Alton Walking Festival, which is now in its 10th year, is a truly friendly
walking event, ideal for enthusiastic walkers, relaxed wanderers, and curious
explorers of all ages. The festival is the ideal opportunity for the
local community and visitors from further afield to meet likeminded people,
explore the Town and its surrounding villages and discover the superb Hampshire
countryside with its abundance of wildlife and rich cultural heritage.
The Festival hosts a wide variety of walks led by knowledgeable volunteer walk leaders, offering an extensive programme of routes to suit all abilities. Whether you’re looking for a shorter stroll, a day long hike or themed walks including Foraging, Nordic Poles, Bat Walks, Walking Challenges and Town Walks, there is definitely a walk for you.
