This year the Farnham Walker Walkfest will be held at the same time as the Farnham Town Council (FTC) Walking Festival in May (14 May - 5 June).

We are linking with and liaising with FTC to offer the best joint festival we can.

Farnham Walker offers our friends a number of walks over this period. Feel free to pick any you want from this list. FTC will be offering other walks during the same period. 

All bookings for Farnham Walker Walkfest walks should be on


Walks for other FTC events have their own booking arrangements.
