The Trips Committee is developing a varied programme of trips, outings, visits and social events. A list of all outings is shown below. Firm bookings are being taken for some while others are still in the planning stage. If you are logged in you can see more information and  contact the Organiser by simply clicking on the item that interests you. 

Payment Arrangements

Payments for Trips and Outings must be made:

  • by cheque payable to St Albans U3A with the event name on the back or
  • by bank transfer to the St Albans U3A account (details available from the Outing Organiser) with the event name as a reference 


If you put your names(s) down for any of these events, this will be taken as a firm booking. If you cancel and your ticket(s) cannot be resold, you will be responsible for all payments. If the event does not take place you will not be charged.

Dealing with "free places"

Some destinations offer free places to groups. Where offered, they will not be taken up by any individual but be used to reduce the cost to members.

Trips Disclaimer

Please note that each member is personally responsible for deciding if they are fit enough to undertake any activity or trip. Please contact the trip organiser if you want further information about any particular trip to enable you to decide.
