Have you ever wondered what a walking festival is?
They are held all over the country and give a fantastic opportunity for people to explore new places in the area.
They all differ slightly, but usually consist of a programme of guided walks over a number of days. There are events for all fitness levels, ranging from one hour strolls to half and full day walks.
The website contains the booking process, and you just turn up on the day! You’ll need to wear appropriate clothing and the programme will advise you what that is for each walk. You may also need to bring your own food and drink.
But other than that, you don’t need anything else! The experienced walk leaders will explain everything and you can enjoy the day in the company of fellow walkers.
Our own festival in Dursley is in October and is one of the biggest in the area. All our walks are free, but you do need to book in advance.
