Gay Outdoor Club
The activity club for gay men and women and their friends


Welcome to the GOC Surrey Homepage:

GOC Surrey had its 1st walk on 29th January 1995 and has walked on the 4th Sunday of each month since. 
We usually have over thirty men and women turn up, so you are sure to find someone to share the beautiful Surrey views with and plenty of interesting conversation. If you rely on public transport then a brief message posted on the event page normally ensures that you have a lift from a convenient train station.  Our walks are predominantly circular between 8 – 12 miles long. Lunch is a packed lunch and we always end the walk with a hot drink and home baked cake brought in by some members (if Mrs Beeton were alive, she could judge the competitive cake makers). 
We are a friendly group of people and always welcome new members. Coming along to your first event can be a daunting prospect but don’t let that stop you as many of us attended on our own and love to mix with whoever turns up. GOC has a try before you buy approach where you attend 3 events before you need to join up to receive event details. To get details of any walks you would like to try please contact Pat Horgan.
Most importantly of all; the Surrey group is your group and suggestions on events you’d like to see or thoughts of how the group can progress are always welcome.
The Coordinator for GOC Surrey is Pat Horgan and he can be contacted here

Linear Walk from Milford to Godalming turned circular!

28 Mar 2017 | Surrey Group

On Sunday SW Trains decided to cancel our Godalming to Milford train! As a result our walk leader, Matthew, and some people coming from London could only get as far as Guilford. With the aid of a taxi everyone arrived at Godalming station and we invoked a cunning plan B and set out on a circular route from Godalming....

Deepdene Trail

2 Mar 2017 | Surrey Group

Lead by Pat, 33 men and women explored the newly opened Deepdene trail. There were many new paths some of which enabled access to Betchworth castle ruins, these paths are not even on the OS maps! Can you identify the flag in one of the photos?

The weather was kind to us with some sun and just afew spots of rain at the end of the walk....

Richmond Park

22 Jan 2017 | Surrey Group

We started slighter later than planned as people were stuck in traffic and the car park filled up much earlier than normal and the queue was all the way around the car park, but as Bill had pre walked the route he took a slightly different route through the biggest enclosed space in London and also the largest of Londons 8 Royal Parks....

Colley Hill and North Downs Views

5 Jan 2017 | Surrey Group

The combination of the wet forecast and the auspicious date did not produce a capacity crowd on the walk today – an all-time record low of 6! Despite the awful weather forecast we had a mostly dry walk. Stunning views were in short supply because the North Downs were shrouded in low cloud which made for some very interesting misty effects....
