Monthly Walks

GroupWalk

We organise walks once a month with a theme of interest that are open to all.

 

Details of our planned walks can be found below and depending on the device you are using to view this page, you can either hover your mouse over each event or use the drop-down arrow to find out more details about each walk.


These walks have become very popular and due to increasing numbers we now have to limit numbers by operating a registration system.

Full Members: Free

Non Members: £5

Walk Registration

Registering for our walks is free for full members and will be available two weeks before the walk. There is a cost of £5 to non-members. 


Full Members will receive an email with a voucher code that can be added during the registration process which reduces the cost to £0. You can also find the code for the next walk if you log into your account from our home page, just scroll down the account home page once logged in. (If you do not receive an email, please check the address you have provided, or that it hasn’t been diverted to a junk folder etc).
 

To Register click on the button below to book your place or places and please adjust the quantity according to the number of people you are booking for.
 

You will receive a confirmation of your booking immediately which will include the details about where the walk starts and your ticket/s. You will need to bring the ticket to the start of the walk, either by printing it out or you can show a digital version on your phone.

 

Please do not bring additional friends or family along without ordering a ticket for them or share the meeting point as we have to ensure the numbers are kept to the agreed number.


Registrations will close when all tickets have been ordered, or at 5pm on the evening before the walk.


Unfortunately, we are unable to show how many tickets remain whilst you are registering. If you are trying to order more than remain it will not let you order more than are available for that walk. If this happens and you are short by 1 ticket, please order the remaining tickets and get in touch using the contact us page.

Tickets

Please note that tickets are released 15 days before each walk.

(Members receive an email 16 days before with a coupon code)
