Taking place over ten days each September, Sheffield Walking Festival presents a whole host of enjoyable walks for a range of abilities, with plenty to see and discover along the way. The festival celebrates all sides of Sheffield with over 30 routes of varying lengths and themes.
You can explore the city’s varied heritage and fascinating suburbs on urban strolls or venture out to Sheffield's dramatic borders that overlap with the stunning Peak District National Park, for something more challenging.
All the walks are FREE to attend, led by knowledgeable and experienced walk leaders. The 2022 edition of the festival will take place 10 – 18 September, with the full programme of walks due to be announced in early summer.
Sheffield Walking Festival is organised by the Sheffield Walking Forum in conjunction with The Outdoor City and brings together a host of local outdoor communities and national organisations, such as Sheffield & Rotherham Wildlife Trust, Peak District National Park Authority, Ramblers Association, Heritage Open Days and Walkers Are Welcome.
