Walking Festivals in Britain - October to December 2020

The Walking Festival programme for 2020 has obviously been affected by the continuing Coronavirus situation.  Here's a list of all the walking festivals and related events we know about happening between October and December 2020.  


If you know of a festival or event taking place we haven't got listed, please get in touch with us here.


Jump to October, November or December.


October
28th September - 2nd October  - CANCELLED UNTIL NEXT YEAR


Walk The Isle of Man
Embracing all that’s good about the great outdoors, this long established and hugely popular six-day Festival is equally suited to individuals or larger groups.  It’s a fun way to meet new people and take in the full range of the Isle of Man’s spectacular scenery - all at the same time.

Take part in one of five specially selected daily walks over the five days, varying in distance and degree of difficulty to suit all levels.  Each walk is led by an experienced and knowledgeable guide, who’ll point out areas of historic and cultural interest and offer fascinating insights into the Island’s heritage.  Along the way, you’ll get to witness the Isle of Man’s abundant wildlife and marine life first hand – it never disappoints!

1st - 31st October


Wild Scilly

Explore the magic of Scilly on the cusp of the season when the nights are drawing in and there can be a nip to the fresh sea air.  Put your walking boots on and discover a multitude of themed treks with our ever popular, experienced local guides.  Feast on locally foraged foods, learn about maritime history, discover the wildlife, flora and fauna of Scilly or experience a beach landing on one the uninhabited islands.

7th - 11th October


Dursley Walking Festival

Varied programme of 20+ short and longer walks including special interest walks e.g. photography and local history.  Social events where non-walkers are welcome e.g. a quiz, a local historical talk and a tea and cakes afternoon. Full programme will be available on the website in August

12th - 25th October


This year, the GM Walking Festival moves to October and becomes virtual!  Find out more at the website.

15th - 20th October


Boscastle Walking Week

The shortened BWW takes place in October this year instead of April.  A range of walks and activities with local guides in the beautiful coastal village of Boscastle and the surrounding area.  In the eleventh year of the festival, there will be an extended range of walks and activities to pick and mix from - suitable for all ages and abilities.  You could join one of our experienced and informed local guides on a ramble to waterfalls or steep climbs to Cornwall’s highest coastal cliff top, or meander along the country lanes and pathways that would have been familiar to the writer Thomas Hardy, whose life-changing visit to Boscastle produced poetry regarded by many as amongst the finest in the English language.

Many of the walks are short and family-friendly, although there are always plenty of yomps for the seasoned hiker too.
