Guidance & Additional Information

Please support the AAC(UK) by offering to lead a day walk in your area: e-mail the relevant coordinator to discuss your ideas.

This walking programme provides an opportunity for members to meet one another and keep their walking fitness while not in the Alps.

Most of the walks in the South of England are organised to start at a railway station with a train connection to a central London mainline station. Walk start times are usually based around the published railway timetables. Be aware that these times can change at short notice due to essential railway maintenance work, so please check before you set out.

If severe weather warnings are given, contact the designated walk leader or the AAC(UK) Office beforehand.

Most of the Southern walks, have a pub stop for lunch, followed by the second stage of the walk in the afternoon. Please do not consume your own food or drink at the pubs. Pubs often prefer you to remove your boots, or put plastic bags over them.

Do you need to book for a Day Walk? – Yes, please book by emailing the leader. We made booking compulsory during the Covid-19 pandemic, in order to limit numbers, and have decided to continue with this on a permanent basis, so that leaders know who to expect and can contact participants about any last-minute changes or cancellation, e.g. as a result of railway engineering works or adverse weather conditions.

The current Ordnance Survey Maps are indicated by their number, prefaced by: LR (Land Ranger) for 1:50,000 maps, and E (Explorer) or OL (Outdoor Leisure) for 1:25,000 maps.

Please log in to My.Britannia for Co-ordinator contact details.

Disclaimer


Climbing, hill and country walking, hiking, scrambling, mountain biking, mountaineering, klettersteig and snow sports (and any other similar activities) (the “Activities”) organised by Austrian Alpine Club (UK) (“AAC(UK)”) are physically challenging and carry risks that AAC(UK) cannot entirely eliminate. These include the risk of personal injury or death. In taking part in the Activities you acknowledge and accept these risks, being responsible for your own actions, involvement, health condition and safety. All event participants must follow any safety warnings or instructions displayed or given to them by a leader or organiser (and ask a leader or organiser if anything is unclear). In the absence of any breach of duty by AAC(UK), participation in the Activities is entirely at participants’ own risk.
