Lewisham Healthy Walks

About Us

Get some fresh air - being in nature makes us less stressed.

Be a bit more active - walking is a great way to improve health and well being.

Meet new people - join a regular walk group, make friends and discover new places.

Free, friendly walks, led by trained volunteer walk leaders in Parks across the borough.

Each walk takes place weekly, unless cancelled due to extreme weather!  You can just turn up at the start but for the walks with varied routes  we recommend that you contact us before your first walk as the routes vary considerably each week. Please book where indicated.

Our Events

Enjoy walking? Want to get more involved? Why not join our team of volunteer walk leaders - you'll need to attend the Free one day training course where you'll get all the information you need.

If you decide to lead one of our regular walks you'll get support and advice from the scheme co-ordinator and other walk leaders.

Being a walk leader is great fun, you'll meet new people and get fit at the same time!

People of all abilities are able to become walk leaders and we would be interested in hearing from you if you are interested in checking routes for accessibilty.

  Please get in touch to find out more and book a place on the next course: Thursday 15 June 9.30 - 4.00 in Catford
