What we're about

Are you interested in socialising with a broad international mixture of people?
London International Meetup is an active group which arranges several different activities most weeks. It has been established since 2003 and has one of the largest memberships. Group sizes are restricted to appropriate levels and each event will have a small meetup charge to cover the organisation costs and to ensure the quality of the events.

Our regular events include:

- Social evenings (usually up to 40 people)
Come and meet other members. It is a friendly group and you will be welcomed by the organiser when you arrive. We try to use locations which do not have a lot of background noise. Food and drinks (both alcoholic and non-alcoholic) are available.

- UK day trips (usually up to 20 people)
We organise day trips on most weekends, usually to a location within England. We travel by public transport (train and local buses or taxis). These are social events - in most cases the group remains together throughout the day, except when going to a busy festival.

- Theatre shows (usually up to 10 people)
See a musical or play in one of the many theatres in London. This is a cheaper and more sociable way to enjoy either West End or off-West End shows.

- Walks (usually up to 20 people)
There is a monthly walk on a Sunday afternoon. Usually this follows a section of one of the special walking routes (eg the London Loop, the Capital Ring or the Thames Path). Lunch is usually in a pub or cafe along the route. A distance of 7-10 miles is followed at a sociable, medium pace.

If you reply Yes to an event, please make sure that you turn up (or if necessary change your reply on the meetup website if you are unable to come). For events which involve tickets (eg day trips or theatre/concerts) usually you will be asked to give your full name and mobile phone number when you reply - please make sure that you provide these so that you can be contacted if necessary. You may be removed from the group if you do not show up for a day trip or theatre show without changing your reply or notifying the organiser.

Thames Path: Hampton Court to Shepperton (riverside walk)

Hampton Court Railway Station


Join us for a lovely/easy walk enjoying the interesting sights of the Thames Path. This walk will follow the river travelling west from Hampton Court to Shepperton via Walton-on-Thames (about 8 miles / 13km). You can leave the walk at any point along the route. There will be an optional pub lunch. The walk will be led by Thomas. Meet him at 9:30am underneath the big clock at Waterloo station. We will be catching this train: 09:57 London Waterloo 10:01 Vauxhall 10:06 Clapham Junction 10:09 Earlsfield 10:13 Wimbledon 10:16 Raynes Park 10:19 New Malden 10:21 Berrylands 10:25 Surbiton 10:30 Thames Ditton 10:33 Hampton Court If you prefer to travel by another route and want to meet Thomas outside the station at Hampton Court soon after 10:30am then that is also possible. Note that Hampton Court is in zone 6. The end point of the walk (Shepperton) is outside London zones - trains from there go to Waterloo. You should be back at Waterloo before 5pm. * There are often engineering works at weekends. Please check your route to the meeting place using this link: https://tfl.gov.uk/plan-a-journey * We cannot wait for you if you are late, because it is not fair on the others to delay the walk. There is a £2 meetup charge for this event. Please pay Thomas when you join the group. Thomas' mobile number is[masked]. If decide not to come on the walk after putting your name down as coming please change your reply.
