Welcome to the Open Air Club!

We are the University of Liverpool's Walking Club, touring the hills and pubs of England, Wales, and Scotland in search of views, fresh air, sheep and alcoholic refreshment.

We run walks for all abilities most weekends during term time, including several weekends away, and longer trips in the Christmas holiday and summer term. We also like to tour Liverpool a lot, finding various drinking establishments and sources of entertainment on Tuesday evenings for our socials!
