A chance to see some of the more unusual and sometimes strange places in our Capital City!
We have fourteen groups meeting monthly on Monday(2), Tuesday(2), Wednesday(2), Thursday(6) and Friday(2).
All start from usually either Waterloo or Victoria Stations at 1030 hours and finish by 1500 hours to take advantage of off peak railway fares.
Onward transport wherever possible is by bus using bus passes.
The distance covered is some 3 to 4 miles and stops are sometimes made for coffee and always for lunch.
The research and leading of the walks is undertaken by members themselves usually working in pairs which means that each does just one or two a year.
There are no charges - other than rail fares and any admission fees. We would suggest comfortable walking shoes.
