Top class walking country - big skies, wooded valleys, stunning landscape – we have it all here in the North Wessex Downs! And our very first walking festival is in celebration of it all. June is the perfect time to get outside, stretch your legs, breathe deeply, venture into unknown territory – maybe even make new friends or learn a new skill along the way - and we have put together a selection of walks to encourage you to do some – or all – of those things. Most importantly, we would like you to enjoy this quintessential – and outstandingly beautiful - English countryside.
And did you know that by getting out and about during our walking festival you are also exploring the Great West Way, a world-first multi-modal touring route between London and Bristol roaming through idyllic countryside, quaint villages and elegant towns. For more information on how to experience The North Wessex Downs as part of the Great West Way see here.

We are very grateful to all our partner organisations and walk leaders for helping us to put together our festival.
