Welcome to the Suffolk Walking Festival!
The Suffolk Walking Festival is one of the country’s largest and longest running walking events. The festival covers 3 weeks each May with over 100 walks for all abilities. All walks are guided by experts who reveal local sights and tell the stories that make Suffolk so very special. Walks range from short walks of under a mile to the annual Challenge Walk, a multi-day guided hike along one of Suffolk’s many long distance trails. Many walks include refreshments, a pub stop or even a cream tea!
2021 VIRTUAL Suffolk Walking Festival – Saturday 22nd – Monday 31st May
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic we have cancelled the guided Suffolk Walking Festival for the second year in a row. However, we are very aware of the increased popularity of walking over the past year. You may have shared our experience of seeing many more people exploring and discovering footpaths, some of which have probably never seen so many boot prints. And we are acutely aware of the importance of the outdoors and the impact of the natural environment on our physical health and our mental wellbeing.
Because of this we have decided to make the 2021 Suffolk Walking Festival our very first Virtual Suffolk Walking Festival. We know it won’t be quite the same as being on a guided walk, of hearing about somewhere new, or meeting new friends, but we will bring you lots of inspiration for enjoying Suffolk’s countryside over the spring and summer. The new 10-day virtual festival will have a changing daily programme including a Walk of the Day, fun facts about the county, family activity sheets, videos and audios from around the county, a ‘My Suffolk, Your Suffolk’ feature of favourite walks, and a competition where you could win 4 tickets to next year’s festival and a year’s subscription to the Suffolk Magazine.
Keep visiting the website over the coming weeks for more details about the 2021 VIRTUAL Suffolk Walking Festival, and don’t forget to follow us on facebook too!
