Group details

NB OUTINGS are presently suspended due to the Covid 19 situation.  We hope to resume in the late spring/early summer of 2021 and look forward to seeing you all again for more, enjoyable excursions!

We hold around 10 Outings a year during which we visit a wide range of interesting, unusual, famous and lesser-known locations around London and the Home Counties. Many are within London and are accessible by public transport, but for those venues further afield, we travel by coach.

Details of current and future Outings are publicised in the Flyers, which can be seen below.

PLEASE NOTE: Some Outings involve more walking, stairs or uneven ground, so please read the Flyer thoroughly to check whether the venue will be suitable for you.


From 2021 onwards bookings will be taken by email, chronologically, not by queueing as we used to do in Hartley Hall.

The ‘Opening Date for Booking’ will be clearly displayed on each Outings’ Flyer.

Please note that NO applications will be accepted before the advertised date.

Your email application should state clearly:

  1. The name and date of the Outing
  2. Your name / s (max. 2 per email application)
  3. Your MHU3A Mem. No. / s
  4. Number of tickets requested (max. 2 tickets per email application)
  5. Total amount to be paid
  6. A contact phone number (for use on the day of the Outing).


Payment will be taken by BACS, details of which will be on each Outing’s Flyer.

“Joining Instructions” will be emailed out approx. ten days before each Outing, with details of the assembly point, guidelines from the venue, duration and sometimes with public transport suggestions or maps.

The Outings Team Volunteers

We have eight wonderful volunteers, Liz Allden, Antoinette Azzopardi, Liz Driscoll, Sheila Gottsche, Jennifer Morris, Carol Price, Simeone Salik and Stuart Trogal, who research, select, liaise-with & book the venues and coaches, and take your bookings.
