Stroll around Bristol with month-long celebration of walking


Discover Bristol on foot with the UK's largest urban walking festival in May, featuring themed walks and events.

Bristol is a natural showcase for walking. With green spaces throughout the city, beautiful English countryside nearby, vibrant urban culture, history, architecture and art, May’s month-long Bristol Walk Fest aims to get people out exploring a diverse, passionate and green city.

With over 150 walks from 60 organisations, there’s a huge range of walks 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 your Bristol city break). Some highlights from 2016 included a walking tour in and around the Underfall Yard - a Brunel-designed historic boatyard with a new visitor centre; a Nordic Walking taster on the Clifton Downs and a natural dye plant foraging walk in Leigh Woods. Aside from walking there are plenty of other activities to enjoy along the way.
