Summer Outings 2018

Each year the Society arranges Summer Outings to places of interest. Arrangements for the 2018 outings are in progress and will be added as they are organised.
Wednesday 16th May. Visit to Bishop's Palace, Fulham
Meet at 10.45 am at the main entrance to Fulham Palace in Bishop's Park.

For centuries Fulham Palace was the country residence of the Bishop of London, Lord of the Manor of Fulham, and in the last century became his only home. The Bishop moved out in 1975 and now lives near St Paul’s Cathedral. 
Fulham Palace consists of a Tudor manor house with Georgian additions and Victorian chapel – the tour visits all areas open to the public, including the gardens (weather permitting) and explores this rich history.

Booking for this outing is now CLOSED
Organiser: Jane Shemilt

Tuesday 29th May. Outing to London Transport Museum Depot, Acton
Meet at 11.15am at entrance to Museum Depot opposite Acton Town Station.

The tour starts at 11.30am and is to see the historic art and poster collection housed at the museum. Because of the numbers we will be split into two groups. The tour will last approximately one and a half hours.

Advance booking is essential as there is a limit on numbers. The charge is £5 per person. Outing organiser is Susan Toms.

Thursday 28th June. Outing to Bekonscot Model Village, Beaconsfield

Meet at the entrance at 6.30pm.

The outing will consist of  talk lasting half an hour followed by a tour of the village for one and a half/two hours. Please note members must make their own way there by car or public transport. The Model Village is a few minutes from Beaconsfield Station on the Chiltern Line which runs from West Ruislip and South Ruislip.
