The Evesham Walking Festival, which takes place in Evesham Vale and the North Cotswolds from June 26 to 30, has expanded this year to include 23 walks.

All of the walks must be pre-booked; check this link for the latest on whether walks are fully booked, cancelled, and the fee associated with them. Each walk has its own link with information on the meeting point, length of the walk, whether children or dogs are permitted, times, and a map.

The event kicks off with an 11.5-mile walk at Snowshill. There are three other walks on the first day: Kemerton, Kiftsgate and Bretforton.

The 40-mile four-day trek that is the Wychavon Way Linear Walk starts on June 27. Other walks that day are: Evesham, Barton, Hinton, Stanway and Cleeve Prior. On June 28, walks include: Croome, Hampton Ferry, Pershore, Lower Moor and Ashton Under Hill.

On June 29, there are two walks – alongside the penultimate day of the four-day linear walk – Alcester and Ebrington. Both of the walks on the final day, Stow on the Wold and The Lenches are fully booked.
