It's all about walking... relaxing... socializing... and having fun... Lot's of fun!
We all know how stressfull London life can be and how precious our leisure time is to recharge our batteries and get some fresh air... before we start yet another week!
THE WALKABOUT CLUB organizes great escapes... from Short Walks in beautiful areas of London to full Days Out walking in the countryside in areas of outstanding natural beauty such as the North Downs, South Downs, Thames Path, Chilterns etc. We also organize Weekends Away and Short Breaks further afield in Dorset, Devon, Cornwall or the Lake District... to name but a few. There will be plenty of free social events in London too.
We take great care with researching and testing our events and only offer the very best ones. We don't cut corners and aim to give our members a good time in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere, where the "club and community spirit" prevails. Our groups are small and that makes it easy to get to know each other. Our experienced guides won't be on holiday when you are!
THE WALKABOUT CLUB is open to all: walkers, outdoor types and nature lovers. It is completely free to join with no membership fees. For the Days Out of London we charge a small fee to cover group travel and organizing costs, so that when we meet at the departing station everything is in place and you don't need to queue for last minute tickets. We do the logistics... you enjoy your day. We aim to keep costs low because we know you work hard for your money... and a great day out does not need to cost a fortune!
THE WALKABOUT CLUB is here... Where are you?
