Enjoy walking in Hampshire and the surrounding area then why not give us a try?

We offer friendly company on our guided walks, of which there are at least 5 every week, in Hampshire, Wiltshire, Dorset, Sussex and the Isle of Wight. These range in length from  walks of a few miles, ideal for those new to or returning to walking, to all-day walks for the more experienced walker as well as coach trips and social events. There is something for everyone so why not come along and meet us, make new friends and discover how walking boosts your health and above all enjoy yourself. You’re very welcome to try our walks  : no need to book, just turn up and make yourself known to the leader.
