What we're about
Day Trips from London is brought to you by the main organisers of one of the largest and best reviewed groups on Meetup.com - Friends in London. (https://www.meetup.com/friends-in-london/)We've been organising some of the most popular meetup events for 10 years.
We organise regular Day Trips from London to some of the most historic and beautiful places in the UK. The destinations we have visited so far include; Bath, Birmingham Christmas Market, Blenheim Palace, Bournemouth, Brighton, Bristol, Broadstairs Viking Bay, Cambridge, Canterbury, Cardiff, Christchurch, Corfe Castle, Cotswolds, Durdle Door, Ely, Lulworth Cove, Newmarket Race Course, Oxford, Poole, Portsmouth, Rye, Rochester, Salisbury, Sandbanks, Seven Sisters, Stratford upon Avon, Wales, Weymouth, White Cliffs of Dover and Winchester Christmas Market.
The vast majority of our trips involve booking luxury air conditioned coaches. We also organise shorter trips via train and have organised boat trips. Our Day Trips from London also regularly include guided tours and visits to famous attractions as part of the package.
The social part of the Day Trips is just as important. So we also arrange optional After-Trip-Drinks when we return to London in the late evening. This gives everyone the chance to continue socialising, discuss your day trip experience and continue making friends over a few drinks.
Joining any new meetup group can be overwhelming as the choice is so wide and varied. However, we have a proven track record of running very successful social events through our Friends in London Meetup Group. You can check out the reviews/ratings for the past 400 meetup events we have run on our sister Meetup Group by 'Clicking Here' (https://www.meetup.com/friends-in-london/).
Day Trips from London Meetup Group was founded 5 years ago by brothers Martyn Lloyd and Terry Lloyd who continue to host all events. Some of the meetup events we have organised together are often the best attended of any meetup group in the UK, so we're very experienced event organisers who are meticulous when it comes to planning details.
Mainly, it's also about having fun. On our Day Trips you'll be part of a club where everyone is there to socialise in addition to sight-seeing. The majority of members attend by themselves and we always ensure no-one is left out - so don't worry about being nervous or shy.
50 of the 53 trips we have organised so far have received a maximum overall rating of 5 stars from those members attending (reading the reviews/ratings of past events is so important for anyone deciding to join any meetup group). We hope to continue the high standard we have set on all future trips. This is why we always visit new destinations for our trips before they are scheduled. Sometimes we spend entire weekends in locations before deciding upon whether they would be suitable or not to organise a new meetup day trip. This ensures the events can be organised with as much detail as possible and we know that a destination will be suitable for our group.
Please note that unfortunately we can only offer our day trip to adults due to the vastly increased legal responsibilities that will otherwise be involved (and we are just meetup group and just do not have the resources to adjust this policy). However, providing members are adults (18 and over) all ages are welcome at our events.
