Group name: Leicester & District
This group is a part of Leicestershire & Rutland Area.
Our activities include:
Short and easy walks
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.
Leicester Group organises a variety of walks: 5 - 6.5 mile walks every Tuesday and Thursday mornings (with optional pub lunch) and on the last Saturday each month, a 10 mile walk on occasional Thursday mornings, 2.5 - 4 mile leisurely usually stile-free strolls on some Thursday mornings, 4-5 mile walks every Tuesday evening May - Aug, 10-13 mile all day walks every Sunday except the third Sunday in the month,12 - 21 mile walks every Saturday and a 7-9 mile all-day walk on the fist Sunday in the month. On the third Sunday in each month we hire a coach and go further afield to attractive areas of the country. On these we offer three guided walks of about 8.5 miles, 10 miles and 12 miles. On some coach rambles we also offer a leisurely stroll of about 6 miles. If you wish you can join us on the coach and just do your own thing when you get to the venue. At the end of the day we have an (optional) meal in a pub before returning home.
Dogs are not permitted on any of our walks. Children accompanied by a parent or guardian are welcome. All walks have morning and afternoon coffee breaks. Most full day walks usually have a lunch stop at a pub, and are not really suitable for young children, but accompanied older children are welcome. All walks are open to the public, though you would be expected to join the Ramblers after taking part in three. If you are new to the Ramblers, you will be welcomed on any of our walks; the coach rambles in particular are a good day out with a choice of walks, a lunch stop and an evening meal before we return home, and provide an excellent introduction to the camaraderie of our Group. For most walks you can just turn up, but you would need to book a place on the coach for coach rambles. Please do not hesitate to get in touch on 0116 2887457 for full information on any of our walks, or if you have any queries.
