In the summer we try and arrange visits to places of local hisotoric interest, in previous years we have had guided tours around houses that are not normally open to the public. We have also had guided tours of some of local museums. The 2019 visits were a guided tour of Dorchester and a guided tour of Waterperry House. In June 2022 a small group had a guided tour of Wallingford and a visit to the Wallingford museum.
