Walking Friends

Walking Friends was formed over ten years ago to enable people to enjoy walking regularly both in Portsmouth and the surrounding countryside.

During week days there are both 2 and 3 mile circular walks; 3 days
a week every week following regular routes.

There are facilities to have a hot or cold drink after the walks.

At weekends we have 1 or 2 country walks a month, these are approximately 5 miles long.

We use buses, car share or when expenses allow a coach to reach our destination.

Trained walk leaders ensure that the pace is right for all walkers and lead all our walks, and a walk leader to be a back marker to check on everyone.

All of our walks have Health and Safety checks.

The country walks are all pre-walked to ensure the comfort and safety of our members.

Our club is friendly and open to everyone.
We walk in all weathers, so stout boots /trainers and waterproofs are useful.

Advice on the right clothing etc. is readily available from our Walk Leaders.

Many friendships are formed, walking is an ideal way to get to know people and is,a safe, enjoyable and easy way to keep healthy.

Wellbeing Walks Portsmouth

It’s almost impossible not to feel good when we’re walking outdoors – it’s a natural mood-booster! And the great news is we don’t need to walk far or fast to feel its effects on our health and wellbeing. Simply getting out is a tonic for our minds and bodies, and it can be sociable too.

Almost all of us can manage a stroll, and Ramblers Wellbeing Walks make it easier to start walking and stay active. And you’ll certainly never be short of good company. Join us on our walks listed on our website, you can just turn up on the day and our welcoming leaders will help you to register to the walks. If you would like to discuss any information further, please call or email below and we will get back to you about the walks. Ramblers wellbeing Walks are a volunteer based scheme, offering free socialable led walks in Portsmouth. This scheme is run jointly by Portsmouth City Council and The Ramblers.
