Wheelchair users are welcome. Members of the Guild have devised a route that aims to minimize discomfort by using the smoothest surfaces, avoiding steep slopes, bumps, narrow pavements and narrow, busy thoroughfares. Please see our FAQs section for more information.
Walks can be arranged at any time of the year and the starting and finishing points can be planned to suit the convenience of the party.
Specially themed walks can also be arranged:
