West Cheshire Walking Festival 2019

Wednesday 1st – Friday 31st May


With over 200 walking routes in the wonderful west Cheshire, the West Cheshire Walking Festival returns in 2019 for its third year and is bigger and better than ever!

All you need to do is grab the booklet, put on your shoes and away you go! Simply choose a walk and then put one foot in front of the other.

You can find the booklet in venues all across west Cheshire including libraries, GPs, Council buildings, leisure centres, children centres and many more! You can also access a digital copy by clicking the booklet on this page.

Whether you want a lunchtime stroll, a family-friendly wander, or to explore the countryside, there is something for everybody in this year’s collection.

Medically proven to improve both physical and mental health, why don’t you pop out for a walk and post your photos on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram tagging @ActiveCheshire or @ACTeamWest with #WCWalkingFestival

Just remember, everywhere is in walking distance as long as you have the time!
