Get your walking boots on and get exploring the beautiful Chilterns countryside this autumn.

The Chiltern’s Walking Festival takes place from 6-21 October, and as usual the 16-day programme of over 50 themed guided walks and activities includes walks for everyone from experienced walkers to complete novices.

Led by experienced, local volunteer guides, the autumn programme includes seasonal highlights such as colourful beech woods, stories of former residents, glorious views and opportunities to learn new skills including map reading and Nordic walking. There are linear and circular walks involving trains, farms, landmarks and churchyards.

You don’t need previous experience, and each walk has a guide for the length, suggested level of fitness and terrain involved, so you’ll know what you’re getting yourself into before you set off.

Although most walks are free, you must pre-book. Go to for more details.
