About the Walking Festival
Welcome to our 2020 Festival of Walking. In the largest Festival yet, we offer you Farnham, its villages and the beautiful Surrey and Hampshire countryside that surrounds us. Set across the three weeks from 16 May to 7 June, we have walks for all – whatever your age, fitness or walking ability. We offer a range from half-mile strolls around town to 14-mile hikes through the countryside and everything in between. All walks during this festival are led by experts in their field and most are free of charge to join. What do you fancy? A historical walk around Farnham? Or Wrecclesham? Or Badshot Lea? A kid's Treasure Trail? A thirty-four-mile pilgrimage over three days? Trees, bats, breweries or pillboxes? They're all here.
The Festival is organised by a group of volunteers. Each guided walk is led by a leader who is an expert in their field. This year we have expanded the festival to over 70 walks throughout a three-week period. Most walks are free to join but booking is essential where required.
This website has been created by Walking Festival volunteers so you can take part in the Walking Festival and discover the beautiful Surrey and Hampshire walks and countryside before and after the main event.
