Get Walking Gateshead

Walking can improve your health, your happiness, and if you join one of our groups it will give you the chance to explore the outdoors, get to know your local area and meet new people! 

All of our walks are part of the accredited ‘Walking for Health’ scheme.  We also offer Walk Leader training for volunteers who wish to lead walks in Gateshead.
More details about these walks and more can be found at www.walkingforhealth.org.uk/walkfinder/north-east/get-walking
