YHA Street hostel

Street, Somerset


Bank Holiday weekend at YHA Street, a Swiss-chalet style hostel near Glastonbury. Climb the Tor, walk in the Mendip Hills and the Somerset Levels. Also visiting the seaside at Weston-super-Mare might be possible, and the Quantock Hills are not far away.

If you're using a Sat Nav please enter the location as 'Street', the road name as 'Cockrod' and select 'Marshall Elms Cross Road', don't use the hostel postcode. (grid ref ST480345).

New Zealand Zoom Slideshow

Join us on Zoom from 8.30pm. We’ll be showing an online slideshow featuring some of our travels in New Zealand, including the trip Alison &ersand; Dave did in 2004/2005, and Jim &ersand; Tom’s trip in 2007. And if anyone else who has been there has some photos, you’re welcome to share them too. Expect mountains, lakes, geysers, whales, penguins and the odd leap of faith.

Note: Unless otherwise stated, Wednesday events start at 8.30pm at the YMCA in Victoria Road, Chelmsford
