Knole U3A is part of the University of the Third Age, the organisation that is synonymous with activities for retired and semi-retired folk who’ve been through two ages and are keen to embrace the third – that of further education, creative and leisure activities and FUN.
No qualifications are needed, just enthusiasm, curiosity and a willingness to contribute. U3As are run by the members for the members. Everyone does their bit.

Members' resource area
Knole has grown rapidly since its inception in 2009 and now has around 450 members. It boasts over 70 study groups and every encouragement will be given to help you set up your own group. That’s how we work. That’s how we stay vibrant and young at heart!
As well as group activities we hold monthly meetings where we have the opportunity to listen to outside speakers, catch up with chums and enjoy a cup of tea and home made cake.
We also have a committee devoted to organising ad hoc coach trips to such places as Bletchely Park, The Ashmolean at Oxford, The British Museum, and these are often preceded by half day seminars.
