Active Northumberland Wellbeing Walks

Ramblers Wellbeing Walks

Free, organised weekly health walks starting from various towns and villages across Northumberland. All the walks are led by trained Volunteer Walk Leaders and are between 2-3 miles long. With no need to book, it’s the perfect opportunity to get outdoors, get active and meet new people. Just turn up to the meeting place a few minutes before the walk and make yourself known to the walk leader who will tell you all you need to know. The walks are aimed at helping to get people started and for those with health problems. A full timetable of walks can be viewed on Active Northumberland’s website.
