This September you’re invited to Britain’s biggest walking festival! We know walking is great for your health and well-being. That’s why we’re launching a nationwide walking festival.

Join us for a walk about from 3-11 September and discover more of what Britain has to offer walkers. Everyone is welcome to join these free walks. Get started by going to the festival site.

Something for everyone
We want you to be able to walk in whatever way best suits you. You might be taking your first steps, or you might be a seasoned expert.

You might like to walk in big groups, with the family or on your own. We really don’t mind; we’ve got something for everyone – we’re Britain’s walking charity after all.

A range of walks
The Isle of Wight Ramblers will have a variety of walks which will all be open to the public.

Walks from 2-15 miles are planned. Walking leaflets are available for those people who prefer to do their own thing.

Over 60 Island walks are downloadable from our Website.

All 12 Rambles by Bus leaflets are also available as well as accessible walks at Yarmouth, Sandown and the Tapnell Trail.

People’s Postcode Lottery
Walk About is only made possible because of our award from the players of the People’s Postcode Lottery.

Thanks to their generous support we will inspire more people to get out and experience the enormous benefits and joys that walking can bring.
