10th May – 1st June 2014
Now in its seventh year, the Suffolk Walking Festival is bigger and better than ever before, with nearly 80 guided walks planned, covering the whole of the county. We have a lovely mix of short strolls around medieval villages and market towns and longer rambles through the gentle landscapes of Suffolk, through Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty and along the glorious Suffolk coast.
The Discover Suffolk Challenge Walk this year follows The Angles Way, which meanders for 90 miles along the Suffolk/Norfolk border, through the picturesque Waveney Valley and the sandy landscape of The Brecks. Do one day, two days or all six, the choice is yours, but as always, there will be treats and prizes for those completing the whole route. Our themed walks have some wonderful titles such as ‘Across the Marshes to the Castle‘, ‘A Point to my Ramblings‘, ‘Tiptoe Through the Heather’ and ‘Prickles’ Story Walk‘.
Some include refreshments – a cream tea perhaps, or a glass of local wine and all of them are a fun and sociable way to learn about the lovely county of Suffolk. We will also be celebrating the 20th anniversary of the Stour Valley Path with a series of walks covering the length of the path over six days, with the Dedham Vale and Stour Valley Project. We invite you to spend some time here and make the most of what Suffolk has to offer in abundance: pretty countryside, lovely villages, elegant market towns, warm hospitality and a fascinating history.
