Portsmouth Healthy Walks
No walks until further notice
Portsmouth Healthy Walks have 18 walks led by trained volunteer walk leaders. These walks are a mixture of city and greener walks and are a great way to improve fitness as well as make new friends.
Please wear suitable footwear, comfortable clothing and bring along a drink. New walkers should arrive ten minutes before the start of a walk to complete a simple registration form. Many walks are wheelchair and buggy friendly. All walks are FREE and everyone is welcome. At the end of the walks there is an opportunity to have tea/coffee - just bring along some cash for a cuppa.
