Group name: Hillingdon
This group is a part of Buckinghamshire, Milton Keynes and West Middlesex Area.
Our activities include:
Short and easy walks
Hillingdon Ramblers offer a full programme of walks thanks to our team of dedicated walk leaders. Our programme is especially varied thanks to our location on the west side of London. Our proximity to the M40 and M25 allows us to explore the countryside of Buckinghamshire, Berkshire, Hertfordshire and Surrey, sharing cars whenever possible, whilst our excellent public transport allows us to access the whole of Greater London.
Why walk with us?
Because you'll be welcomed into a friendly group made up of people from many walks of life who share a love of the countryside. We have over 300 members, but on a typical walk, there are 10-20 of us.
Where do we walk?
Our walks are listed in the clickable blue sidebar on the right of this page. As you can see, we walk extensively outside our home area, especially in the Chilterns and Surrey Hills. Saturday morning walks often start from a Metropolitan line station while Saturday afternoon walks are generally less than 30 mins drive from Hillingdon. Our Sunday and very popular Wednesday walks may venture further afield. Of course we also have walks exploring Hillingdon and London, especially in winter, but we do like to get out into the easily accessible and beautiful countryside.
When and how far?
Our easiest-paced walks are on Saturday mornings and last about 2 hours. Saturday afternoons walks are slightly more demanding at 5 to 6 miles. On Sundays and Wednesdays, starting mid-morning, we walk 10 to 14 miles at a moderate pace for the full day.
We also travel further afield taking a few days to explore other parts of the UK. Recent visits have taken us to the Lake District, Dorset, Exmoor and Sussex.
