Our organised walks are relaxed, friendly and a great chance to meet new people.

At each of our walks, there are toilets and benches along the route. Many of our walks also finish at cafes for social opportunities.

Each group meets 10 minutes before the walk starts and leaves promptly. Walks typically last 30-90 minutes. No specialist equipment needed, just wear clothes and shoes comfortable for walking.

Hampstead Heath Leisurely Group - Restarted 12 April 2021

This walk is suitable for people living with health conditions or mobility issues. Mobility aids welcome. Suitable for slower walkers. There is a sister walk (Hampstead Heath challenging walk) that goes from Hampstead Heath overground station at the same time.

Hampstead Heath Challenging Group - Restarted 12 April 2021 

Every Monday (except bank holidays), meet at 9.50am from Hampstead Heath Overground station. 

Bookings are no longer required, simply turn up to the meeting place. 

This walk goes across the Heath following a different route each week, often diverging from the main paths, so be prepared for uneven ground and walking uphill. After about an hour, the group stops for refreshments at Kenwood or Parliament Hill Café, occasionally venturing further afield to Golders Hill Park. Participants can either make their own way home or join the walk leaders to return by a shorter route to the starting point opposite Hampstead Heath Overground station. Please wear shoes comfortable for walking in and bear in mind that the Heath can be muddy. You don’t need anything special but avoid open-toed shoes and smooth soles.
