Social Activities @ YMCA Surbiton

Out and about with YMCA Surbiton

Excursions, walks, meet ups and more…

WALKS

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

Wednesday 7 June: Celebrating transport in London
By special request, we repeat this fantastic outing which includes travel by train, bus, DLR, cable car (£3.30 with Freedom Pass) and river boat (£3.25 with Freedom Pass). We’ll enjoy a relaxed lunch at the O2. [About 2 miles, flat and paved.]

Wednesday 21 June: Wandle Trail 
Enjoy the history and the stunning nature of this typical chalk stream – which goes unnoticed as industrial London bustles by. From Wimbledon 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 4.5miles, flat and mostly paved.]

Although free, personal expenses, such as transport and refreshments are for you to pay. Please wear appropriate clothing and footwear. It is your responsibility to ensure that you are in good enough health to participate in these walks.

TRIPS

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.

Senior Social Members, £30; Non-members, £35  

An annual senior social membership fee of £25 is required to be eligible for the discounted members rate (see below).
