Hopping Events

 So, what are our “hopping” weekends? Well, do you remember those “I-Spy” books that you used to be able to buy, where you could tick off things as you saw them? Same principle.

We started off running “Groundhopping” weekends for football fans who like to “collect” football grounds – and that means watching games at as many different venues as possible. Our customers range from those who are just starting out on the hobby to the experienced “hopper”, who will number the grounds visited for a game in four figures. We still run a number of these events each season, and they remain incredibly popular.

Applying that same theory to other pastimes reminded me of visits to stately homes and castles when I was a child. A little research showed that there were people out there who “ticked” castles rather than football grounds, or wanted to visit as many National Trust properties as they could, or Museums, or Islands. There are those who want to have a drink in every pub in the Good Beer Guide, or visit every Wetherspoons pub.

The list is endless, but it’s Grand Days Out who specialise in building those weekends and trips for you.

Have a look at what we do – and just to add to the fun we also produce a booklet for each trip so that you can tick off the ones you’ve been to! It’s all part of making it a Grand Day Out!
