Events and Excursions

Gile Gilbert Scott in Oxford

Outings are usually guided walks within public open space with, in a few cases, access into a church or other public building, and this element may have to be omitted if access is not available at the time. The number of places for each outing is limited but we will keep a reserve list in case of cancellations.

We are not charging for the cost of the guides but, if there is cost for access into buildings, we will ask for payment in advance. Transport costs must also be paid in advance and a secure online PayPal link will be sent on confirmation of the booking. Refreshments may be offered, the cost of these can be usually made on the day.

Each member must make a separate booking as we have a limited number of places for each excursion. If a member would like to bring a friend, please give the friend's name but use the member's email address so we can allocate the booking correctly.

These excursions are only for OAHS members but if you would like to join OAHS, please see our Joining Details Page

Members with limited mobility must contact the Excursions Secretary, email: before booking an excursion to discuss whether special access arrangements can be made to buildings or locations. The Society will do its best to accommodate special needs, but reserves the right to refuse access to its events where, in the judgement of the Committee, the safety of an individual or of other participants is put at risk.
