Coach Outings

All coach outings are open to all members

Full details of all our outings are published on the website and appear once in our Link newsletter thereafter a condensed description will be used.

Warner Studios: Hogwarts in the Snow

This runs from 18 November 2018 to 28 January 2019. Tickets are priced at £39. If more than 10 go then a group rate will apply. A coach can be arranged.

If anyone is interested in going to see this please contact Wendy MacKenzie.

Day trips

We organise a variety of day trips with an educational theme throughout the year often picking up Blue Badge Guides en route. We aim to cater for a number of different tastes using comfortable coaches with toilet facilities and drivers we know. The journey on the coach should last around an hour and a half before our first stop.

Holidays

We usually organise a Spring, Summer and Autumn holiday every year lasting no longer than five days. All our holidays are organised through an ATOL bonded travel agent. You will need to organise your own travel insurance as U3A Public Liability insurance does not provide Personal Accident cover.

How to book

All bookings are on a first come first served.

To book email Wendy MacKenzie the Outings Co-ordinator or see her at the Wodson monthly meeting where your membership number, name, telephone number and departure point will be taken.

It would be greatly appreciated if you paid for your outings and deposit for holidays, with cheques made payable to Ware U3A unless otherwise indicated when booking.

Wodson Park pick up / parking

Please note: Large coaches are no longer able to go into Wodson and instead will use the bus stop outside; smaller coaches are unaffected by this change. On the day, please go to Wodson as normal and you will be advised where to wait.

For days out, parking at Wodson is increasing difficult, due to their need for spaces. Please consider an alternative joining point. For example, the Library where there is a car park or Fire Station (Baldock Street car park). They both have all day parking or Kings Hill.
