Exploring London

This group is led by Ann Hunte and normally meets once a month to visit a place of interest in London.

From the start of the Pandemic until April, these meetings took place over Zoom and one of our own members, John Finn who is a City Guide, delivered very interesting talks about the history of London. You can read more about this on pages 8 and 9 in Lockdown Newsletter 2.
Also for a list of Exploring London activities during the Pandemic, check out Exploring London - Past Events.

We have resumed group visits and the details of the next visit will be below and on the Events page.

We may not always find free visits every month, but we try to choose places with low entrance charges. The day of the week varies to enable more members to attend.

If you like to be added to the group mailing list or have any queries or suggestion, please contact the Group Leader Anne Hunte by pressing on the link at the top right.
