From March to October each year the Society runs a programme of visits. The sites are chosen for architectural merit, historical association or literary connection. Some visits are to private houses that are rarely open to the public, others are to newly built houses in the Georgian style. Many trips include guided tours or lectures. Members may choose to travel by coach or make their own private arrangements. Coach pickup points are at Hessle, Hull, Cottingham and Beverley. Typically the cost of a trip is around £12 for the coach with a further £10 for entry fees.
