No matter whether you were a stroller, roamer, shuffler, moocher or a marcher the Greater Manchester Walking Festival (GM Walking Festival ) had something for you.

Delivered by GM Moving, in partnership with Transport for Greater Manchester (TfGM) with support from local walking groups and charities, the 2019 Festival ran from Wednesday 1st to Friday 31st May.

Back bigger and better for it’s fifth year, it offered 400 free guided walks exploring towns, cities, the countryside, canals, riversides and parks across Greater Manchester.

The aim of this year’s event was to encourage residents of Greater Manchester to rediscover their local area, reconnect with their friends and neighbours and to get out and about more. Walks catered for all abilities and interests, from a romp around Alkington Woods, Middleton to a scenic wheelchair-friendly rambles along the Bridgewater Canal and much, much more.

A very big thank you to all our partners, supporters and volunteers who made the Festival such a success. And of course, a huge thank you for everyone who joined us on one of our walks.

We’re now busy planning next year’s festival, and we’d love your feedback and ideas about what you’d like to see included in 2020, so please get in touch!
