Walk and Talk Plymouth

About Us

The Walk and Talk Plymouth scheme is organised by Livewell Southwests Wellbeing Team, Plymouth City Council, Timebank - opportunity knocks and Volunteers, to provide free short health walks in and around Plymouth.

Our Scheme has regular walks in and around the parks, woodlands and nature reserves of the city.  Currently we have at least one short easier walk of up to 30 minutes per week, with some longer 30-60 or up to 90 minute walks to build your activity levels further.  Walks in the nature reserves and woodland can be muddy during the wetter months, so sturdy footwear is recommended.

Short easier walks are suitable for all ablilties and are on good paths with only some small hills.

Our other walks can be a little more challenging, with some uneven terrain and longer inclines.

The walks generally take place at 10:30am or 11am on weekday mornings, but we do have some walks on a saturday.

Please see the current programme for more details of when and where the walks take place.
