This year’s Suffolk Walking Festival launches on 14 May 2022 with over 70 guided walks spanning over two weeks, that will take you across some wild countryside, outstanding landscapes, rolling hills, forests, and coastal beauty spots. With lots of weekend, evening and family walks, the programme has accessible, short, medium, long distance walks, and challenging walks.

There is something for everyone!

This year’s programme will discover a dragon in the iconic Stour Valley, explore Hawkedon’s horizons through idyllic green villages, celebrate 75 years at RSPB, one of the most special places in Suffolk, tell stories of smugglers and shipping routes at Dunwich Heath, and spend time watching Sweep the sheepdog, in action managing Orford Ness Nature Reserve’s very own herd of rare breed sheep.

You can tune into bats on a twilight safari through ancient woodland at Priestley Wood, brush up your whittling skills and make damper bread over an open fire in the woods at Thornham Walks, and get crafty at Brandon Country Park finding willow, sticks, leaves and rushes in the woods to make and keep your own creations.

The festival kicks off at Clare Country Park on Saturday 14 May with refreshments and 2 Launch Jaunts. It then runs every day until 29th May.
