What we're about

Walk Cambridge is an active walking club and social group, aimed at working age people living in Cambridge and the surrounding area. The group offers a varied programme of events throughout the year. From our weekly walks and monthly pub meets to weekends-away further afield and our annual awards dinner, there's something for everyone. So if you enjoy walking and would like to meet a friendly bunch of like-minded people, why not give us a try?

Note that we're part of the Ramblers Association, which means that everyone is welcome to attend a few events to see if they like it, then those who wish to continue are asked to join the Ramblers, a small annual subscription for membership of Britain's national walking charity.

National Young Ramblers Weekend in Cambridge

You may have heard that the National Young Ramblers weekend is coming to Cambridge this year (28-30 June 2019)! Young(er) Ramblers members (age being relative!) will be visiting from all over the country for a programme of walks, workshops and social events including a Saturday night ceilidh. Any Ramblers members interested in helping are invited to email [masked] to get involved - the NYR team (headed by Stag Walkers) have planned various routes with a choice of landscapes and walk grades to suit everyone but are still open to suggestions! Each of the walks will have two leaders, so you can team up with another volunteer to lead or back-mark a route. As well as joint leaders, helpers are also needed for other tasks such as shepherding attendees to the various walk startpoints and entertainment venues. For more information and to book for the event see www.nyrweekend.org.uk or the Facebook page at www.facebook.com/NationalYoungRamblers/
