List of Clubs Affiliated to the BMC

Climbing, hill walking and mountaineering are the principle objectives of the clubs featured in the list. They are all based in and controlled by their own members. All club applications are submitted to the BMC National Council for approval. Nine areas form the democratic base of the BMC, and serve as local forums for discussion and debate about mountaineering issues. The clubs are listed under the relevant area, but usually accept members from other areas. There is a small number of national clubs and these are listed separately. The contact for each club listed here will normally be able to supply you with details of their club membership requirements, activities, meeting places, etc. The list was last updated on the date printed at the bottom of the following page.
