Our walks programme has been successfully operating within Covid-19 guidelines and restrictions since April 2021.

  • No limit to group sizes

  • No pre-booking unless required for booking a meal after a Tuesday or Thursday morning walk as required by the pub

  • Occasionally the starting point or other walk details have to be changed and each group endeavours to notify regular walkers by email and changes will also be shown on this page. It is always worth checking this page before deciding to join a walk and also contacting the leader. This is especially important for the Tuesday and Thursday morning walks where there is an option to stay for a meal afterwards.

The calendar of walks can be viewed by following this link

You can also download and print the current programme

For further information please read the Ramblers Covid secure guidance

If you have tried to log on to Assemble and are having trouble the most likely cause is you’ve not been recorded on Assemble yet. 

To be recorded on Assemble, volunteers just need to email volunteersupport@ramblers.zendesk.com with their role, Group/Area, and their membership number (if a member). We also ask that they copy in their chair or secretary to the email. 

Alternatively, chairs and secretaries can also let us know about volunteers in their Group/Area on their behalf.

If you have a smartphone or tablet you can also view the walks programme by downloading the Ramblers App. 

Visit the App Store (iPhone) or Google Play (Android phones)

Search for the app using the term ‘Ramblers’ then download the app. Go to “Sign In” and then “Log In” and put in your email and password. These should be exactly the same details as are on ‘My account’.

We successfully resumed a limited programme last summer and followed Ramblers UK guidelines to ensure that we complied with social distancing regulations and track and trace guidelines without any reports of walkers succumbing to Covid-19 as a result of taking part.

Leicester and District Ramblers is an active group with a programme offering a variety of walks to suit all levels of walkers, including short evening walks in the summer, half-day and all day walks all year round and all day walks further afield on our monthly coach rambles. For further information please see the Walk Descriptions link on the right.

If you’re new to walking or new to the area or just visiting, walking with us is a great way to explore the county including the historic geology and woodland of Charnwood Forest, the reclamation of the former mining area which is now part of the National Forest, the rolling hills of fox-hunting country and the historical battlefield sites associated with the Battle of Bosworth as well as many pretty villages, canals, rivers, disused railway lines and of course footpaths and bridleways.

So if you’ve ever wondered where that footpath sign leads to why not join us for a walk?

You don’t have to be a member initially but we would encourage you to join once you have enjoyed 3 walks with us.

We also have a Facebook page which you can view here
