About Hillwalking

Whether you're already passionate about the outdoors or just simply curious, we offer something for everyone. Our activities include...

Day Walks: Hosted every Saturday during term time, featuring locations such as Winchester, the Isle of Wight, New Forest, Salisbury, South Downs and Bournemouth. Day walks are FREE to attend and all are welcome; the more the merrier! Only costs include your own personal train ticket and packed lunch. Details of each day walk are posted on our Facebook page and other social media, as well as our email mailing list.

Away Trips: SUHC host 6 weekend away trips per academic year, including locations such as Snowdonia, the Lake District, Pembrokeshire, Dartmoor, Peak District and other National Parks! Away Trips are usually priced at £50, which is all-inclusive of transport, food and accommodation. Access to away trips requires the initial purchase of a club membership (£20) which lasts the entire academic year.

Socials: Regular weekly social events, including activities such as: karaoke, games nights, cheese and wine evenings, club nights, BBQs, quizzes and bowling- just to name a few! Not to forget our annual Christmas and Easter formals! At SUHC, we are an inclusive club who take pride in offering something for everyone! Most socials are free to attend.

Some socials may require a charge to attend, such as our annual Christmas and Easter Formals. There will be a discount available to all paid club members.

Full academic year membership costs £20, allowing attendance of away trips and discounts on paid socials.
A half-academic year (one semester) membership is available (with the same benefits) at £10.
