Walks will go ahead whatever the weather. Dogs are welcome if well behaved and kept on a lead. Children under 18 must be accompanied by an adult.  If you are looking for a wheelchair accessible walk, please contact us first to check the route is appropriate.

LE3 Health Walks
12 noon on some Thursdays (see Walks Calendar) from the BRITE Centre, Braunstone Avenue, LE3 1LE

This is a new series of walks, currently being trialled in the Braunstone area. These steady walks take place weekly during September and October, and may continue if they prove popular.  The length varies from 30 minutes to 1 hour. See the walk calendar for details.

Friday Lunchtime Strolls - in Leicester City Centre
12.30pm outside Leicester Town Hall.

These popular lunchtime strolls take interesting routes through the city and are a great opportunity to step out during a lunch break for a social stroll. Our walks will encourage a steady to moderate pace and we will aim to deliver an enjoyable, sociable and ‘healthy’ walk. To help walkers decide if a walk is suitable for them, we grade our walks as short, medium or long. We follow the model below:

First Friday of the month – short walk only (30 minutes)
Last Friday of the month – longer walk (between 60 – 90 minutes)
All other Fridays – medium walk (45-60 minutes)

All our walks are on firm paths and start from the Town Hall in Leicester city centre, which is easily accessible by public transport. Toilets are available in the Town Hall. 

Everyone is welcome to attend, no matter your age or level of fitness. If you are looking for a wheelchair accessible walk, please contact us in advance to check if the route is appropriate.
