Walking Festival 2018


We are back with the fourth Walking Festival this May and our partner groups and organisations have really outdone themselves with over 350 walks submitted!

These routes are dotted around all ten districts of Greater Manchester, are completely free to join and will be guided by experienced walk leaders.

All ages and abilities are catered for and with the ability to filter our online calendar by level of difficulty and district, you’re sure to find a walk to suit you.

So go on, pick a walk and save the date!

Tips and hints to help you get the most out of the Walking Festival.

Go places

Go to places you never thought possible

For those who are less mobile or living with a disability, getting around under your own steam can be a challenge.
