Ramblers Festival of Winter Walks
Hundreds of walks take place around the country during the festival. All are free, fun and open to anyone and everyone from toddlers to grandparents. Chosen and led by Ramblers volunteers, the walks will showcase Britain at its wintry best. Many of the walks are short and family-friendly, although there are always plenty of yomps for the seasoned hiker too.
