Winchester has a great range of walks to enjoy.

We are now able to travel further to enjoy time outside, with no restrictions on how far we can go to get to the countryside, National Parks and beaches in England. Many of the walks in and around Winchester can be accessed by bike or on foot.

Have a look at the self guided walks in Winchester here – great for the whole family to enjoy. If you are parking in South Winchester Park & Ride take a walk along the Viaduct Way into the city. Make this a circular walk and enjoy the Keats trail out to St Cross to complete your route.

Why not try a route you haven’t walked before? Somewhere off the beaten track?

Do you live in Oliver’s Battery or Stanmore? Take a walk along the last 3 miles of the Clarendon Way and head into town avoiding the main roads

For a longer walk explore Farley Mount. Follow the Clarendon Way as it takes you out of the city all the way to Farley Mount – explore the various footpaths and routes around the area. Why not try the circular route at Farley Mount.

A popular walk from Tichborne to Easton is the The Grey-Roosevelt Centenary Walk. This six mile route takes in some beautiful scenery and wildlife but you will have to retrace your steps to get back to the beginning.

Why not explore Old Winchester Hill or Beacon Hill Nature Reserve? Grab your walking boots and head out and explore parts of the South Downs National Park off of the main track which you have never seen before?

Please remember when heading outside for exercise to follow the Government guidelines on social distancing and remain alert. Stay 2 metres apart and do not gather in groups of more that two, unless it is with members of your own household or for other specific reasons set out my law. Remember to stay alert when you leave your home.
