BOOTS were made for walking - and there’s no excuse not to stride out and have a go now details of one of the largest walking events on the UK mainland have been announced.
More than 230 themed walks and outdoor activities, ranging from challenging hikes across open countryside to relaxed city, town and village strolls, are on offer during The Walking and Outdoors Festivals 2011, co-ordinated by Visit Peak District.
Featuring themed walks on subjects ranging from history and heritage to water and wildlife, and outdoor activities from abseiling and cycling to Nordic walking and rock scrambling, the full programme spanning festivals from April to mid-October is now available in print and online.
The festivals will be launched at Buxton’s showpiece Pavilion Gardens on April 23 - St George’s Day - between 10am and 4pm.
