Ramblers Walk About Festival: 26 May to 3 June
People in Bristol are being invited to step out with the Ramblers for their Walk About festival this summer, to discover the joys of walking. The nationwide festival, supported by players of People’s Postcode Lottery, has hundreds of free group walks on offer across the Britain. This year, many of the festival walks highlight hidden gems that can be found along the way – from unexpected views and peaceful picnic spots to atmospheric ancient ruins – that can often only be spotted when you head out on foot.

Coach trips to Teignmouth and to the Malverns
On 10th June, there will be a coach trip to the South Devon coast, exploring the coastal path between Torquay and Teignmouth. This is a surprisingly rugged piece of the coastline and is also relatively quiet and remote at times. There will be two walks, a longer one of about 12 miles starting at Torquay and a shorter one of about 7 miles starting at Babbacombe. Both will end on the seafront at Teignmouth. Although the distances are short, there are quite a few climbs so the pace on both walks will take that into account. The coach will leave the centre of Bristol at 8am.
There will also be a trip to the Malverns on Sunday, 9 September, when there will be A, B and shorter B walks.
