Harrow Health Walks

About Us

Around 250 people each month are already walking their way to health in Harrow - join them for a leisurely and social walk around Harrow's wonderful green spaces.

Walking for Health is a great way to meet new like minded people and explore your local area without having to worry about getting lost or having to plan your route!

Harrow Health Walks is ideal for people new to exercise or those who would like to do a little more exercise; particularly those asked to exercise by their GP.  We also welcome more experienced walkers or those looking to improve on their current fitness levels- these people can follow the walk leaders around the more challenging routes! Some of the longer walks do not appear here as they are out of the scope for Walking for Health - please visit our website as listed below for more details. 

Our FREE weekly walks are led by at least two WfH qualified Walk Leaders. With no need to book in advance you can just turn up on the day, you can attend as many walks as you want and all you need are some comfy shoes- they don't have to be walking boots.
