Walking Groups

Walking is really important for physical as well as mental health. Walking in a group can be even more beneficial due to the social interactions which occur.


Below you can see a selection of local walking group opportunities.  You can also find a list of recommended walks which is a work in progress but will hopefully expand in the future.


If you are out on a walk within our PCN boundary do keep an eye out for public benches and consider taking a photo to submit to our Public Benches Map.

Nordic Walking UK have a group based in Brockenhurst and undertake regular walks around the New Forest.  They have free taster sessions but a membership is required to attend their regular walks.  There is lots of information on their website including a list of upcoming walks.
