Walking with Leicester Ramblers

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.

Leicester Group organises a variety of walks:

  • Every Tuesday and Thursday mornings – 5.5-6.5 mile walks starting at 10am with optional pub lunch (restrictions permitting) We try to plan walks so that the starting points do not clash so that walkers can enjoy 2 similar length walks in the same week but from different parts of the area. We are also hoping to introduce some slightly shorter walks starting from the same point to encourage new walkers or those recovering from illness etc.
  • Thursday morning – longer walks approximately 10 miles (slightly longer in summer) starting at 9.30am unless otherwise stated bring your own packed lunch
  • Wednesday evenings (weekly May - July) approximately 4 miles in length starting at 7pm
  • Alternate Saturday mornings – 5.5-6.5 mile walks starting at 10am
  • Saturday All-Day Walks (every Saturday) – longer and more strenuous walks usually outside Leicestershire
  • Sunday All-Day Walks (hopefully weekly) 10-12 mile walks at a moderate pace starting at 10.00am and 10.15am
  • Sunday Afternoon Walks (1 per month June-Sept) easy walk approx. 2 hours starting at 3pm
  • Sunday Coach Rambles (1  per month) we hope to resume these later in the year when things are a little more settled. Different grades of walks will be offered. Watch this space for details

  • Dogs are not permitted on any of our walks.
  • Children accompanied by a parent or guardian are welcome.
  • All walks have morning and afternoon coffee breaks. 
  • Most full day walks usually have a lunch stop at a pub, and are not really suitable for young children, but accompanied older children are welcome.
  • All walks are open to the public, though you would be expected to join the Ramblers after taking part in three.
  • If you are new to the Ramblers, you will be welcomed on any of our walks; the coach rambles in particular are a good day out with a choice of walks, a lunch stop and an evening meal before we return home, and provide an excellent introduction to the camaraderie of our Group.
  • For most walks you can just turn up, although it is likely that a booking system will be in place whilst we are experiencing the effect of Covid-19. You will also need to book a place on the coach for coach rambles when they resume.

We also hold social events from time to time - skittles evenings and curry evenings when we raise money for the Derbyshire, Leicestershire and Rutland Air ambulance
