Our Events

If you want to see if you can manage around 6 miles, then come and try out our special event walks. We don't walk very fast, and stop to admire nature.

The 2-3 hour events are within a 20-mile radius of Guildford, normally on Tuesdays, between March and October.

Write to Guildfordwfh@outlook.com for the latest list.
