Home : Weekend Trips
This term, as well as the Freshers Meet, we've organised four fantastic Weekend Trips allowing you to take a much-needed break from your studies. These visit some of Britain's finest regions. Here's hoping for some good weather to enjoy those views!
All Weekend Trips, apart from the Freshers Meet, will depart from Oxford (Trinity Gates on Broad Street) on Friday afternoon and return late on Sunday to utilise two full days of walking. The stated price usually includes transport, accommodation for two nights and five hearty meals - a real bargain! The only meals not covered are dinner on Friday and Sunday evenings - a dinner stop will be made to break up the journey in each case. Please note that because the club has to commit money to organise the trips, once you have paid for your place, you can not be refunded unless the place is subsequently filled. Prices are dependant on the price of the accommodation and the distance from Oxford. (PTL = Principal Trip Leader)

Everybody should be prepared to help out before and during the trip (shopping, cooking, etc.) and planning and carrying out the walks. You could have a look at guidebooks, the internet and maps to get ideas before the trip. The trip organiser and leaders can give suggestions and may arrange for an informal meet up before the trip.
To sign up for trips please come along to the Free Tea on Wednesday 10th October (1st Week) -- see here for all the details. At Free Tea you can chat with the organisers and leaders to find out more about the trips and then decide which ones you want to sign up for. If you cannot come to Free Tea but would like to sign up for trips, the please send a cheque made payable to 'OU Walking Club' to the Trip Organiser by the end of 1st Week.
