Welcome

COVID-19

Following BMC guidance and government rules, we are arranging walking socials near London and day trips further afield, on a rolling basis. Check the Meet Us tab regularly for updates.

Welcome to the Marylebone Mountaineering Club, one of London’s friendliest clubs. With fewer than 100 members, you can get to know people over a fairly short time.

We welcome new members of all levels of experience.

Interested? Contact us via membership@themmc.org.uk and tell us what you want to do outdoors.

Thanks for looking,

Hiking

Through the course of a year we go mountain and hill walking in summer and winter conditions and coastal walking in the summer. There are no official walk leaders but the more experienced members will often suggest a route; bring your own maps along and get involved in the planning. […]

Mountaineering

Mountaineering can range from walking and scrambling un-roped on higher peaks where the route may not follow a distinct, wide path to technical snow and rock routes in the Alps. An example of scrambling in the UK would be the Crib Goch ridge on Snowdon.

Peaks 2019

Peaking a little too late Great Expectations Having endured a damp week in not-so-sunny southern England we were pleased to see a brighter forecast for the peaks (on Saturday at least). The merry band of climbers and walkers assembled at the rather luxurious Ollerbrook barn on Friday night were therefore […]

Lundy 2019

Lundy Calling A sense of unease shakes me from a vague dream into the present. I look at my phone, it’s 2:58 am. Someone’s moving downstairs. Lights are being switched on. There must be a reason for this nonsensical start to Saturday…then, like tea brewing, the plan for the day […]

The Gower Peninsula

Surfing, climbing, walking, swimming, white sandy beaches, great pubs; welcome to the Gower! The weekend kicked off with all the climbers heading to the crags at Trial Wall near Rhossili Beach.
