Hey there! Would you like to see picturesque and famous places, escape from the London crowds, and meet a whole variety of new people from outside your course, and even your country? Or do you like an adrenaline rush and the challenge of climbing up that hill or mountain? If yes, UCL Hiking Club is for you! It's never too late to join us - new members welcome all year round.

We organise walks and hikes to suit all levels - from complete beginners to seasoned ramblers. Hikes in and around the South East take place every weekend, while weekend trips further away are planned throughout the year. Past destinations for residential trips include Dartmoor, Skye, Snowdonia, Peak District, Lake District, Brecon Beacons, Romania, and Poland.

All information about upcoming walks and residential trips goes out through our private Members Facebook group. Once you have bought either our Free/Remote or Full membership, please request to follow our Members Only Facebook Group.

More details about how our hikes works (sign ups, meeting points, etc.) can be found in our FAQ document, listed on our website. However, if you still have any questions please just contact the club!  

We also post regular updates on our Public Facebook Page and Instagram.
