Discover Bristol on foot with the UK's largest urban walking festival, featuring themed walks and special events.
Bristol is a natural showcase for urban walking. With green spaces throughout the city, beautiful English countryside nearby, vibrant culture, history, architecture and art, May’s month-long Bristol Walk Fest aims to get people out exploring its diverse and passionate city.
With over 150 walks from 60 organisations, there’s a huge range of trips on offer, all with easy-to-follow grading and descriptions (from beginner to experienced rambler), with most offered free of charge - great if you're looking for cheap or free things to do on a Bristol city break. Some highlights from previous years include a walking tour in and around the Underfall Yard (a Brunel-designed historic boatyard); a Nordic Walking taster on the Clifton Downs; and a natural dye plant foraging walk in Leigh Woods.
In addition to straight walking, there's also opportunities to try out various walking sports, including football and rugby. Get your finest walking boots or trainers on, and discover something new in the city of Bristol!
Bristol Walk Fest 2019 takes place every day in May, and a full programme of events can be found via the website.
