Suffolk Walking Festival

The 14th Suffolk Walking Festival launches on 14th May 2022 with over 70 guided walks over two weeks over some wild countryside, outstanding landscapes, rolling hills, forests, and coastal beauty spots.

With lots of weekend, evening and family walks, the programme has accessible, short, medium, long distance walks, and challenging walks. There is something for everyone! 

This year’s programme will discover a dragon in the iconic Stour Valley, explore Hawkedon’s horizons through idyllic green villages, celebrate 75 years at RSPB, one of the most special places in Suffolk, tell stories of smugglers and shipping routes at Dunwich Heath, and spend time watching Sweep the sheepdog, in action managing Orford Ness Nature Reserve’s very own herd of rare breed sheep.

The festival kicks off at Clare Castle Country Park on Saturday 14th May with refreshments and 2 Launch Jaunts. It then runs every day until 29th May.

Tickets are on sale from early March.
