Strap on your boots and explore Sheffield on foot!

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 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.

This year the festival will take place 6 - 15 September 2024 and will once again run alongside Heritage Open Days. Led by knowledgeable and experienced walk leaders, all the walks are free to attend, but you must be registered.

The 2024 Walk Programme will be announced in early summer 2024.

Sheffield Walking Festival is organised by the Sheffield Walking Forum in conjunction with Welcome to Sheffield and brings together a host of local outdoor communities and national organisations, such as the National Trust, Peak District National Park AuthorityRamblers Association, Heritage Open Days and Walkers Are Welcome.
