High Weald Walking Festival – programme coming soon

The team has been working hard to curate more than 30 FREE guided walks across the High Weald Area of Outstanding Beauty, as well as a range of self-guided walks allowing you to explore this precious landscape at your own pace. This year’s event runs from Saturday 11 – Sunday 19 September 2021.

Things are running a bit differently this year, with a simple booking system to help manage numbers. From Monday 9 August, you will be able to view the walking programme on the Festival website. Each walk has its own Eventbrite booking page, and you can join as many as you like. The process is quick, easy and – most importantly – every walk is free!

Here are a few highlights of the Festival programme to whet your appetite:

  • High Weald Dark Skies Walk: This will be a leisurely walk to enjoy the stars across the High Weald with a Dark Skies story.
  • WealdWay 40th Anniversary Walk: A circular walk using the WealdWay and Tunbridge Wells Circular, visiting the village of Spelhurst for lunch.
  • Full Steam Ahead at Horsted Keynes: Recapture the golden age of steam on this walk beside the Bluebell Railway and through fields and woods.

Please share these details with any friends, family or colleagues who might have discovered a love of walking over the last year, and encourage them to join in.

There will be an email reminder when booking goes live, so join the mailing list to make sure you don’t miss out!
