Social Activities @ YMCA Hawker

Out and about with YMCA Hawker

Join us for a range of excursions, walks, meet-ups and more.


Our fortnightly walks are FREE* and start from YMCA Hawker, leaving promptly at 10am and returning mid-afternoon. 

The wonder of The Wandle – Monday 12 June
Enjoy the history and the stunning nature of this typical chalk stream – which goes unnoticed as industrial London bustles by. From Clapham Junction station we catch the tram to Wandle Park where we pick up the start of the trail. We follow it through Beddington Park and on to Morden Hall Park where we can enjoy a light lunch before taking the tram and train home. [About 4.5 miles, flat and mostly paved.]

The Mole gap – Monday 26 June
You won’t want to miss this beautiful walk along the banks of the River Mole, through the mighty North Downs, taking in parkland and water meadows. We catch the bus to Box Hill and follow the course of the river to Leatherhead, where we can relax over lunch. [About 4 miles, some inclines and possibility of mud.]

*Although free, we ask you to pay your own expenses including transport and refreshments. Please wear appropriate clothing and footwear. It is your responsibility to ensure that you are in good enough health to participate in these walks.


Excursions  are a great way of getting out and about, visiting beautiful places and enjoying the company of friends, old and new. Join us on a monthly excursion with pick up by minibus from YMCA Hawker by arrangement.  Book today at the centre or call 020 8296 9747.

Thursday 22 June: Brighton 
Join us on our annual day trip to Brighton to enjoy the wonderful coast. Whether you’d like to stick with us or explore on your own, this quintessential English beach town has much to offer. With boutique shops along The Lanes and iconic attractions there’s a lot to explore. You could enjoy some traditional fish and chips, and take a walk along the pier or experience the new British Airways i360 Centre. This is always a popular trip so make sure that you book in advance to avoid disappointment.
