AGM Saturday 14th November 2020 at 4pm.
This year we have a surprise in store. Intrigued? Have a look at the "For your Diary" Page.
In these trying times we are reestablishing a limited walk programme in line with Ramblers guidance. If you are interested please keep looking at our walk programme on this website and if you would like emails notifying you of significant events we would urge you to sign up to our mailing list. See the Mailing List Tab.
Group walks restarted in early August after a CoViD shutdown. There is now a selection of varying lengths on different days of the week - see the panel bottom right on this page. The number of walkers on each walk is limited and the limit is shown on each walk’s detailed listing. You must book if you wish to attend. Please also note the guidance on walking safely during the CoViD pandemic - the continuation of group walks depends on everyone following the guidance. See the Group News page for further details.
What are we normally about?
Here in Kent we belong to the Kent Area of the Ramblers and they have a website that shows the activities of all the rambling groups in Kent affiliated to Ramblers. If you are interested in what else goes on in Kent or want details of other Kent groups do take look at the Kent Area website and specifically their news page.
All this looking at websites is all well and good but we are about getting you out walking with Bromley Ramblers. It's good fun, it's exercise and it's supposed to be good for us. If you have any interest at all why not come along to an easier, shorter (3-5 mile) walk and introduce yourself. We will do our best to make you welcome. Choose a dry day and all you really need is a pair of stout, comfortable boots, shoes or even trainers that you don't mind getting a bit muddy. If you click on the Walk Programme link on the right you will see our upcoming walks. Click on the Title for detailed information. Click on the New Ramblers link for more details of what to expect. We promise there will be lots of people on each walk, not just a few athletic women or potbellied men with beards and sandals!
The network of footpaths and bridleways that we walk developed over centuries linking hamlets, farms and fields to markets, churches and of course pubs! If we didn't walk them they would eventually disappear and The Ramblers campaigns to keep them open for us to enjoy. You get a completely different view of the countryside to the one get from inside a car. We have well over 500 members and you will see that we walk all over South East England, although primarily in Kent and Sussex and Surrey.
If you don't have access to a car or don't want to drive every time, decide on a walk, email our enquiries and we will endeavor to put you in touch with the walk leader who may know someone who is willing to give you a lift. The best way though is to get yourself to a walk, introduce yourself to the leader and he/she will ask around if there is anyone who lives near you who might be willing to car share.
We also organise some social events throughout the year and arrange rambling holidays in the UK and abroad usually in conjunction with specialist travel companies.

Bromley Ramblers is a member of The Walking Partnership. This partnership, supported by Ramblers Walking Holidays, provides direct financial contributions to local walking groups to help with organising group walks, encouraging people to get out walking, helping to clear and improve footpaths, providing equipment to help walkers etc. Over the past 65 years, Ramblers Walking Holidays has given many millions of pounds to assist walking charities and conservation projects in Britain and the countries they visit on their worldwide holidays. Now our group can benefit directly.
Ramblers Walking Holidays operate group walking holidays in the UK and all around the world. Each holiday is accompanied by a qualified walks leader, so you can leave all the organising to them and just enjoy meeting likeminded people and of course, some fantastic walking. Holidays are graded in terms of difficulty, and there is a full range from sightseeing right up to hut-to-hut mountain treks. Take a look at their website on ramblersholidays.co.uk or give them a call on 01707 386804 for more details or to order a brochure.
Remember when you book, please quote ‘Bromley Ramblers’ and we will then receive a contribution of £10 per person on UK holidays, £20 per person on short haul holidays, and £30 per person on long haul holidays.
Our groups help local people enjoy walking and protect the places we all love to walk. Most groups organise regular walks led by local experts – a great way to get outside, make new friends and discover how walking boosts your health and happiness. You’re very welcome to try walking with us, or to get involved in looking after paths and green spaces and opening up new places to explore.
