its own in the UK and uses hotels throughout the world -

Each year the group has a holiday in
Britain in the Spring. The advantage of group
holidays, apart from walking with friends, is that we
gain a small group discount on cost, and some evening
activities such as a quiz, board or paper games, or local
events are arranged. We may have around twenty five
people in a party, and in recent years, have been away
from Sunday to Friday.
We travel by coach, picking up at
Gants Hill, and Hawkey Hall, at Woodford Green, although
members are free to make their own way to the holiday.
We aim to arrive in mid-afternoon, giving time to
explore our surroundings and accommodation to get our
bearings before dinner.
Since 2010 the group has visited
other areas of the country not covered by HF for our
spring holiday, including Weymouth, the Malvern Hills,
Forest of Dean and Sidmouth, using selected hotels. Full
day walks, or shorter strolls with sightseeing are
offered, described in advance with distance and amount of
climbing involved, and chosen before setting off in the
coach to the start. There is also some flexibility for
planning a personal day out, provided the leaders are
aware of your plans and transport, for
HF houses offer full board,
selecting our own packed lunch contents each morning.
Hotels are close to shops making for easy organisation of
lunches,accommodation is half board with en suite rooms,
and there is sometimes a swimming pool
