Alton's Autumn Walking Festival 2021

Welcome to this year's Autumn walking festival which will run from Thursday 14th October –  Sunday 17th October 2021.

With the help of local walk leaders and walk Alton we have compiled 4 days of walking ranging from 2 miles - over 9 miles everyday.

Please note:

  • All walks MUST be booked in advance. Please go to to book. Please only book walks you can definitely attend. 

  • Each booking is for 1 person ONLY. If you are booking for more than one person please complete with their name and contact details.

  • Please do not attend your walk if you are experiencing Covid-19 symptoms.

  • If you touch gates and stiles wash your hands as soon as you can. We recommend carrying alcohol-based hand sanitiser and gloves.

  • Wear suitable clothing and footwear for the conditions.

  • Bring your own food and plenty of water.

  • Please bring your own alcohol-based hand sanitiser, face covering and basic first aid kit. We recommend that the walk leader also brings a first aid kit, but for minor incidents it may be better to use your own.

  • Please arrange your own transport. All travel costs (buses, trains and parking are at the expense of the walker.

  • Many walks are in the countryside/woodland so rest stops for toilets may not be possible.

  • Please arrive 15 minutes before the start if your walk.

Alton Town Council would like to say thank you to all the committed local walk leaders who have put together a programme to promote, share and develop walks in and around Alton.
