Cruise and Walk trips in 2020. You can select a holiday to suit your members’ preferred walking pace, ability and/or fitness. Among the options is a 22-night Amalfi Coast, Tuscany and the Italian Riviera trip taking in some of the country’s most sought-after destinations from Sorrento to Rome and Genoa.
4. Inspirational journeys of remembrance
Leger Holidays has a whole host of new battlefield tours for 2020 including Walking the Western Front, a 5-day tour covering some of the lesser-known battlefields of World War One in northern France including Fromelles, Loos, Arras and Cambrai. There’s also the Beer & Battlefields trip which takes in many sites in Belgium as well as visits to a selection of the best breweries.
5. Tee off at a leisurely pace
Do some of your members fancy themselves as the next Rory McIIory? If so a golf break may be just the ticket. There’s a number of holidays available for groups including bookings with Strathmore Hotels which runs several hotels next some well-known golf courses. A golf break at its Ben Nevis Hotel & Leisure Club at Fort William includes a night’s accommodation, a full Scottish breakfast and a round of golf at the nearby Fort William Golf Club Dragons Tooth (previously voted the best 9-hole course in Scotland).
