Our 2018 Suffolk Walking Festival has been and gone! And wasn't it amazing! We met more people and walked more miles than ever before. We've calculated we took a phenomenal 24 million steps in 3 weeks. Wow! Thank you to everyone who came on a walk - you made the festival very special indeed. And thank you to all our partners, colleagues and the many volunteers who come up with ideas and lead walks - without you there simply would not be a festival. Thank you.
In 2018 we had walks for everyone: we kick started the festival with a Dawn Chorus Walk and ended the same day with a magical Twilight Safari. We went Nordic Walking, discovered the amazing history of Suffolk's Wool Towns and had a go at GeoCaching. There were short strolls to long hikes and everything in between.
We also launched the Walking Festival Fringe, a series of exciting and immaginative events that got close to nature in the very heart of the countryside.
The Festival launched at St Peter's Brewery back on Saturday May 12th - thank you to all at St Peter's for all your hard work and for making the launch such fun.
We look forward to seeing and walking with you on the 2019 Suffolk Walking Festival on Saturday 11th May - Sunday 2nd June 2019!
