From arrival to departure we will make your stay unique and unforgettable!

Stunning Georgian accommodation just 50 yards from the legendary Whittington Castle situates you among thousands of acres of land to be detected. Local detecting sites are rich with over 5,000 years of recorded history.

Finds from Neolithic to Norman, and Elizabethan to Edwardian!

The areas we detect are steeped in history going back thousands of years. You will be metal detecting in areas where Bronze Age man marked out their settlements and enclosures, where Roman legions marched, camped, waged war and even lived, where the Welsh Princes' battled against the English sovereignty to reclaim the border many times.

"Thank you Chris for a fantastic metal detecting adventure. The fields and finds were phenomenal, as are the friendships that developed over the stay. In the end, the thrill of the many ancient finds will be remembered, but not overshadowed by the entire experience of living and detecting in the comfort of a small English village with genuinely warm English friends. I am already planning another visit and look forward to my next adventure with Metal Detecting Holidays."

We just got back from a ten days of detecting in England hosted by Metal Detecting Holidays!  Had an incredible time.  We found some really awesome medieval artifacts and coins, but beyond that, our hosts John and Louise were great and really took care of us with excellent food and accommodations in a beautiful old English home only two minutes on foot from Whittington castle and a fun little pub/restaurant with local brews on tap.  Our guide Chris shuttled us to and from all the sites, provided lunches in the field, and was very knowledgable about the local history, coins and artifacts.  The English countryside was beautiful, and we were only a short drive away from some tourist sites in Wales.  Can't wait to go back again someday!!!

Adventure of a lifetime!  I wanted to take the opportunity to highly recommend the tour offered by Metal Detecting Holidays.  I’ve just returned after an amazing ten days of metal detecting which included finding a hoard of King John short cross hammered coins!  Chris Langston is your tour guide and is absolutely a wonderful person!  His enthusiasm for the hobby is infectious and you can easily see he takes pride in his tour.  John and Louise are your hosts are also very friendly.  They offer comfortable accommodations and send us on our way each day with a packed lunch!  Not to be missed in all of this is the beautiful countryside and views you’ll have when detecting, it’ breathtaking.  Last, but not least, are the friendships that are formed during your tour.  I loved it so much I’ve already booked a return visit!!!
