WELCOME TO THE WEBSITE OF THE UPPER NORWOOD ATHENAEUM

We are a Historical Society who have been established since 1875. We arrange day visits to places of historical or architectural interest, mainly in southern England, by coach. Occasionally arrangements are made to go further afield on 3 or 4 day outings - these are usually on a biennial basis and mean that we can explore places outside the day trip radius.

The U.N.A. as it is more usually known is run by its members, for its members and exists to visit places of antiquarian or historical interest and to promote friendship amongst those interested in these subjects. We hope you enjoy your visit to our website and that you will consider joining us on our outings to various places of interest and adventure.
