No matter whether you’re a stroller, roamer, shuffler, moocher or a marcher the Greater Manchester Walking Festival  (GM Walking Festival ) has something for you. Back bigger and better for the fifth year, it runs from Wednesday 1st to Friday 31st May, and offers 400 free guided walks exploring towns, cities, the countryside, canals, riversides and parks across Greater Manchester.

In 2019 the aim of the event is 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 cater for all abilities and interests, from a romp around Alkington Woods, Middleton to a scenic wheelchair-friendly ramble along the Bridgewater Canal.

The Festival is delivered by GM Moving, in partnership with Transport for Greater Manchester (TfGM) with support from local walking groups and charities.
