Since its formation in 1931, our Club has been walking in the beautiful and varied countryside around Tunbridge Wells. We are affiliated to the Ramblers http://www.ramblers.org.uk/ (previously the Ramblers Association) and support them in their work, and sometimes have joint walks with the local group. This does not confer benefits on individual members. Those wishing to enjoy such benefits must join the Ramblers themselves. If you wish to read about the history of the club use the following link: History Page

 

 

 

 
     All walkers need to wear comfortable socks and walking boots with good gripping soles, and carry waterproof outer clothing and a drink.
     Experience is not necessary, but it might be best for new walkers to try a half day walk to begin with. Dogs are allowed on short leads only unless the walks leader has stated "no dogs" in the programme.  If dogs are taken they are the responsibility of the owner.

     In extreme weather conditions events may be cancelled, so checking with the walks organizer or membership secretary is advisable.

     Members of walking parties are advised to carry, if possible, their own First Aid requirements, and identification and a contact number in case of emergency, which can be put on a key tag obtainable from walks organizers and is free to all members.

 

     For a subscription of only £4.00 a year, you can enjoy any of the following activities:-

All day walks on Sundays

Wednesday Walks

Friday Walks

Longer Distance Walks

     Please note that a further subscription is required to join the Ramblers and walk with them.

The Walking Partnership

Tunbridge Wells Rambling Club has recently joined The Walking Partnership.

This partnership, supported by RWH Travel Limited, provides direct financial contributions to local walking groups to help with organising group walks, encouraging people to get out walking, helping to clear and improve footpaths, providing equipment to help walkers etc. Over the past 65 years, the company has given many millions of pounds to assist walking charities and conservation projects in Britain and the countries they visit on their worldwide holidays.

Now our group can benefit as well. RWH Travel Limited operates group walking and activity holidays in the UK and all around the world. Each holiday is accompanied by a qualified leader. Walking holidays are graded according to preferences and abilities and there is a full range from sightseeing to hutting holidays. Their website is www.rwhtravel.com, or you can call on 01707 386800 for more details or to order a brochure.

Remember when you book a holiday to quote the name of our group, and we will then receive a contribution of £10 per person on UK holidays, £20 per person on short haul holidays, and £30 per person on long haul holidays.
