What we're about

Birmingham Ramblers are part of the Warwickshire Area of the Ramblers. Its aims are to promote walking, protect and promote access to open countryside, protect footpaths and organise walks which we hope all members can enjoy. We are an ethnically diverse group with a mature membership that is young at heart and welcoming to all. We have a great programme of walks for all abilities, holidays and social activities.

Birmingham Ramblers have their main walks on Sundays each week and Wednesdays every other week.

Our Sunday walks are by coach, and the cost per person is £12.00, irrespective of distance. During the summer months when the evenings are lighter we travel longer distances to reach the locations of the walks. The walks may be circular, but often are linear, with the coach dropping off and picking up at different places, making for a varied and interesting walking experience. (Many of our regular members do not belong to the Meetup group so the number shown to be attending is not a true reflection of actual attendees, which is always higher.) Take a look at our website for a full list of events: http://www.birminghamramblers.org.uk/ .

Birmingham Ramblers are part of the national charity The Ramblers' Association. Members of The Ramblers are entitled to walk with any local group throughout the country. The Birmingham group encourage and welcomes new walkers and potential new members may join us on up to three rambles before membership application is necessary for continued group activity. Membership application forms are available on request.

Meetup walkers who are not national Ramblers members must RSVP if they wish to attend one of our walks.
