Sat 6 - Sun 14 May Chesterfield Area Walking Festival


Enjoy the Chesterfield area on foot, taking a stroll around pretty villages, looking at flowers, listening to birds and searching out dragonflies and butterflies. Take in some history, take a break for a coffee, or even a tour of a vineyard, or finish off with a pint at the local pub.

If you’re looking for a challenge, try the Chesterfield Round Walk, a 34 mile trek through the countryside that surrounds the town. Or brave the Beast of Bolsover on a 20 mile circular hike. If that sounds all too much take an evening stroll of 5 or 6 miles or a family ramble of 2 or 3 miles.

Most walks are free so there’s no excuse not to join us. All are led by a fully trained guide who knows the history, wildlife and the best countryside to walk through (as well as the best pubs to visit) in the beautiful Chesterfield landscape.

Programmes will be available in January, when booking will open at Chesterfield Visitor Information Centre.
