Garstang walking festival

Saturday 2 - Sunday 10 May 2020

Nine days of walks for everyone to explore Garstang and its beautiful countryside surroundings. 

Welcome to the Garstang Walking Festival, coordinated by the Friends of Garstang Walking Festival and supported by Wyre Council. Every year in May we put together nine days of walks for all ages and abilities so that you can experience the best of spring time in the countryside around Garstang, the Forest of Bowland and the Fylde Plain.

There are over 40 walks to choose from including a three day challenge, Nordic walking, one hour health walks, children’s activities, easy rambles, evening walks, dog friendly trails and everything in between.

The Friends of Garstang Walking Festival is a group of dedicated volunteers who do a fantastic job of coordinating the event and lead many of the walks alongside Wyre’s countryside rangers. As well as the chance to get outdoors and enjoy some fantastic scenery, our walk leaders are experts in the natural environment and local history – you’ll be amazed by what you learn.

All walks are graded from easy to hard so whatever your ability, there's something to choose from.
