Please note the following

The number of attendees shown on Meetup is not reflective of how many will turn up. We advertise our walks in a number of places and you will find a good sized group of walkers on each walk.

At the meeting point we don't hold up a Meetup sign however you will recognise us as we really do look like a group of walkers in their 20s to early 40s and any of the walkers there can confirm they are Met Walkers.

The organiser identified on Meetup is usually different from the actual walk leader. The walk leader is identified on the description of the walk and contact details are provided.

Registered charity[masked]. Metropolitan Walkers is a part of the Ramblers - Britain's walking charity.
