We are a very friendly and successful outdoor and Social group. Our group is long established with the majority of our members living in London. We offer a wide variety of outdoor activities led by experienced walk leaders. Our core programme offers a weekly hike, about 20 weekends away each year, regular training (see details below), evening walks and social events. We also arrange camping trips (see details below), regular cycle rides (off road & on road) and organise hill walking, horse riding hacks, sailing adventures, caving & canoeing excursions as part of our weekends away.
As we are affiliated to the YHA (since 1934) we benefit from YHA discounts at all hostels. We are a non profit making voluntary group. Thus we can offer very competitively priced trips away. All our walks & bike rides are free.
Typical costs for a weekend away for camping are £20 total, bunk house/cottage, £25, YHA hostel £30 total cost.
Our group aims to train all members in navigation, leadership & first aid skills so that they become qualified walk leaders,
We benefit from our own hall where we arrange regular social events, BBQs, new members social evenings, training events and an annual awards ceremony where everyone can join up to celebrate the year, Anyone can attend our hall event if they want to meet us before joining us on a walk or weekend away.
All our walks are researched and selected to provide top views, lots of variety and historic features with a great pub to visit on route.
We have long experience of camping trips; all our sites allow camp fires and bbqs. We also book sites in the Malvern Hills and Cotswold (great walking areas) where the lack of YHAs mean camping is the best way to enjoy the countryside; we have a stock of modern tents & other equipment to lend out to new campers.
All our day events are free. Membership provides benefits such as affiliated YHA membership and discounts at all major outdoor shops.
