What we're about

Welcome to the London Cultureseekers Group!

If you're interested in exploring London's history & culture with other like minded people, then this is the only group you need to join! We are London's largest cultural and history group!

We meetup 2-3 times a week to explore museums, art galleries, historical buildings, go on guided walks and history talks. We also have historic treasure hunts, visit the theatre, have coffee evenings, social evenings, meals and attend classical music concerts.

The group is very friendly, we have members from 20 to 80 years old, across all backgrounds. The group has been running for over 13 years and is a great way to meet and make new friends. Plus after events we generally head to a local pub or cafe to chat.

[ONLINE] Cultureseekers History & Culture Quiz - General London!

Join us online on Saturday 28th November at 1:30pm for a general quiz about London! The quiz will be a picture quiz and all you have to do is guess the correct answer (some questions will be multiple choice) to general questions about London! No teams, just answer the questions individually. Please have a pad and pen to write down your answers. For future quizes, could everyone make sure to stay muted when questions or answers are being said. If you didn't hear a question, please unmute and ask, but make sure to mute again afterwards. If lots of people are unmuted, it creates lots of background noise and can make it harder for others to hear.

One evening every 2 weeks in November/December, we will be having a series of talks titled 'Historic English Cities'.

About the third talk - Gloucester Gloucester sits on the edge of the Cotswolds and the Mendip Hills, about 110 miles west of London. It has a population of about 130,000 and is linked to the River Severn via a canal system. The Romans who had a settlement here from 48AD called it 'Colonia Glevum Nervensis' and it was an important crossing of the River Severn and near to the Fosse Way, which was an important Roman road. A major attraction of the city is Gloucester Cathedral, built in the 11th century on the site of an abbey dating back to 678. It is known for its stunning fan vaulted ceilings, it is the burial place of King Edward II and features in scenes from the recent Harry Potter films. A good number of medieval and Tudor period gabled and half timbered houses survive from earlier periods of Gloucester's history. Cost is £4 per person (payable when you RSVP). Please note: you won't be able to pay via the app, only the full site. You also don't need a Paypal account to pay, just a credit card.
