We hope you find this information helpful, and that you will have many enjoyable walks with the Club.

Please note that we operate a waiting list system for booking our private hired buses.  This means that it may not always be possible to book onto a forthcoming private bus at short notice, especially on more popular walks.  Don’t let this put you off though.  We sometimes get cancellations, and you’ll normally be able to get out on one of our walks without too much delay.  No pre-booking is required for service bus walks, so these can provide a good introduction to the Club.
