Winchcombe Cotswolds Walking Festival 2019

Winchcombe Cotswolds Walking Festival

17-19 May 2019


Welcome to the tenth anniversary of the Winchcombe Cotswolds Walking Festival. Situated in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with an abundance of footpaths and history, we offer a great selection of 24 walks to suit all abilities plus 2 evening events.

Our walks, led by knowledgeable local guides visit a beekeeper, brewery, nature reserve, an imminent archaeological dig, research station, workshops, steam railway and a farm amongst others.  Come and learn about Sudeley Castle’s involvement in the Civil War, identify wild flowers or attempt the Winchcombe Way Challenge.

The three days is a very social event, come and meet like-minded people, form new friendships and leave with a greater insight about the history and landscape of the Cotswolds.

Our walking festival is a very popular event. We recommend you book early as places are limited and can fill quickly.

To celebrate our tenth walking festival we have created a limited edition T-shirt designed by a local artist.  To view and order your T-shirt please click here
