Walking groups

Across North Somerset there is a wide range of Walking Groups, to suit all abilities, including beginners. We have our Health Walks programme which offer sociable short walks between 30-90 minutes. Although some walks are running at limited capacity because of Covid-19, visit the Walking for Health website to find your local Health Walk.

Many of us want to re-connect with others through walking and we hope to support the development of new walking groups in the future. If you want to be kept up to date with new walking groups please email us: go4life@n-somerset.gov.uk. For those who wish to walk with others you can get in touch here.

We would love to hear from anybody who has an interest in setting up a new walking group. We can help in providing guidance around health and safety, insurance, planning and preparation when taking groups out as well as potential ‘start up’ funding. There is more information about starting a walking group on the Travel West website here: https://travelwest.info/walk/starting-a-walking-group

If you would like to go on a more challenging/longer walk, take a look at other walking groups available across North Somerset (listed in the Walking Groups document above).

Please note: None of these walks are run by North Somerset Council and each group has their own guidance around running of their walking activities to ensure all walkers are kept safe.
