Northern Towns

For the latest Information on our group including photographs and programme of events, select here


The aim of the group is to enjoy making new friends whilst participating in interesting visits to northern towns, learning more about their history, architecture, industry or other points of interest. 

From March to October group members have already organised visits to such towns as Hawes, Thirsk, Bury, Otley, York, Ripon, Eyam, Manchester and many more. We use personal expertise or  local guides. In January and February we enjoy indoor presentations, often from our own members and in November we meet for a pre Christmas lunch.

Our visits benefit from the U3A tour guide system that has helped everyone to hear the various guides and has proved particularly beneficial to those who no longer hear as well as they once did!

Do join us. We’re sure you’ll have fun!


Jean Smith (coordinator); Mike Roberts (treasurer); John Hancock (tour guide system) and Bonnie Fourie (transport).
