Harrow Health walks

Harrow Health Walks is a free programme of walks. It is for anyone who wants to improve their wellbeing and health, meet new people and explore Harrow’s hidden gems.

The scheme is part of the Ramblers Wellbeing Walks, England’s largest network of wellbeing walk schemes. They help thousands of people across the country lead a more active lifestyle. 

The walks are led by qualified leaders. You can walk at your own pace. Everyone is welcome regardless of age and fitness level.

Once you sign up, you do not need to book in advance. Turn up on the day. There’s a walk happening every day of the week and all over the borough.

Take a look at our Walk locations for a full list of walks in Harrow.

We recommend visiting the Ramblers Wellbeing Walks website for updates on walk dates in the event of cancellations.

You can find guidance on how to prepare for a walk on our walking information sheet.
