Membership of British Exploring Society is attained by taking part in one of our Expedition programmes. Our community of explorers, which has been growing since we led our first Expedition in 1932, now has over 8000 members and for most, that first wilderness adventure with us was life-defining, and will continue to influence the person they are today.
Together our community of explorers works hard to make sure that the expedition experience we provide is accessible to an ever more diverse range of young people - many of whom would not be able to participate without significant financial support. Our Members are already champions of this drive for accessibility and have made it clear that they want to support future members on their expeditionary journey, and throughout life.
Following changes to our governing documents in 2017, we have made the decision to remove membership fees and to give access to our Members Newsletter and to our discounts at outdoor clothing suppliers to all Members without charge.
