About Us

Please remember to wear sensible footwear, bring waterproofs if necessary and bring a drink to take along the walk with you.

Friday Walks

We meet outside the Aquarium every Friday at 11.15 for a 11.30 start.  In the morning we do a  fast-paced 60 minute walk around the Hoe with some steps and inclines.  We then have a cuppa and chat in the Aquarium cafe!

We also meet in the afternoon at 1.15 for a 1.30 start - this is a gentler walk of about 30 minutes on a flat route around Sutton Harbour. Some people enjoy the walks so much that they come to both and have lunch with us in the Aquarium! 

Our walks are open to all and are delivered in partnership by the National Marine Aquarium and Improving Lives Plymouth's Active for All service which supports adults with mental heath support needs and/ or learning disabilities to become more physcially active.

The Active for All Walk leader is called Cindy and is supported by volunteer walk leaders.

Well behaved dogs welcome!
