Oxford City Health Walks

A walk leader leads a health walk in Oxford City.

Health Walks

Walking is a fantastic way to build exercise into your day, meet new people and take in the great outdoors.

There are many beautiful parks and open spaces waiting to be explored in Oxford, and to help you along the way we have set up our our Oxford Health Walks programme.

Whether you are a keen walker or you are considering starting some gentle exercise, why not join our walk leaders on a walk around the city, and 'Let the Good Times Stroll'.

Our walks are taken at a gentle pace and lead by qualified Walking for Health leaders. Walks typically last 30-60 minutes and cover 1-3 miles. Most walks finish at a local cafe to give you a chance to catch up with other walkers over a hot drink.

All walks are free with no need to book. Just turn up to the meeting point at the time listed below. No specialist walking gear needed, just wear shoes and clothes comfortable for walking.

Mobility aids welcome!
