About this event

Let's Get Together Summer Strolls from Newarke Houses, The Newarke

11am on Wednesday 17 August

Walk takes around 60 minutes at a steady pace, plus a refreshment opportunity afterwards (optional).

Meet outside the museum.

Join us for social walks this summer from Leicester's Museums! Enjoy a friendly group walk through pleasant city streets and parks - a chance to explore the city on foot and also find out what's on at Leicester Museums & Galleries.

Walks go from Newarke Houses on Wednesday 20 July and 17 August, with a different walk each time. We reveal some interesting facts along the way and finish with a light refreshment opportunity. Toilets are available in the museum at the start. Walks are short and suitable for most. Walking or wheeling, we hope you'll join us!

About the walk on Wednesday 17 August:

A garden-themed walk celebrating local green spaces, including those of Castle Gardens and Trinity Houses. We return to the museum for coffee in the garden. Afterwards, explore the 'Nature's Art: Gardens in Leicester and Beyond' exhibition at your leisure.

Walks are free to attend but please book as numbers are limited.

Book via Eventbrite or phone 0116 373 7589 when booking has opened. Please note our phone line is answered during office hours only (Monday to Friday, 9am-5.30pm), not at weekends or bank holidays.

If you are no longer able to attend, please cancel via Eventbrite or contact us by phone during office hours so we can allow others the opportunity to attend.

New Walkers

If you have not walked with Leicester City Council before we will ask you to complete our Walker Registration form in advance of the walk online or by phone. You will receive an email with a link to the online form in the days leading up to the event. You only need to do this once and can attend any of our walks thereafter (subject to booking a place on Eventbrite).

Dress for the weather

Remember to dress appropriately for the weather. Our group walks will go ahead in most weather. We recommend the following:

  • Comfortable sturdy footwear
  • Bring a raincoat or umbrella in case of rain
  • On cooler days wear appropriate layers and a coat/jacket
  • On warmer days a sunhat and sunscreen are recommended.
  • Please bring a bottle of water with you.

Group size

We can now take more people in each group, but we are still keeping our group sizes manageable to allow for social distancing, so that all our walkers feel comfortable attending the walk.

Covid-19 and group walks

Please do not attend a walk if you have symptoms of Covid-19. Instead, please follow the latest Government Guidance on taking a test.

During walks, we kindly ask walkers to respect the space of other walkers, as some people may prefer to maintain social distancing from others.

Self-guided routes

If you have been unable to book onto one of our group walks, or you prefer to explore with your family or friends, self-guided routes are available to download from the routes page of our Choose How You Move website or via the Go Jauntly smartphone app. For other ideas, do check out our Walk Inspiration page which features walk videos and quiz trails. Enjoy exploring Leicester this summer.
