Suffolk Walking Festival

The Suffolk Walking Festival celebrates both walking and the wonderful and diverse Suffolk countryside. This year's Festival takes place from 13th May - 4th June and is the 10th anniversary of the Festival.

To celebrate, there's  a bigger and better programme than ever before!

With over 100 different themed and led walks available ranging in distance from 1 mile to 60, this year's festival offers a range of opportunities for both veteran walkers and those new to walking alike, to get involved. 

2017 marks the Suffolk Walking Festival's 10th birthday and the end of Suffolk's Year of Walking. To celebrate you are invited to the party!

Whether you are a veteran walker or have never been inspired to walk before, there are a wonderful and diverse range of walks on offer with something suitable for everybody. Join ambles around market towns, strolls in local parks and jaunts through the countryside. There really is something for everyone!

If you fancy a particularly fun challenge then consider the Classic and the Mega Challenge Walks; This year exploring the beautiful Stour Valley Path in the Dedham Vale AONB, in either 30 hours, or at a slightly more leisurely pace spread over four days. 

Both walks, like many others include refreshments at local hotspots. If this is not your cup of tea, then join one of the shorter walks. Take your pick from Mindfulness Walks, Sketchbook Strolls, Wellbeing Walks and even a trail or two at Jimmy's Farm, all designed to help you feel great and have some fun!

The full programme of events can be found at
