Led walks

Walking, whether part of our daily routine or a way to explore the local area, is a simple way to help stay healthy.


By moving around every day, we will achieve some of the changes that are necessary for a healthier future. What's more, Hillingdon is a great place to do it


Walk Hillingdon is your local Walking for Health scheme. We provide free walks designed to allow you to walk at your own pace to increase your health and wellbeing.

Our walks take place Monday to Saturday across the borough. Our grading system helps you choose a suitable walk and supports you to progress to higher graded walks as your fitness improves. Our walks range from 30 minutes to 90 minutes.

Every walk is led by a trained walk leader whose role is to make sure the health walk is safe and that the walker's experience is a positive one.

The walks are a great way to meet people and explore the wonderful green spaces in Hillingdon so please make sure you wear suitable footwear for off road walking. Accredited scheme - Walking for health

Something for everyone

There are many great places to walk in Hillingdon including the Hillingdon trail and nature walks.

Our Saturday striders, part of the Walk Hillingdon Programme provide longer led walks while Nordic walking offers a whole body workout whilst enjoying our green spaces.

There are also easy ways of increasing the amount of everyday walking you do:

  • Plan yours or your family walk routes, track your progress to see how may miles you have walked.
  • Have you considered getting off the bus or tube a couple of stops early and walking the rest of the journey? Or would you like to fit walking into your busy day? TfL - Walking »
