Contemporary Art7 Activities
We meet six times a year to visit contemporary art galleries around London. The aim is to meet gallery directors and curators and have a conversation about the art on display. Comments and critiques are highly encouraged and no experience or knowledge of art is necessary.
Country Walks1 Activity
The beautiful English countryside is crisscrossed with many interesting walking routes. This is a group for those who like to get out of the big city and explore the countryside on foot. We will travel by train and also stop for a lunch break. Each of our walks has been given a rating between 1 (undemanding) to 9 (the most effort required). They take into account the length of the walk, the amount of climbing, and the steepness of the terrain.
