The purpose of the Group is to visit local places of interest (by public transport or self drive) as well as coach tours. This group will merge the Questers and Garden Visit groups together as well as extending to provide Coach trips (possibly 3 to 4 a year).  This group is open to all members of the Balsall Common U3A, all activities will be advertised to the whole membership

If you have any suggestions for visits, either local or afar please email the Coordinator.

Out and About 2018

There will not be any Out & About Events in December 2017 or January 2018.


I hope to arrange visits to places of interest from February 2018 onwards.

Hopefully I will arrange visits and tours amongst others to the following:

Middleton Hall - Near Tamworth -The hall plays host to over 950 years of history, and the eighteenth-century walled garden has recently been developed.

Guys Cliffe House Near Warwick

Blue Badge Guided Tour of the Jewellery Quarter in Birmingham, including two cemeteries  where many of the notaries of Birmingham are buried.

Town Hall - Birmingham
