Welcome to Brunel Walking Group!

Brunel Walking Group is for young(ish) people in the Bristol & Bath area who love getting outside on the weekend, enjoying our fantastic countryside and meeting like-minded people. You can find everything you need about us on this site.

About Us

Hello – if you’re New this is For You!

Wondering what Brunel Walking Group is all about?

Brunel is a thriving group with over 400 members. Our focus is on walking (obviously!) but we also put on lots of social events, including regular pub nights. Our walks range from easy Sunday strolls in the meadows around Bath to full-on yomps in the Brecon Beacons. We typically have several weekends away each year too.

We have two different programmes: one for members in their 20s and 30s and another for our members aged 40+ (“Brunel Plus”) – many walks and socials are joint ones for both age groups. You’re welcome to come along on a walk or two before joining to see if you enjoy it – but we’re sure you will!

If you want to find out more, click here for the basics and here to find out how we grade our walks (so you can choose one suitable for you) and to help you know what you need to take. If you still have questions please email the committee at brunelwalkinggroup@hotmail.com. Finally you can find us on Facebook too. Welcome to Brunel!

And the pretty face, don't be shy Josie! ☺️

oh and i've packed the map (just in case u need to refer)

I've been so remiss! I vowed to join your group back in... I want to say September/October? 😐... but one thing after another (not making excuses) has put my joining you all further and further back. But no more! My February clothing budget will go on a pair of proper hiking trousers (and not just the leggings I normally wear) and I swear I will be joining you asap!! 😄 Have a great walk tomorrow!! PS that's a very lovely hat! 😁 🎩
