Walks and visits

Walking website

Regular walks and tours are organised from The Centre for Heritage and Family History. These link with the quarterly theme of the Thursday afternoon talks.

Some of the society's local branches arrange walks and visits too, usually in the spring and summer months.

Walks and visits can bring to life aspects of an area's social history. They can also introduce researchers to new ideas, and to opportunities to find and engage with resources that will help them to unlock their family’s past.

For walks and tours, you must buy a modestly priced ticket in advance.

Walks and tours are proving to be very popular events. Places are limited and generally sell out very quickly.

To secure your place, early booking is strongly recommended.

Note: The tour on 23rd June sold out almost immediately. Further tours are planned for Saturday, 20th July and Sunday, 27th October. Look out for details.

The society aims always to arrange talks and visits that are accessible for everyone, but some destinations and venues may not be suitable for those with special access needs.
