TALES FROM THE WOODS THURSDAY CLUB AND SUNDAY CLUB
Our Thursday Club events are social outings held on a weekday (usually Thursday as the name implies, but where the situation demands,
on other days of the week) where you can meet up with fellow Woodies. It may be a visit to a museum or a stately home, a walk in the countryside
or a visit to an urban nature reserve, or a pub crawl. We may start off or end the day in a reasonably priced eating house.
We also arrange weekend outings - usually on Sundays - to places of interest or special events.
Events are usually in London or the surrounding areas but we are open to suggestions for other destinations.
A selection of unique pubs around Belgravia. Meet at The Fox and Hounds public house, 29 Passmore Street, London, SW1W 8HR. 14.30hrs (Sloane Sq. tube)
In this up-market part of London there are numerous historic ale houses, all serving real ale at normal pub prices. We shall visit pubs where the Great Train Robbery
was planned, a Beatles watering hole, a pub where Lady Lucan, covered in blood, ran into on the night of the murder of the children's nanny by Lord Lucan, who hasn't been seen since.
Other forthcoming Thursday Club and Social Outings
Further events will be added. Any suggestions will be welcomed.
