With over 120 walks and events, the 2019 Suffolk Walking Festival is shaping up to be one of the most creative and ambitious festivals to date.
This year’s festival, which launches on Saturday 11 May at West Stow Country Park, truly has something for everyone: short strolls, gentle rambles, long hikes; family walks, history walks, nature walks; story-telling, art lessons, photography, boat trips, train rides, and rides in vintage military vehicles!
Once again, the festival will also include a challenge walk; this year it covers over 80 miles in just five days. The walk, which celebrates the 15th anniversary of the East Suffolk Line walks, will start at the most easterly point of Britain in Lowestoft and finish in Christchurch Park.
This year also sees the return of the Festival Fringe, a series of events that get you close to nature in the very heart of Suffolk’s countryside - you can experience a Woodland Night Safari, forage for your own cream tea, or sketch and photograph the landscape.
All walks are ticketed, and all tickets must be purchased in advance. To find out more and buy tickets visit www.suffolkwalkingfestival.co.uk
