The city’s hugely popular, annual walking festival – Bristol Walk Fest is back! The month-long celebration of all things walking throughout our beautiful city will take place from 1st to 31st May 2022, and we have a wealth of in-person walking related events and activities, self-guided walking routes and challenges, and much more for you throughout the national walking month of May.
Bristol’s walking festival, now in its 10th year, regularly attracts over 7,500 attendances year on year from across the city and beyond.
We will be showcasing a wide variety of walking related events and activities, personal challenges, self-guided walking routes and discussion events throughout the month of May. Whether you like historical tours, nature walks, exploring street art, walking sports, or you just want to get fit and enjoy some fresh air, there will be something for everyone.
The mostly free walks and activities are for all ages, all backgrounds and all levels of fitness. See what you’d like to give a go, then get out there and enjoy what our great city has to offer!
As a year-round gift from us, you can access all the walks, information and inspiration on this website to keep you walking around our city.
We’ve also developed a helpful booklet (available in both pdf and physical format) featuring a selection of walks throughout Bristol for you to access whenever you’d like.
