As part of this year’s Virtual Festival of Geology, the GA will run 3 Urban walks in the London area and we’d love you to join us. All 3 walks begin at 11am and will be half-day trips on Sunday 7th November. Tickets cost £5 per person and booking is essential so hurry to book your places!
If you can’t join us on these walks, the same link will take you to Walks around the Country that are being organised by our Local Groups and Affiliated Societies, or if you can’t join in, in person then there are plenty of walks you can enjoy virtually on the Festival website.
