How it works

The Let’s Walk Bristol Festival is all about getting outdoors, enjoying nature, walking, exploring and strengthening community. It’s suitable for everyone and is the perfect way to discover more of Bristol and the amazing surrounding countryside.

The Festival weekend kicks off on Friday afternoon with a walk around Bristol Harbourside. Many of the guides leading Saturday’s walks will be there, so it’s a chance to meet them and other walkers and take in this lively, re-generated historic port.

On Saturday there’s a wide range of walks and difficulty levels including some of the best Bristol city walks and stunning countryside trails, all led by experienced insured guides. Finish the day at one of our two Harbourside party venues, enjoy delicious food and listen to local Bristol musicians.

On Sunday there’s a Festival celebration in Ashton Court with more music, street food and a marquee. It’s the registration hub for a wide range of walks including the Bristol bridges challenge, a leisure trail, family adventure trail and some amazing Clifton circular walks all crossing Brunel’s suspension bridge.

Pre-book your tickets through our secure online booking system. Closer to the Festival we’ll email you pre-event information including what to wear, what to bring, how to get to your walks and health and safety guidance.

There’s measures in place to manage the risks from Covid-19 and if it’s necessary to cancel for any reason including bad weather you will receive a full refund.
