We are absolutely delighted to announce that the 5th walking festival programme is now live! Running from Saturday 18 May to Sunday 02 June 2019, the programme includes over 70 guided walks, events and activities covering the whole of the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) stretching from Oxfordshire through Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire into Hertfordshire.
Whatever your age group, interest, level of fitness or mobility, the new programme is designed to appeal to all, offering a huge variety of walks. It also includes a wide range of interests from specialist themed walks, opportunities to discover lively stories and scenic landscapes associated with the Chilterns. Some walks even offer the prospect of sampling local food and drink, others provide ‘have-a-go’ sessions or chances to learn about the area’s wildlife, history and colourful characters.
To give you a taster of what is available just have a look at our opening Spring programme walks, from Classic Chilterns, Midsomer Murders Revealed, Mindful Wellbeing Nordic Walk, Bluebells and Blacksmiths to Living History, there is something to please everyone!
Each walk is guided by an experienced leader who knows the area well and is keen to share stories of the people and places that have shaped the countryside.
Chilterns Conservation Board People and Society Officer Annette Venters said "The Chilterns Walking Festival is now a firm favourite with both tourists and residents: each year we see more walks, more guides, more local business involvement, and above all growing numbers of participants. There’s already been lots of interest, so please do book early to avoid disappointment.”

We hope to see you there!
