London Revisited Group
This group is dedicated to providing our members with the opportunity to visit, within Greater London, buildings that are normally inaccessible to the general public but which can be arranged for pre booked groups such as ours with the benefit of in-house guides.
The places of interest can include museums, churches, historic guilds, exhibitions, trade and professional organisations, palaces and other historic buildings as well as occasional guided walks.
Our usual day for such outings is the last Wednesday of the month although we try to arrange an occasional outing on the Tuesday. Certain venues are, however, only available on other midweek days. We arrange approximately 10 events within the year.
Where possible we look to arrange places for 20/25 members (some venues will allow more) and also try to include tea/coffee within the cost of the outings.
This is not a closed group and is open to all members providing they register their interest with the group leader. The schedule/dates/costs of the outings are displayed in 'Dates for Your Diary' below and also on the EVENTS page of Ealing U3A website. The group convener will also announce the outing at a regular Thursday morning meeting and will take names/monies the following Thursday, during the interval, on a first come basis - members CANNOT pre book by way of email but by personal attendance only.

Further visits in 2020
I am looking to put together a couple of outings for June & July to Greenwich (a Tuesday & Wednesday) taking in a short guided visit to St Alfege Church who was martyred here in 1012. Next, following a break for refreshments in the Heritage centre, on to a guided visit to the Old Royal Naval College to view Wren’s landmark building and The Painted Hall. I imagine the cost will be about £10/12pp and I would look to travel to Greenwich by DLR and possibly return via the river boat.
Full details of these outing to follow on our return for the Spring Term in mid-April.
