What we're about
WELCOME to the CAPITAL WALKERS!
If you want to keep fit, make friends, and escape the City for a while, or you want to explore London’s historic streetscapes and parks, then Capital Walkers is for you!. We no longer advertise our walks on this Meetup page but you can find our full rolling walks programme on our website (see below).
Capital Walkers is part of the Ramblers and was set up by Londoners who love getting out into the countryside as well as the lesser known parts of the city.
The group is aimed at people aged 40+.
Everyone is welcome: you don't need to be a member to try us out and most walks have at least one or more new people on them.
- Are free and led by unpaid volunteers
- Start and end within easy reach of public transport (we often get a day return train ticket out of the city)
- Are open to everyone, without charge, in order to try out the group.
Our general rule is that you can attend up to three walks after which time we ask that you take out a membership of The Ramblers (see further details below).
To see more of what we're about - our website is a good place to start.
and check us out on Social Media:
We are run entirely by volunteers and have 400 members (most of whom are not members of the meetup group) and walks usually can have between 10 and 40 people on them on average. If you enjoy walking please do come along and perhaps consider leading a walk or maybe organising a social. You don't need to be an expert and any contribution you make will have an impact and keep the group successful!
If you decide to walk with us on a regular basis then we ask you to join The Ramblers. Single annual membership is £35.00 a year (as at October 2017), with benefits that include a 15% discount at Cotswold Outdoor, a High Street and Online retailer selling outdoor clothing and equipment.
You will also be part of an organisation which represents and campaigns for the interests of all walkers in Britain. You will be directly contributing to protecting and expanding the places people can walk and promoting walking for health and pleasure.
