Walking Festival

To celebrate 2019 being the Year of Green Action, we’re running an extended three week New Forest Walking Festival to help more people discover the National Park’s amazing landscapes and wildlife.

This year’s festival will run between Saturday 12 October and Sunday 3 November.

Book your place on this year’s walks.

The festival has run annually since 2013 and each year boasts dozens of guided walks led by knowledgeable local experts to help you discover more about the history, heritage and wildlife of the Forest.

The 2018 festival saw 1,600 people enjoy 75 behind the scenes family strolls, history hikes, wildlife walks and more. All walks were expert-led by the New Forest National Park Authority and partner organisations, helping people learn more about the National Park.
