Coach trips are organised throughout the year to galleries, museums, country houses and other places of interest. Members have travelled to the Dulwich Picture Gallery, Strawberry Hill House, Barrington Court, and enjoyed a back-stage tour at the Royal Opera House. London and Oxford are regular destinations.

Non-members are always welcome on coach trips at an extra cost of £2 per person. Coach trips start from, and return to, the Bradford on Avon Station Car Park with no pick-ups along the way.

We always welcome suggestions for future outings.
