‘The walker’s capital of the Cotswolds’

Winchcombe is described as the walker’s capital of the Cotswolds in the 2019 Britain’s Outdoor Capitals guide. ‘The perfect English walking town surrounded by stunning countryside’.   Winchcombe is a ‘Walkers are Welcome’ town, part of a network of over 100 towns in Britain. We actively promote walking in the area and are constantly looking to improve the walking  experience.  Many of the town’s businesses support  ‘Winchcombe Walkers are Welcome’  efforts in promoting the area and reading endorsements from national media proves that together we are succeeding.

If you are visiting Winchcombe and want to explore, try our downloadable self-guided walks ranging from 2 miles to 13.5 miles.  If you prefer a guided walk, visit for walks led by the Cotswold Voluntary Wardens.
