Ramblers Wellbeing Walks: Getting started 

Join a health walk designed for you 

Welcome to England’s largest network of health walk groups. We’ve already helped thousands of people get more active, so whether you want to improve your wellness or used to enjoy walking but have lost your fitness, you’re in the right place. The Ramblers Wellbeing Walks make it easier to start walking and stay active than going it alone. And there’ll be plenty within easy reach of where you live.  

Walking has been a real confidence booster. The distance doesn’t matter as much as getting outside and connecting with nature. The benefits are huge, it just alters your whole mindset. Once you get outside, you feel so much better. Louise, Ramblers Wellbeing Walk leader

We make getting active easier, for everyone  

  • Fitness level doesn’t matter: walks are over easy terrain and at a steady pace to suit everyone. 

  • Mobility limitations aren’t an issue: routes are open to all (Please contact walk organiser to check if the route is wheelchair accessible).

  • No special equipment is needed  

  • Wellbeing walks are achievable: walks are short: starting at 10 mins and never longer than 90 minutes. 

  • Making walking a healthy habit is easier: there’s at least one planned walk a week, starting at the same time and place every week. 

  • Finding a Ramblers Wellbeing Walk is simple: planned walks feature on our website. 

  • Joining a group walk is convenient: All walks are local, and accessible on foot or by public transport. 

Find your local Ramblers Wellbeing Walk 

All our short group walks are led by an experienced Ramblers Wellbeing Walks leader along tried-and-tested, easy to reach routes. Because you’ll be walking with others, you’ll feel safe, be supported, and have fun along the way. And everyone stays together, so you don’t need to worry about being left behind. We’re a friendly bunch too and you’ll get the warmest of welcomes.

 “Our Ramblers Wellbeing Walks always have the social bit at the end – it’s just as important as the physical exercise and often one of the main reasons people come on our walks.” Karen, Ramblers Wellbeing Walk leader
