Walking Advice

  • If you are new to walking and unsure of your fitness level, don't be over ambitious, try a short and easy walk first. If you have doubts about your ability with any walk, contact the leader
  • Wear suitable footwear. Trainers with a good grip can be OK in dry conditions but in wetter conditions walking boots are more practical
  • Consider using the OS Grid Reference or WhatThreeWords to find the start point in rural areas as these are more accurate than postcodes 
  • Check the walk details before you leave. Very few of our walks are cancelled due to weather or driving conditions but the decision is down to the leader. Cancelled walks will be published on this website and the Southampton Ramblers Facebook page. If you're unsure whether a walk is going ahead contact the leader
  • Dogs are welcome on our walks but please see the Dog Walking Code
