North Tyneside: Getting Active Walks

About Us

There are a number of weekly and bi-weekly walks taking place in North Tyneside of varying lengths for varying abilities.

The led walks include a social element  where the group finishes up with tea/coffee as the walk concludes. This allows for all walkers to return in their own time within the group environment,  therefore walking at their own comfortable pace and not missing the social element afterwards.

Some of our walks also have the adaptability to cater for slower walkers and provide shorter walks within the regular routes to enable walking for all to be provided for all.

All walks are led by fully qualified walk leaders with local knowledge and walking experience who are happy to welcome new comers all throughout the year.

You can download our walk programme from the right hand side of this page.
