Bristol Ramblers is one of the largest walking groups in the country. We arrange around 300 walks each year, ranging from short to long, from rural to urban. Forthcoming walks are shown in the box on the left, and you can find more detail by clicking on the walk title. Our full walks programme can be accessed via the Walks pages on the site. That section of the site also provides advice: what to wear, what to carry, categories of walk.
You would be very welcome to try two or three walks before deciding whether to join the Ramblers. You can join via the box on the right.
We are part of the national Ramblers, Britain's walking charity. Information about contacts is set out on the About Us pages.

2014 coach trips - 15 June and 14 September
Bristol's Walking Festival 2014
The UK’s largest urban walking festival takes place in Bristol from Saturday 26 April until Monday 26 May 2014.
Now expanded to take place over a month, the festival offers more than 150 guided walks available throughout the city and beyond on themes such as leisure and learning, health, arts and creativity and active travel. New walks for 2014 will include opportunities for speed dating, sketching, business networking and learning about the suffragettes and female campaigners. Many of the walks will be led by Brsitol Ramblers.
More information about the walking festival, including the festival programme, is available at www.bristolwalkingfestival.co.uk.
It is with great sadness that we record the death of Alan Burton, who made an immense contribution to the Group over many years.
Alan's ashes will be scattered on the Dorset coast on Thursday 22 May. A free coach will leave Fishponds at 9.30am and the bus/coach stop in Millennium Square (behind @Bristol) at 9.45am, to drive to Charmouth. It will return to Bristol at about 6pm. The programme at Charmouth will depend a bit on the weather, but it is intended that there should be a short walk.
