Fancy trying a bit of mindfulness on the move? Or a photography or wildlife walk around your local area? Or even a guided tour of a historical Hertfordshire town or village? Whatever your interest, there will be a walk to suit you as part of Hertfordshire’s first ever Walking Festival this May.
The festival has been organised by Hertfordshire County Council’s Countryside Management Service, in partnership with a range of local organisations and dedicated volunteers.
There are 75 free guided walks taking place across the county throughout the month, ranging from TV and film trails, singing walks, late night bat-spotting walks, family-friendly bug walks and many more. There really is something for all the family to encourage you to get out and about this spring and find out what Hertfordshire really has to offer. Walks will take place during the day and evening, to enable as many people as possible to take part.
The full list of walks is available online or can be picked up at libraries and other community hubs. Some walks have limited space, so book early to avoid disappointment. All details for how to book are available in the Walking Festival Booklet.
