Save the date for Winchester Ramblers’ new Walking Weekend

Winchester Ramblers, supported by Winchester City Council and Winchester Tourist Guides, have organised a new Walking Weekend event in the district.

The Walking Weekend, which will take place from Friday 14 to Sunday 16 June, will offer a series of guided walks in the city, all of which will start and finish at the green in front of Winchester Cathedral in the city centre.

The walks are open to all walkers from 16 years-old and upwards, and will vary in length and type, from short city walks through to longer downland rambles.

Organiser of the Walking Weekend Phill Jennison said: “At the local branch of the Ramblers, we have been looking at ways to promote the health and wellbeing benefits of walking to the wider public, as well as encouraging people to get out and explore the incredible countryside around Winchester. 

“This is a way of reaching out to non-members, and of promoting the important work that we do to help keep our precious rights of way open and accessible for everyone".

Winchester City Council’s Cabinet Member for Community and Engagement Cllr Kathleen Becker added: “This first official Walking Weekend is a great way to explore some of the fantastic walking opportunities in the district whilst benefitting from the wealth of experience of both Winchester Ramblers and Winchester Tourist Guides.

“It’s a wonderful way to meet new people as well as taking advantage of the fresh air and the chance to learn more about our historic city.”   

Reservations for the Walking Weekend walks are available on Eventbrite:
