Urban celebration of walking
There’s still time to take part in the month-long Bristol Walk Fest taking place this May with a ‘one stop shop’ website of walking in Bristol featuring an impressive variety of walking routes, groups, information and competitions.
With nearly 100 walks showcasing the Best of Bristol for everyone to enjoy on their own or with others, there is something for all ages, interests and abilities across the city.
Bristol City Council is also marking the occasion with the launch of more than 60 curated Bristol walks on the Go Jauntly app. Based on your location, simple photo guides lead you around urban areas and surrounding wildlife, from green spaces to historical sites to community gardens.
Some of the new walks available for 2021 include:
• A Black History Tour in Bristol - Discover some local black history on this wander through the Montpelier and St Pauls neighbourhoods in Bristol.
• Bristol Wanderlust Walk - A stroll through Bristol talking in some of the best instagrammable spots in the city.
• Bristol Street Art Tour - Explore some of the amazing, colourful street art of Bristol. Includes pieces by Banksy and many other well-known artists.
The new website also includes details on 35 varied walking activity groups and organisations based in the city, personal walking challenge suggestions that can be done from your doorstep and a host of interesting features including Bristol’s Greenground Map.
