Welcome to Outdoor Explorer - London's sociable hiking and photography meetup group. If you enjoy getting out of London and discovering scenic places, meeting new people whilst enjoying the Great British countryside then you've found the ideal meetup group.

Our group is vibrant, fun loving, adventurous and sociable. We organise scenic day hikes with convenient journey times from London and surrounding counties.

What to bring & wear? We encourage members to bring water & snacks, sensible clothing and appropriate foot ware for the weather conditions. Remember even on a sunny you can still find muddy paths in the countryside and its always best to be prepared for rain. Don't forget your camera if you have one as it's a great opportunity to socialise with fellow hikers and photographers. Our members have taken some amazing photos on previous walks and we encourage everyone to upload and comment on photos and rate all the events.

New to hiking? We welcome and positively encourage new members to "get out more and explore". Our hikes tend to be anything from 5 to 12 miles on average and always at a pleasant conversational pace with stops when needed to allow people to regroup.

Driving? We try to organise hikes that are also easily accessible for people who prefer to drive to the event rather than take the train. As such our hikes tend to start/finish at or close to local train stations with parking nearby, giving all members a choice of transport.

We don't agree with groups who charge you the full train fare and then purchase group saver tickets on your behalf. You can check the train ticket price for  'Group Saver' on www.trainline.com, and you can buy 'Group Saver' tickets at any London train station.

By booking, attending and participating any of our Meetup events (including on behalf of your guest bookings), you are confirming your have read, understand and agreed our Terms and Conditions, as stated on 'Terms and Conditions' page.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
