Day trip to Godstone (hiking, afternoon tea and wine)
Let us take you for a walk in Surrey Hills, designated as an area of outstanding beauty. ‘With its rich heritage of wooded slopes and rolling grassland, the Surrey Hills has provided inspiration to some of the Country's greatest artists and writers.’ - Penelope Keith DBE, Patron of the Surrey Hills AONB. Part of this walk will follow the footsteps of pilgrims on the North Downs Way. This national trail is known for its diverse and stunning landscapes. While quite hilly and strenuous at times, this hike offers breathtaking views. Halfway through we will stop at a little-known vineyard in Godstone for a traditional afternoon tea and try their exquisite sparkling wine. Their taste is best described by this analogy: ’Imagine a cloudless day in June, when the ditches are creamy with Meadowsweet and Cow Parsley, the air heavy with all the scents of Summer, aromas of splendour which we aim to encapsulate in every bottle of our English Wine.’ - Godstone Vineyards The trip is also available on our website: http://katsadventures.com/events/event/hiking-and-wine-tasting-in-godstone/ We will aim to get back to Clapham Junction for 3 pm, leaving you with plenty of time to enjoy your Saturday. Please note however that the exact time will depend on the walking speed of the group and can not be guaranteed. Difficulty level: 7 While short, there are a few steep climbs along the way that require a reasonable level of fitness. Length: 12 km. Price: £24.95 (+PayPalfee), including return train tickets, afternoon tea and glass of wine Meeting point: We will meet at Clapham Junction Station at the main entrance (the one with Sainsbury's), next to the ticket offices. Look out for the balloon with Curious Kat group's logo. Meeting Time: at 09:10 am We will make our way to the platform at 9:20 am. If you are late I'm afraid we will not be able to wait and you will be missing the trip. Of course, if you want, you can try to catch up with us at the platform, but the host will be making sure the group gets on the right train, so you will have to figure out the way. Also, you will have to find another way of getting in as I will have your train ticket. Train*: We will aim to take the 09:29 am train from Clapham Junction, arriving in Woldingham at 09:56 am. *Please note that as the rail network is very unreliable, those details might change depending on the train delays and we may take an earlier or later train. The decision might need to be taken by the leader on the spot to suit the group's needs. If you do not arrive at the meeting time, we can not guarantee that you will be able to catch up with the group as the leader may not be able to update you about any changes - even if you call or message them, as sometimes the phone network might not be available and often they might be busy taking care of the group. Leader's priority will always have to be the customers that arrived on time. We add the train details in order to help you out if you have problems getting to the meeting point on time, but take no responsibility for any changes - so the only way to ensure you do not miss out on the event is to arrive on time at the meeting point.

Curious Kat’s Adventure Club is a community of interesting and curious people who would like to explore London, England, and well, let’s think big - the world in general. :) If you would like to live your life to the fullest, have fun, make new friends and meet like-minded people this is the place for you.

I would love to build up a community through which we can not only share our ideas and put them in practice but through which we can also develop our full potential, network and achieve our goals and dreams. :)

How will we do it? Step by step. We will get to know each other on various adventures. Whether it's the great outdoors (hiking, walking, cycling, sightseeing, visiting places, camping, day trips, trips abroad, holidays) or unusual indoors where we can do a bit of social networking (ice bar, jazz venues, hidden gems that only few know about), dining (whether it’s fine dining or just off beaten track restaurant adventure) or something from the cultural menu which is so rich in London (theatres, galleries, cinemas) - all the ideas are welcome. I’m up for adventure and will try everything once. And I would most welcome your suggestions – if you come across something in line with the spirit of this group, please email me!

The best thing about the community is that there is space for everyone as each one of you has unique ideas and all the ideas are welcome. I truly believe that everyone has something valuable they can bring to the table and everyone has some hidden talents that might need to be unlocked.

What sort of events can you expect to find here? We have some hiking trips coming up – we love travelling, hiking and exploring countryside, whether it is around London or further afield. There are some weekend breaks on the horizon, travel UK and abroad, once again they will be filled with adventure – hiking, walking, kayaking… I will look into organizing some city breaks as well – Europe is just one hour away! And finally the World – we will go on longer holidays as well. I will look into community projects in Africa or India or other active ways of exploring other continents.

How else will we help each other? We have a message board through which we can share ideas, unusual finds, jobs, freebies, skills and anything that others can find useful. I would love to create a support network through which we can not only make new friends but also exchange skills and services. If you don’t wish to receive emails about this however, you can update your settings and opt out from the message board emails. I know that once you are getting too many of them they just end up annoying you! ;p

If you like the idea, please join and please tell your friends: katsadventures.com (http://katsadventures.com/)

Please note, due to UK legislation all the events are for adults only as we don't have the necessary checks and qualifications and all the other paperwork (and there is a multitude of them) needed to work with children.
