About us

Welcome to the LMC

With over 400 members, the LMC are able to provide a large and varied programme of mountain related activities- primarily hill walking, scrambling, climbing and mountaineering.

The club holds monthly socials at the Devereux pub in central London, with lectures from members and guest speakers. Recent guests include John Arran, Kenton Cool and Jerry Gore.

Members can also be found at the London climbing walls (The Castle, Westway, Mile End, The Reach and The Arch)

Our meets (trips away) program is very comprehensive- there's something on almost every weekend, in the UK or abroad. In addition to popular destinations such as the Peak District, the Lake District, North Wales and Portland/Swanage, we have recently had trips overseas and to less travelled destinations such as: Lundy, The Himalayas, The Dolomites, Costa Blanca, Malta and Fontainbleu. We also organise annual trips to The Alps and the SMC's CIC hut near Ben Nevis. There are also special meets such as: Navigation Course, First Aid Course, Climbing Tuition Meet, Bonfire night and Burns night.

To keep its members up to date, the LMC publishes a regular club magazine- "The London Mountaineer". Members also have access to the members only section of the club website, which includes a discussion board for members to communicate and exchange information.

The LMC also owns a hut (cottage), called Fronwydyr, located in the heart of Snowdonia National Park. It sleeps 16 people, and is available to members and their guests, at extremely reasonable rates.

The club is also affiliated with the British Mountaineering Council. This means that members have access to BMC information and services. Members are also automatically covered by BMC personal liability insurance.

Members also receive discounts on purchases at selected stores, including a 15% discount at all Cotswolds outlets.
