The Berkshire Weekend Walkers is part of the Ramblers
(UK hiking association) and provides walks and social events in and around the UK county of Berkshire.
Our walking group is primarily for people of working age who can find time to get out for a walk at the weekend.
As there is already a group for people in their 20s and 30s in Berkshire, our membership is mainly made up of people in their 40s and older
but we welcome people of any age. See our FAQs page
to find out more about the other walking groups in Berkshire and how we fit in.
Our walks generally range in length from five to fifteen miles,
and each walk is graded in difficulty based on terrain and pace.
We generally have a walk every weekend, all year round, on either a Saturday or Sunday.
Some of these walks are organised jointly with other Ramblers groups in the area.
Walks normally include a picnic lunch stop (bring your own packed lunch) and often also include a stop at a country pub along the way,
providing refreshment and an opportunity to socialise more with your fellow walkers.
Our walking holidays have so far included long weekends in the Peak District, the South Downs, the Cotswolds, Shropshire, Cornwall and Bath. (See our
Our social events include such things as meals out, cinema trips, ten pin bowling,
museum trips and just going to the pub for a drink. Although these are not exactly walking related, they are a good way of getting to know the other members of the
group and they add another dimension to the Berkshire Weekend Walkers.
