Group details

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. We will expect members to be vaccinated and to wear masks (subject to changes in the Covid situation)

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

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


Bookings will be taken by email, chronologically in order of receipt. Only MHU3A members may apply. The email address for booking is:-

The Opening Date and Time for booking will be clearly displayed on each Outings’ Flyer. Please note that NO applications will be accepted before the advertised time.

  2. Your name / s  and Membership no/ s
  3. Number of tickets, (max. 2 members) and total cost

Your Payment

Payment will be accepted by BACS or cheque (not cash). Details of how to pay will be sent, within 7 days, in the email confirming your successful application.

“Joining Instructions”

Joining Instructions (J.I’s for short) will be emailed to you 7 -10 days before each Outing, with details of the meeting place, 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. Please feel free to express your appreciation for them if you enjoy the Outings.
