The Travel Team seeks competitive prices for our travel and arranges for group reductions at venues. We do not receive any personal discount on these visits; all discounts are shared between the group for the day/ holiday.
We plan a varied programme of visits and holidays during the year. Suggestions for future venues are always welcome.
In the event of a member being unable to participate in a visit, it is the member's responsibility to contact the Travel Team organiser for the particular visit. Refunds will only be given if the ticket can be resold. The organiser's telephone number is on the receipt.

Pick up times: Bedgrove Sainsbury's layby 8.15 Ashbrook 8.25 The George 8.30
Spitalfields takes its name from the hospital and priory, St Mary’s Spittel founded in 1197.
It was in a field next to the priory where the market started in the 13th century. A Royal Charter granted by King Charles II gave a right to hold a market on the site on Thursdays and Saturdays.
Its popularity led to an influx of Huguenot silk weavers, followed by Irish weavers, East European Jews and since the 1970s a thriving Bangladeshi community.
Post Office Museum
After lunch (not included in cost) take a ride through history on the miniature trains of MailRail. Explore the Subterranean tunnels and hear stories of those who kept it running for more than 75 years.
The carriages for the Post office museum are adequate but a little tight on seating
