Our Discovery Tours, operated by the award-winning HF Holidays, are a highlight of the year where members and their guests come from all corners of the country to explore a beautiful region.

This year we'll be staying at Longmynd House Country Hotel in Church Stretton, with its sweeping views across the Shropshire Hills.

By day we'll be visiting local sites of interest led by a HF Holidays guide who will give us the inside information on the Iron Age history and geography of the region.

We'll also visit the historic town of Ludlow and its 11th century castle and the 'Cradle of the Industrial Revolution' at Ironbridge.

It’s never too strenuous as we hop on and off the bus and we have plenty of breaks for food and drink. Back at the hotel, John will host us for dinner and we can enjoy the grounds or even a dip in the heated outdoor pool.
