Leeds Met Walking Club offers you much more than the usual university club. One of the largest of its kind, it's renowned for it's friendly mix of both UK and International students.
We meet for great socials, weekend trips and day walks, visiting parts of the country you may never have seen. We welcome walkers of all abilities, so everyone can get involved! Sign-up to the Walking Club e-mail list to receive regular updates on club activities by e-mailing: firstname.lastname@example.org
We organise around 8 weekend trips a year which are the perfect antidote to university stress. We take you to beautiful and remote places such as the Lake District, Snowdonia (Wales) and Ben Nevis (Scotland). The cost of around £40 covers yours accommodation as well as all food and transportation. We usually meet at Headingley campus at 6pm Friday, returning between 7-10pm Sunday (depending on the destination), and finishing the weekend with a post-trip curry. The weekend trips include a number of different walks for various abilities. We try to cater for everyone and gear the level of the walk to the members on the trips. Nobody will be forced to scale mountains, but if you're up for a challenge, we'll try to provide it!
Our regular Day Walks allow you to explore the beautiful countryside we have in our region. These walks tend to be of a fairly easy/medium level, catering for all abilities. They tend to be leasurely, and provide a great opportunity to meet other club members and enjoy the local countryside.
Club members also meet up for regular social events and activities, from bowling, to skiing to pub-crawls. These are often organised at the last minute, so keep an eye on the website, Facebook and check your e-mails regularly for all the latest events.
Everyone is welcome to our regular Club Social (whether a member, or just curious!) – every Tuesday night from 8pm in The Civic Quarter Met Bar..
