The Aberystwyth Group of the Ramblers operates in the northern half of Ceredigion in Mid Wales. It is part of the nationwide Ramblers organisation which represents the interests of walkers throughout Great Britain.

Aberystwyth was the only neighbourhood in Wales on a shortlist of 10 nominations for Britain's Best Walking Neighbourhood. The eventual winner was Falkirk in Scotland with Aberystwyth coming a creditable 4th.

The activities and interests of the Aberystwyth Group are as follows:

Walks Programme

Following the relaxation of Government guidelines we are now able to offer a Summer & Winter Walks Programme. In order to keep everyone safe walkers will have to book in with the appropriate walk leader for more information about the walk including details of the start venue and parking. Numbers are also limited with the actual number permitted related to factors such as the number of stiles where people might congragate, limited parking, difficult terrain etc. Social distancing will apply at all times.

The Walk Programme may be found by clicking on this link. 

(Very occasionally walks on the link above have had to be changed & some additional walks have been added or some cancelled, so check the 'Our Group Walks ' green column on the right hand side of the Aberystwyth Ramblers home page)

Non-members (including visitors to the area) are welcome to come along for up to three walks before they are expected to join the Ramblers.

On all walks we will encounter sheep therefore the Group requests walkers not to bring their dogs. An exception would be made for Registered Assistance Dogs, in which case the Walk Leader should be contacted to ensure the walk is suitable (access over stiles etc).

Please see our page on Walks Information and Safety if you would like to join us on a walk.
