Saturday, 1st & Sunday 2nd June, 2019

Discover Newtown and its beautiful countryside during two days of fun, sociable walking. Learn about all the new footpaths now available in the Newtown area. There are plenty of walks to try, from family strolls to something more strenuous. They are:

Guided walks - for all abilities, from 2 to 14 miles. Foraging walks featuring edible treats, history and heritage walks, pub walks, dog walks, town walks, Welsh language walks, accessible walks and a stroll ‘n sing walk featuring a picnic

Treasure hunts – A nature treasure hunt and a Newtown heritage treasure hunt for all the family. Pick up a leaflet and do them in your own time.

Self-guided walks – Download a walk from our web site or pick up a leaflet, grab a friend and off you go whenever you like.

All walks are FREE.

No need to book. Just arrive on the day at our walk hub at least 10 minutes before the walk.

All walks start from our hub at the Robert Owen Museum – High St & Broad St, Newtown.

If they are very popular we may have to limit numbers so first come, first served. Email us at if you have questions.

No matter what the weather the leaders will be at the start of the walk 10 minutes before the allotted time. They will make the final decision whether the weather is suitable for their walk.

Please wear appropriate clothing and footwear. Most of the walks include off road trails in the countryside and could be muddy. There are hills involved.

Always carry water. Bring additional drinks and snacks if appropriate.

Bring a mobile phone if you have one.

All leaders are trained in walk leading and first aid and will carry first aid kits. Obey the countryside code and your leader’s instructions.

For the dog walks, please bring well behaved dogs, leads and poo bags.

The Walking Festival is supported by Newtown and Llanllwchairn Town Council, Powys County Council, Skipton Building Society, West Brom Building Society, Tesco and Bryn Walking


Enjoy yourself.
