Walking Festival

The 2018 New Forest Walking Festival will run from 13 to 28 October.

The festival has run annually since 2013 and each year boasts dozens of guided walks led by knowledgeable local experts to help you discover more about the history, heritage and wildlife of the Forest.

The 2017 festival saw 1,500 people enjoy 75 behind the scenes family strolls, history hikes, wildlife walks and more. All walks were expert-led by the New Forest National Park Authority and partner organisations, helping people learn more about the National Park.

Many walks are free or discounted if you travel without a car and show your bus or train ticket, or you can show you arrived by cycling or walking. Please see the relevant event pages for prices.

Please email any questions to or call 01590 646650.
