The Walking for Health Walks are part of the Everyday Activity Programme and are led by qualified experts. While all walks are open to anyone, organisers have coded the walks for suitability for both beginners and intermediate walkers. To enable the widest possible audience to take part, start times, locations and days of the week vary from walk to walk.
