Our walks are easy, fun and free. What's more, with more than 50 walks taking place each week, there's bound to be one near you.

Come along and enjoy the fresh air, meet new people and take in the sights of Glasgow's parks and gardens. ​​​

Lasting around an hour, our walks are easy, sociable and most of all good fun. Our walk leaders are on hand to encourage you to go at a pace you’re comfortable with and make sure you get the most out of your walk. All abilities are welcome, please bring a buddy if you need one to one support.

Please note while some of our walks have returned, we are only in pilot stage at the moment and walkers can only attend via invite. If you have any questions or are interested in joining the walking programme please do get in touch and we can advise on best option available. We can be contacted on 0141 287 3831, 07827305361 or email walking@glasgowlife.org.uk 

We look forward to welcoming everyone back; existing walkers and new walkers, but for now with the current guidelines, the safety of everyone involved is our top priority.

 

We also train and support organisations to establish their own walks for members. This allows organisations the freedom to offer walks at a time and day that they know will work for the groups involved. Please call 0141 287 0963 or email walking@glasgowlife.org.uk for more information.

Themed Walks

If you are interested in finding out more about the city’s culture, art, architecture, wildlife and history come and join us on one of our FREE themed walks across Glasgow.

Our Themed Walks programme is currently on hold due to the recent enhanced level 4 restrictions, but will be reviewed regularly in line with any easing of these. All walks will have some adaptations to allow for social distancing measures to be implemented and ensure these are compliant with COVID-19 guidelines.

Walking During Periods of Social Distancing

We know this is an anxious time for many, and we encourage everyone to keep active when they can and if they feel well enough to do so. The secret to maintaining some level of physical activity is to use every opportunity to be active and doing some of this outdoors is fantastic for boosting your mental wellbeing as well as getting a break from being stuck in the house.

Please follow the latest advice if heading out for a walk from our partners at Paths For All

Strength & Balance Activities

If you're not currently able to walk as much or as far as you would like, our friends at Paths for All have designed a set of resources to help you maintain strong muscles and bones which, in turn, help you to stay active and independent in your everyday life. You can do these exercises at home using their useful Strength & Balance workout:
