The 2016 Walking Festival has now closed. Please check back in January for details of the 2017 Walking Festival.

Enjoy the Chesterfield area on foot, taking a stroll around the pretty village of Scarcliffe, looking at archaeology on the Hardwick Estate or following in the footsteps of murderers and their victims around Chesterfield town.

Take in some history as you meander through the industrial heritage of the Area. Come to Queen’s Park for a buggy walk and teddy bear’s pic-nic, have a go at Nordic walking, follow in miners’ footsteps along the Archaeological way, start your walk with a bacon butty, or sit down to tea and cakes before you set out.

If you’re looking for a challenge, try the Chesterfield Round Walk, a 34 mile trek through the countryside that surrounds the town. Or brave the Beast of Bolsover on a 20 mile circular hike or the new 23 mile Chatsworth Round. If that sounds all too much, there are shorter walks to try.

Most walks are free so there’s no excuse not to join us, and every excuse to have a pint at the end of several of them. All are led by a fully trained guide who knows the history, wildlife and the best countryside to walk through (as well as the best pubs to visit) in the beautiful Chesterfield landscape.
