The Wayfarers' Club - Founded 1906

Affiliated to The British Mountaineering Council

"Rule 1. NAME AND OBJECTS. The Club shall be called the The Wayfarers' Club and its objects shall be to encourage the pursuits of mountaineering, walking, ski-running and cave exploration, to bring together men who are interested in these pursuits and to do whatever shall be deemed by the Committee from time to time to be conducive to the attainment of the foregoing objects."

These have been the objects of the Club since it was founded in 1906 in Liverpool, and continue to be so today. The Wayfarers' Club is now a national club, though still with strong base of members from Merseyside and the Northwest. We are one of the few single sex mountaineering clubs and are men only, however, women guests are frequent and welcome guests at our club hut in the Lake District. The vast majority of our meets are mixed.

To pursue the Clubs' objects, the Wayfarers have regular organised meets around the UK, often in our own hut and those of our kindred clubs. Informal parties are frequently in action at home and abroad. The Wayfarers also have a deserved reputation for their social activities. These include the Annual dinner and BBQ; our catered meets have become something of a speciality.

In the century of the existence of the Club, Wayfarers have left footprints in every continent and countless countries. In recent years, members' activities have ranged from homely rambles up Langdale to the ascent of Everest.
