Annual coach trip 2020
The annual GLHS coach trip will be held on Saturday, April 25th. when we will travel to London for a visit to The Charterhouse located between Barbican and Smithfield Market. Visits to the museum, chapel and shop on site are free, but highly recommended are the tours led by professional guides at £12pp (optional). A former Carthusian monastery founded in 1348, The Charterhouse has a long and fascinating history.

Within easy walking distance is the London Museum, St. Paul’s Cathedral, a shopping mall and a host of eating/drinking establishments.

If you are interested in joining us and filling up the coach, we will be taking deposits of £5pp at our February meeting (Thursday, February 13th). Final costs will be calculated when numbers are confirmed, although we must be aware that coach trips to London are now slightly more expensive due to the emissions charge introduced last year.
