Group name: Sevenoaks
This group is a part of Kent Area.
Our groups help local people enjoy walking and protect the places we all love to walk. Most groups organise regular walks led by local experts – a great way to get outside, make new friends and discover how walking boosts your health and happiness. You’re very welcome to try walking with us, or to get involved in looking after paths and green spaces and opening up new places to explore.

Walk with Sevenoaks Ramblers
Everyone is welcome to join us on our organised walks. Many members of other Ramblers groups walk with us, and non-members also come along - we hope that after 2 or 3 walks you'll want to join!
Walks are planned and led by our members and details can be found in our online programme. We enjoy sharing our beautiful countryside, our favourite lunch spots and our very best walks with everyone who can come.
Shorter walks are usually more local to Sevenoaks, longer ones may range further away. There are two long lines of hills near here, the North Downs and the Greensand Ridge. These offer woodland walking and very different flowers, as well as some fine, far-reaching views as a reward for climbing the hillside.
Walks vary in length and difficulty. In this area just about every walk will have a number of stiles. Everyone should be capable of completing the planned walk and must be suitably clothed and shod. Children and dogs are welcome on many of the walks (please check the programme) but remain the responsibility of their "owners".
If you are new to walking you'll be very welcome to join us . There's lots of good advice available on the Ramblers main pages.
We meet up for monthly pub nights, as well as occasionally finishing walks at members homes to share tea or lunch in the garden. These events are announced only in our printed programme. Join our group and you'll automatically hear about these events (members of other groups are also welcome to subscribe to our printed programme).

We walk mainly on Sundays and Wednesdays. Occasionally there are specials, such as a Saturday early morning walk, with breakfast at a local cafe.
On Sundays we usually have a shorter walk, around 5 or 6 miles, which is finished by lunchtime, and a longer walk with a lunch stop. Some of the longer walks are figure-of-8, so we return to the start at lunchtime and set off again from the same place. This gives you the option of a short walk in the morning or the afternoon, or a longer, all-day walk. Lunch arrangements are in the programme.
On Wednesdays the walks may be long or short, so check the programme to see what's available.
Some walks are linear, using train or cars to link up. Please phone the leader for details when asked to do so in the programme.
Have a look at our programme and find a walk that might suit you. Please feel free to contact the leader if you'd like to know more. We'd love to meet you!
Varied scenery on the paths around Sevenoaks
Many of our members like to go on walking holidays organised by Ramblers and other groups. We also go away together two or three times a year on holidays organised by members of our own group. There's a variety of accommodation, ranging from hostels to 4* hotels.
Recent trips have been to Shropshire and Samos, Derbyshire, Wales, the Auvergne and north Devon.
