People across Great Britain are invited to join the Ramblers in its free, annual Festival of Winter Walks, as they explore Britain at its wintry best

Ramblers groups are set to lead hundreds of free walks between 19th December 2015 and 3rd January 2016, for every ability, from those who fancy a shorter stroll to freshen up, to those after a longer ramble to burn off Christmas indulgences and start the New Year healthily.

WinterWalkRamblers chief executive, Benedict Southworth, said: 'Winter is one of the best times to go out for a walk. There’s something truly magical about putting on your hat and gloves, heading out with your loved ones and perhaps even being the first person to leave footprints in the snow.

'Our popular Festival of Winter Walks is our Christmas gift to the nation, so that everyone can enjoy the wonders of a winter walk. Our walks during the festival are free, fun, friendly and open to everyone, so wrap up warm and join us as we enjoy the season the way we know best, on our feet.'

The free event will offer shorter walks across England and Wales too. Walking for Health is England's largest network of health walk schemes and is run by the Ramblers, while Macmillan Cancer Support and Let’s Walk Cymru, run by Ramblers Cymru, is also set to lead free short walks for people to enjoy across the country.

The Festival will also cater for those who prefer to walk at their own leisure. This can be done by simply downloading a walk from Ramblers Route, an online library of Britain's favourite walks, with hundreds of walks available across Great Britain for everyone to enjoy.
