The Farnham Walking Festival 2019 was a great success. It saw many walkers enjoying getting out and about in and around Farnham this spring.

A big thank you to our main sponsor, Abbeyfield Wey Valley Society and to Southern Co-Op for their support.

There will be some walks offered before next year so keep an eye on the website for dates.

Walking Festival 2020

This popular two week long walking festival will be back in 2020. The provisional dates are from 17 May to 6 June 2020 (this may be subject to change).

General information about the Walking Festival

The Walking Festival is organised by Farnham Town Council and a team of volunteer walking enthusiasts. The two-week long event includes over 30 guided walks ranging from half-mile strolls to 14-mile hikes.

The walks are free to join.

About the walks

There are a number of walks which cater for a range of interests and walking abilities.

Previous walks have explored:

  • The town centre and its historic buildings
  • Areas of Farnham Heath which are not usually open to the public
  • Farnham’s archaeology
  • The Swithun’s Way
  • Rowledge through the ages
  • Farnham’s WW2 defences
  • Badshot Lea from 1851 to present day
  • Farnham’s brewing history, and lot’s more!

The great variety of walks means there is something for all ages, fitness levels and walking abilities. There are also walks suitable for families.

Each walk is led by an expert in their field. They take you on a journey of discovery and share their knowledge about local history, heritage and archaeology through to art, nature and Farnham’s industrial past.

How to book for 2020

The bookings will be managed by Farnham Walking Festival volunteers. More information about the walks for next year will be available in March/ April 2020.
