Wild Walks for Wellbeing

Thursdays - Improve your fitness and mental health through walking

Discover new places and make new friends!

To access the Wild Walks for Wellbeing group and join their regular walks, please find out first when the next taster walk is by contacting Andrew Scott, Volunteer Walk Leader: wellbeingwildwalks@gmail.com / 07548320164

  • A taster walk will be around 60 minutes (2 miles)
  • The walk will finish with a refreshment stop and a chance to rest and socialise - Please bring money for refreshments.
  • After the walk we’d like your feedback on the walk and to discuss attending regularly

The group meets on Thursday afternoons (between 12.30 – 1.30pm and finish by 5pm) at Trinity's Garden or at the Wesley Chapel, Bristol City Centre. Walks are usually between 60 – 90 minutes. Some walks involve travel by bus or train to the start and we like to end with refreshments somewhere.
