Walking Festival 2019


TfGM and the GM Moving team are back with the fifth Greater Manchester Walking Festival this May. Working our partner groups and organisations we are offering over 400 walks and walking opportunities across Greater Manchester.

All the walks are free to join, cater for all ages and abilities and are guided by experienced walk leaders. Our online search tool enables you to search for a walk by date, borough or level of difficulty


Inspiring Women of Manchester

We’re offering three themed walks this year, to commemorate the amazing females of Greater Manchester. In particular, we’re celebrating ‘Inspiring Women of Rochdale, Manchester, and Oldham’ on the 5th, 9th and 19th May. Search for Inspiring Women of Rochdale, Manchester or Oldham on Eventbrite to book.
