Welcome to the Suffolk Walking Festival!
The Suffolk Walking Festival is one of the country’s largest and longest running walking events.
The festival takes place every May. Since its launch in 2008 it has developed a loyal following with a wonderful mix of walks for all abilities and all ages.
In 2012 we launched the Challenge Walk, a multi-day hike following one of the county’s many long distance trails.
And in 2018 we introduced the Fringe Festival, a series of events and activities where walking takes a backseat as you get close to nature in the very heart of Suffolk’s countryside.
2020 saw the festival put on hold but in 2021 we launched our very first VIRTUAL Suffolk Walking Festival! Over 10 days we ‘met’ hundreds of people with suggested walks of the day, many fascinating facts about the county, fun videos shorts and ‘Mindfulness Minutes’, and we even created The Suffolk Walking Podcast! You can still visit the VIRTUAL Festival by clicking on the VSWF 2021 page above.
We’re now making plans for 2022 and look forward to greeting and leading you around the varied landscapes, historic villages and meandering footpaths of Suffolk in May 2022!
