Walking in a group is a great way to start walking, make new friends and stay motivated.
There are lots of different walking groups in Bristol. They cater for all abilities so you don’t need to worry about being out of your depth.
Ramblers organises group walks for health, leisure and as a means of getting around for people of all ages, backgrounds and levels of fitness. Its website has details of many locally organised walks in towns and cities, as well as the countryside.
We’ve checked and there are literally scores of groups operating within a 5 mile radius of Bishopston. The ten nearest are:-
- Lockleaze and Horfield Strollers

Walking to school helps children to engage with their local community, develop wider social networks, greater spatial awareness and improved road sense.
