The Society is well positioned near the south coast of England to explore the continent and visits have been made to mineral museums and field trips organised.

The visits over the years have become longer and often take the form of GEOTOURISM, i.e. time is spent both on general tourist activities as well as mineral related activities.

In most recent years we have made an annual visit to a mineral show in Stella Plage in Northern France”

Club members have also often attended the big international mineral shows at St Marie Aux Mines in Alsace and in Munich.
