What we do
Learn what the Ramblers do, our goals and our achievements.
Opening the way
The Ramblers opens the way for everyone to enjoy the simple pleasures of walking. And we step up to protect the places we all love to wander.
We're the only charity dedicated to removing barriers so everyone can enjoy walking in green spaces, and to improving Britain’s most popular and least-known walking places. We’re committed to campaigning to keep our countryside open to all and to fighting for the things that matter most to walkers. We lead the way, and the walks, for a vibrant community united by the joys of walking, helping everyone get more out of their walks.
We are the Ramblers: Boosting Britain’s wellbeing one step at a time.
