The booking for the event will close before the event takes place, often on the afternoon of the last working day prior to the event.  There may still be tickets available; unless this event shows either that booking is essential or that tickets are “sold out” you may still be able to attend simply by turning up on the day.  However, do note that places are always allocated on a first come first served basis because of number restrictions.

Please dress for changeable weather, wear walking boots or shoes and bring drinks and snacks. Whilst well behaved dogs on leads are welcome, please take note of any specific instructions by the walk leader and the concerns of others.  If you have not already booked online, please pay on arrival.
