Current Group Status: Vacancies

This Group has been running – or should I say strolling – for about 11 or 12 years. Started as a new splinter group when Tony & I joined Group 1 and after our first trip up to London and were told “You seem to know a lot about London and we need to start a new group as this one is too big so perhaps you’d like to do that?” Both born and raised in south London, and proud of this great city, we agreed. Sadly now it is just me running the group but we do have a lot of fun.

We meet every 4th Friday at Leatherhead Railway Station, usually aiming for the 9.23 to London.

One or two members of the group, having done a recce beforehand, will lead us around an area and tell us about the history of that part of London. We stop for coffee and then later on lunch, usually in an old or interesting Pub. We travel largely by train and then bus as we all have bus passes and it is more interesting. We have a lot of laughs and we try to learn a little bit about this wonderful town. We keep the number of members to 12 as we find anything more gets a little unmanageable on buses and in restaurants or pubs.

If you would like to know more and want to go on our waiting list please get in touch.
