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. In the summer we also have day trips outside of the capital by train or coach to explore historical towns and walks in the countryside.

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.
