Who are we?

  • CLOG (Central London Outdoor Group) is a friendly outdoor activity group for people living in and around London. We are happy to welcome anyone who enjoys walking and exploring our wonderful countryside
  • we are a membership organisation. Most people attending events will be paid-up members but there are often a couple of prospective members from Meetup also trying out the group
  • you’re welcome to attend up to three events for free. Most day walks and social events are free; you normally have to be a paid-up member to go on trips away
  • after that we ask that you pay the subscription and become a full member. Our modest membership subscription includes some food & drink at social events and pays for our running costs
  • new members get the first year half-price at a bargain £15 for the entire year which is just over £1 per month (normal annual membership is £30). You can join at http://www.membermojo.co.uk/clog
  • our members are of all ages, from all walks of life and of many different nationalities
  • we are a non-profit-making club which was founded in 1937. We originally organised walking weekends staying in cheap accommodation such as youth hostels. Today our trips stay in a variety of accommodation

Fully paid-up members receive the following benefits:

  • trips away; priority always goes to paid-up members
  • only a selection of events are posted on Meetup
  • advance notice of walks and trips
  • a “hotline” email summarising the forthcoming week’s events
  • discounts in outdoor gear shops
  • our newsletter, which is published every few months
  • a group discount if organising a trip to a YHA hostel
  • tips on how to organise walks, trips and social events
  • the chance to put something back in if you want to. All our events are led voluntarily by our members

How many of us are there?

  • you’re welcome to join us and you can just turn up, but if you tell us you’re coming we can look out for you; no need to let us know if you don't intend to join us
  • day walks normally attract 10-20 people; most existing members just turn up rather than say they’re coming

How to find us

  • most of our walks start from railway stations. We often meet near the ticket office at a London mainline station
  • look out for people dressed as if they’re going on a walk (the leader may have a map!) and ask around for CLOG (Central London Outdoor Group) if you’re not sure who we are
  • some members join the train at stations along the way or drive to the start of the walk. If you can’t find us, get on the train and meet us at the destination station
  • if you want to contact the organiser, ring our hotline on 020 8281 3164 to get their number

Our walks programme includes:

  • day walks near London, mostly at weekends
  • weekend trips to hills and mountains (eg the Lake District, Snowdonia)
  • longer holidays even further afield (eg Ireland, Scotland, France, Italy, Croatia etc)

We also arrange social events in London, including:

  • monthly themed social gatherings
  • evening walks
  • cinema, theatre and gallery visits
  • pub and restaurant events

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
