What sort of walks do we do

Walks, hikes, rambles, whatever you call them, are the backbone of our outdoor calendar (highlighted in grey).  We normally have around three walks every week.

Many are day walks ranging from 8 to 16 miles while others are shorter afternoon or evening walks

Some day walks are in the countryside surrounding London in the Oyster Card Zones and others further out in South east England:  North and South Downs, Chilterns, Sussex and Kent coasts.  We normally use public transport to access the start and of walks as this makes it easy to organise and get to from any part of London.  It also enables us to do many linear walks rather than being restricted to circular walks.

Sometimes we stop at pubs for lunch, but you are welcome to bring your own sandwiches.

Many of our trips away are based around walks - walking weekends or longer to the Lake District, Scottish and Welsh mountains, Yorkshire Dales, Peak District and coastal and moorland areas.  We usually have several walking trips abroad to places such as the Dolomites and alps.  

Why not try us out?  Non-members can come on up to three walks (or other outdoor events) to try us out for FREE.

So check out our events calendar, choose a walk, cycle ride or other type of event and come along and find out what you've been missing.  Photos of various various walks, cycle rides and trips away

Pub Social Evening + Evening Walk for Current and New/Prospective Members on Thursday 3rd August

CLOG is holding our next pub social evening for current and new/prospective members on Thursday 3rd August, and this time it's in a bar with a difference - it's floating on the Thames! 

There will also be the option of a short walk beforehand for those who wish to work up a thirst. The pub venue is the Tattershall Castle, a floating pub and restaurant moored a few minutes walk away from Embankment tube station with great views along the Thames. 

 Meet from 7.00pm on board (we will aim to gather at the prow end if the weather is fine, otherwise in one of the bars below deck). To get there turn right out of the station facing the river and go under the railway bridge - the Tattershall Castle is the second boat on the left. 

To join the walk beforehand meet in Westminster tube station outside WH Smiths at 6.00pm. The walk will be approximately 3 miles long and will explore Westminster and its environs including Parliament square, St James' Park, Buckingham Palace, Green Park and Jermyn St ending up at the Tattershall Castle by 8:00pm. 

Please do bring friends / work colleagues who may be interested in CLOG and we look forward to seeing you on the walk or in the pub!

Upcoming Trips

We have usually have around 20 or more outdoor adventure trips away - walking, cycling, canoeing, kayaking, champing - each year, both in the UK and abroad.

CLOG trips are non-commercial and are run at cost or occasionally subsidised. This makes them incredibly cheap compared with holiday companies but you normally have to be a member to get a place on a trip.  NB Trip organisers are all (unpaid) volunteers and members of the group.

How to book on trips? Booking instructions are in the relevant trip e-mail sent to clog members. Non-members can apply to come on a trip by emailing the Trips Team trips@clog.org.uk but they would normally have to join CLOG to come on the trip.

Full details of these and other events are on our events calendar
