If you are new to walking or want to join a group of like-minded people then there are plenty of walking groups to choose from. The Ramblers' Association and their associated Suffolk walking groups all welcome visitors, so even if you are here for a short time you will be sure of a warm welcome. Local Ramblers' Association groups are located in Alde Valley, Bury St Edmunds, Ipswich, Newmarket, Stowmarket, Sudbury, Stour Valley and Waveney and District.

Improve your health by joining a 'Stepping Out In Suffolk Health Walks' in the Suffolk Coastal area or 'Stepping Out in Suffolk in Ipswich'. All walks are free and for everyone but especially those who may be recovering from illness or need to improve their exercise levels.
Walks can last for half an hour to one and a half hours and they are informal and sociable. You walk with trained leaders and at your own pace. Sensible footwear is recommended.
