Walking and Countryside Events

Family walkersMillions of us enjoy recreational walking in the countryside and in our towns and cities. Personal motivation may be for exercise and fitness, relaxation and wellbeing, part of a healthy lifestyle plan, or just a plain love of the outdoors and nature. Most of this walking is done either alone or as part of a family group. Recreational walking also has another aspect and that is social. Many of us enjoy walking with friends or with a walking group such as the Ramblers and derive much pleasure from the sociability of such a group. There are also organisations such as walk4health which arrange group walks aimed mainly at getting more people out walking and the social aspect to this provides encouragement.

Another trend in recent years has been the growth of walking festivals which provide an opportunity to meet and walk with new people with a common interest and perhaps start up new friendships. These are often organised by partnerships of local tourism authorities and walking groups. You can find a list of many of these on our Walking Festivals listing page.

Here we list walking and countryside events that may be one-off affairs or programmes of regular led walks offered by all sorts of organisations. Some are free, others charge a fee and some are challenge or charity events.

Boots and Beer Weekenders

Boots and Beer WeekendersIf you love group walking, meeting new like-minded people and enjoy good beer and a good pub then a Boots and Beer Weekender might be just the ticket. These events take place in beautiful locations in northern England and are organised by Mark Reid, a walking guidebook author and qualified mountain leader with plenty of experience.

These are sociable fun weekends which include a choice of two walks with a choice of distance on Saturday and Sunday. The weekends begin on Friday evening with an 'icebreaker' social event at a classic country pub where you can get to know your fellow walkers.
