GLT Reader Club

Organising group trips and holidays can be hard enough, but how do you know if an attraction or destination is suitable unless you’ve been there yourself?

Through our special reader familiarisation trips, you can try before you buy. We’ve been offering readers of Group Leisure & Travel exclusive opportunities across Britain and abroad since 1996, made many new friends and had lots of fun.

What's Coming Up?

Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew

A familiarisation trip to Richmond taking in The Poppy Factory and Kew Gardens

Apply to join this Reader Club trip and experience the natural beauty of the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew followed by a visit to The Poppy Factory in Richmond on Saturday 26th March 2022.

Can I join a trip

If you regularly organise group trips and holidays we’d love you to join us on a future Reader Club familiarisation trip. However, our fam trips are not open to tour operators and other travel trade suppliers.

All we ask is that the trip is suitable for the groups of people you organise for and that you are seriously considering it as a future group visit.

We have visited the UK’s finest castles and historic homes, toured some of the country’s most interesting towns and cities, as well as sampling some of the best and most popular attractions for groups. We have also travelled far and wide.

Read our Trip Reviews below to see where we’ve been and what we’ve seen up until now, with comments from readers to get their view.
