Weekends Away

For anyone who wants the full Social Circle experience, our weekends away never fail to deliver. Whether it's a walking trip for ramblers, an adventure-filled weekend for adrenalin seekers, or a European city break for holiday lovers, bonds are built, with members time and again making friends for life on our weekends away. Being in Manchester offers advantages outside of all the wonderful things to do right here at home: we are just a stone's throw away from the Lakes and the Peak District, and not far away from the likes of Anglesey, as well some wonderful European destinations.

New Walking Friends On Walking Weekends

Walking has been a lifelong passion of mine but it's one that not many of my friends share. And even the ones who do only have time to go to the Lakes for a few hours. So I couldn’t wait to go on a walking weekend with Social Circle. I've met so many new walking friends on these weekends and have taken my passion to a new level.

Perfect Social Circle Holidays

I used to take regular trips to Spain but the mates I used to go with are now married with kids and so I hadn't been able to go for ages. Fortunately, Social Circle's holidays are perfect for those just like me who love nothing more than fun and socialising. The weekend was organised down to the last detail. I couldn’t have been more impressed.

Unsure What To Expect

I had never been on holiday with people I didn't know before, so I was a bit unsure as what to expect. But from the opening night in Milan when we all went to dinner, I immediately felt at ease. It soon dawned on me that everyone was in the same boat and just wanted to enjoy themselves while meeting new people at the same time. Mission accomplished! Thanks for a great trip, Social Circle!


Types Of Event


Walking Weekends

With a mix of low-level and high-level walks, inclusive accommodation and your walking and social guide, these weekends offer a complete walking experience. Our members get a real sense of achievement, with certificate to boot, and heaps of FUN!

Adventure Weekends

With the same benefits as our walking weekends, our adventure excursions are for those seeking more adrenalin than comfort. Among our more adventurous weekends is the Three Peaks Challenge. We also feature weekends, with such activities as abseiling and coasteering.

European City Breaks

This is one area in which we have really expanded, in response to our members demanding more trips to such destinations as Italy and Spain. From cultural hotspots to sun, sea, and sand, these weekends are nothing but fun! With accommodation and your Social Circle guide included, you simply need to book your flight.
