We are setting up a schedule of study trips, roughly one a month; those with a definite date are listed below in the diary, and early booking is advised - and there are some booking forms available in the 'links' section of this page. For the others, please register your interest at one of the U3A monthly meetings, or send a message by clicking on the bird icon (below or to the right, depending on your browser), and filling in the online form; this will let us get a better idea of likely numbers.

We do welcome input from you! Are you more interested in half-day excursions, full day ones... or perhaps even longer on occasion? What sort of places would you be interested in visiting? Let us know by clicking on the bird icon and filling in the online form!

See the diary section, below, for a list of upcoming events. Booking forms are available for download - see the links section - but at present we cannot take bookings or payments online.

Proposed excursions include:

  • Sutton Hoo, Woodbridge, Suffolk. The site of Anglo-Saxon burial mounds in which were discovered beautiful treasures from 1300 years ago. Replicas are displayed in the exhibition centre Also, there are guided tours and circular walks. Please note the proposed study trip to Sutton Hoo has been postponed because refurbishment of the site is still on-going. We will set a new date when all the work is completed.

Also proposed are visits to Snape Maltings, Southwold and London’s National Art Gallery.
