The Ramblers are holding a Festival of Winter Walks over the festive season (20 December – 4 January). So why don’t you take a walk in a winter wonderland this festive season, the Ramblers Association have hundreds of free, group walks to choose from. So whether you want a short stroll to burn off the Christmas dinner or a heartier ramble to kick-start your new year’s resolution, they have got something for you.
So get your friends or family together, wrap up warm, and take in Christmas markets and carol singers, tread through winter forests or roam over snow-covered hills. The Festival of Winter Walks is open to everyone. There are short fun walks that children will love; leisurely strolls for people new to walking; and longer walks for those that want a good leg-stretch over the Christmas break.
So put on your hat and scarf and join the Ramblers as they head out into the crisp, clear winter to enjoy the season.
