  3. North Wessex Downs Walking Festival
    Top class walking country - big skies, wooded valleys, stunning landscape – we have it all in the North Wessex Downs!  And our very first walking festival is in celebration of that.  June is the perfect time to get outside, stretch your legs, breathe deeply, venture into unknown territory – maybe even make new friends or learn a new skill along the way.  Most importantly, a time to enjoy this quintessential – and outstandingly beautiful - English countryside.
