Get set for Beds walking festival

Put your best foot forward and head out into the Bedfordshire countryside for this year’s county walking festival.

More than 70 walks have been set up for the 9-day long festival from September 6-14, taking in some of the breathtaking scenery across Bedfordshire.

Whether it’s a family ramble with the children or an informative walk with a knowledgeable leader or something more serious with a 40 mile challenge over two days the festival has it all.

Organised by The Bedfordshire Rambler groups the festival offers an interesting and varied walk every day and many are accessible using public transport.

Organiser Barry Ingram said: “ This will be the sixth and each year we have seen an increase in people enjoying the excellent walking opportunities Bedfordshire has to offer. The walks are free although a few have a small charge for additional services and the fact many are accessible by public transport is good for the environment”

Programmes are available in Libraries, Tourist Information Centres, at visitor attractions and many other places and also available on the festival web site: or by contacting the organiser via email: [email protected].
