Winchcombe Cotswolds Walking Festival
Welcome to the eleventh Winchcombe Cotswolds Walking Festival. Situated in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with an abundance of footpaths and history, the festival offers a great selection of 24 walks to suit all abilities plus 2 evening events. Organised by Winchcombe Welcomes Walkers, 15 – 17 May and based in our beautiful Saxon town steeped in history.
The walks, led by knowledgeable local guides follow the River Isbourne, visit a working quarry, cross the top of the Cotswolds, visit a fruit farm, a beekeeper, a secluded Roman Villa amongst others. Get up for the dawn chorus, walk to a pub for lunch, learn about Sudeley Castle’s involvement in the Civil War and find out about the famous Cotswold Lion sheep or attempt the Winchcombe Way Challenge.
The three days is a very social event; come and meet like-minded people, form new friendships and leave with a greater insight about the history and landscape of the Cotswolds.
The walking festival is very popular and we suggest you book early to ensure you get your first choice. So do not delay and book today as numbers on each walk are limited. Some walks involve transport and where this is indicated, the cost of travel is included. Click here to book walks.
Winchcombe is set in the heart of the beautiful Cotswolds, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. It has a timeless quality about it which makes it an attractive centre for walkers. A walled town in Saxon times, the town became prosperous as a result of the wool trade. The town has “Walkers are Welcome” status which means we will endeavour to make your stay and experience memorable.
