Wellbeing walks

Wellbeing Walks is a developing programme of short, friendly group walks that can help you become and stay active.

The walks are led by trained volunteers. They are free to join, and everybody is welcome. Each walk will be different in length and may be more suited to some than others.

The programme has been developed with the support of the Ramblers and in partnership with local community groups and organisations.

Join a walk

North and east Cambridge

Chesterton Mindful Meander

  • Wednesday 22 May at 1pm
  • Meet on the terrace of Chesterton Pavilion, on Church Street
  • Booking is essential

Join our mindfulness facilitator and health walk leader to learn the basics of mindfulness before putting this into practice on a meander around Chesterton.

At a gentle pace, this walk will last no more than 60 minutes and is suited for people with walking aids. Return to the pavilion after the walk for a free refreshment and chat.

Other walks in north and east Cambridge

The following walk is held and led by the Social Prescribing Link workers and health and wellbeing coaches from Nuffield Road Surgery:

  • First Wednesday of the month

You do not have to be registered at any particular surgery to attend these walks.

South Cambridge

Trumpington wellbeing walk

  • Fridays at 11am from Trumpington Park and Ride (CB2 9FT)
  • Meeting point: The kiosk

This walk ranges from 50 to 70 minutes long.

It can be adapted to be a path walk, so that those using walking aids and pushchairs can join. However, if nobody with those needs is present, the walk will go through local woods and along the river. Suitable footwear is required for muddy paths.

There is a refreshment stop at the end of the walk as it passes the Trumpington Meadows community space. The café inside operates on a donation basis.

Please contact for more details. It is recommended that you email first prior to attending.

Booking a walk

You do not need to book in advance for any wellbeing walk. However, some walks are available to pre-book via Bookwhen.

Booking in advance will provide you with more information on meeting locations, and will also enable us to contact you should a last-minute cancellation take place.
