The Alpine Club, the world’s first mountaineering club, was founded in 1857.  For over 150 years, members have been at the leading edge of worldwide mountaineering development and exploration. 

With membership, experienced and aspiring alpinists benefit from a varied meets programme, regional lectures with notable guest speakers, reduced rates at many alpine huts, opportunity to apply for grants to support expeditions, significant discounts at many UK retailers, extensive networking contacts, access to the AC Library and maps - and more!

Alpine Club Library Closure

Further to our earlier post, The Alpine Club Library remains without a full-time Librarian and London has now been placed under Tier 3 COVID restrictions.

Under these circumstances, we feel we have no alternative but to close the Library entirely until at least mid-January. We deeply regret having to do this.We will review the position again after 12 January 2021. Please refer to our website and look out for posts on Alpinet after that date.


Barbara Grigor-Taylor, Honorary Librarian

Philip Meredith, Chair of the Council of Trustees
