Wellbeing Walks (formerly Walking for Health)

Helping people lead a more active lifestyle

We offer free, regular, led Wellbeing Walks for people of all abilities. Our walks are friendly, welcoming and empowering, they are a great opportunity to explore the outdoors, discover new places and meet new people. Wellbeing Walks logo

Our walk leaders are trained volunteers who are on hand to provide encouragement and support to walkers of all abilities.

It's easy to start walking, as the walks are free and easy, ranging from 30 to 90 minutes. Some walks stop for coffee afterwards in a nearby cafe, a good opportunity to socialise and relax after the walk.

For more information, please visit Wellbeing Walks West Berkshire on the Ramblers website.
