Walk magazine winter 2023
Walk is the Ramblers’ quarterly magazine, with more readers than any other UK walking mag
Whether it’s frosty, blustery or relentlessly rainy, the latest edition of walk invites you to ‘chill out’. Discover why venturing outdoors in the coldest, wettest months is so beneficial for physical and mental health, and learn how to stay safe with expert advice on winter walking safety.
Our gear reviewers bring you comfort and joy this season with their recommendations of walking footwear for every type of foot – wide, long, painful, chilly and more. Helpful if you’re looking for a gift for a keen walker (or wanting to drop some hints for yourself!)
