• Churches - Looking at London Churches


    The group explores sacred places in and around London.  We explore the architecture, iconography, history and development of all types of places of worship in the London Area.  We have tended to focus on the City but are happy to visit anywhere in the greater London area.  Most outings take a day and include a visit to two places of worship and lunch, if required.  We take it in turn to arrange and lead visits but also have access to the services of an experienced City Guide.

  • Gallery Group 1


    The group explores the work of significant artists, movements and genres.  On the first Wednesday an introductory talk is given and on the second an all day visit is made to a gallery, museum or house, usually in the London area.  Occasionally trips may be made further afield or even abroad.  No special expertise is required other than a willingness to contribute and attend regularly. Open to other U3A’s.

  • Gallery Group 2


    Meetings are held in a house in Otford, or a gallery in London or elsewhere.  At house meetings we discuss what we have seen and look at our postcard reminders, and watch relevant videos or DVDs, as well as planning future visits.  Members are asked to collect newspaper reviews and news items on forthcoming exhibitions so that they are able to contribute to discussions.  Our London visits meet up at approximately 11 am.

  • Local Studies & Visits


    Members of the group take it in turns, in pairs, to select a local village or town of interest.  They make a presentation to the others on the points of interest;  historical, architectural and the like, at a first meeting, and then lead the group on a visit to that location for the  second meeting the following month.
