Other Ramblers Groups

Other Ramblers groups within the Inner London area.

Capital Walkers:
A friendly and varied group of people of all ages and interests. Walks vary in length from four to eighteen miles, and they also arrange Wednesday evening walks along London's waterways in summer.

Hammersmith, Fulham and Wandsworth Group:
Most members live around South West London, they organise walks ranging from 6 to 13 miles in length, at an easy to moderate pace.

Hampstead Group:
A friendly group, walks from five to twenty miles at an easy to fast pace. Walks every Sunday and most Saturdays, occasional mid-week walks, New Years break and week long holiday in Summer.

Kensington Chelsea and Westminster Ramblers:
Walks vary in length, the majority of their walks are eight to fourteen miles. In summer most walks are in the country within one hour's train journey. Routes avoid roads as far as possible, using footpaths and bridleways. In winter more walks are in or near London, some with a cultural interest.

London Strollers:
The London Strollers is a new walking group welcoming all Londoners from our diverse city. We organise accessible walks for all members of the community whether young or old. Families are particularly welcome.

Metropolitan Walkers:
A group targeted to those in their 20's to early 40's. They organise five walks a week from evening strolls through London’s parks to hiking Ben Nevis “the hard way”. Most walks end in a pub, they also organise weekends away and social events. Members of the metropolitan walkers also organise the Capital Walkers, an initiative aimed at people at the top end of the Metropolitan Walkers age range.

North East London Ramblers:
Walks vary from eight to thirteen miles. Most walks are on Saturdays with some Sundays, and are attended by from twelve to twenty-five people.

Southbank Group:

The Walking Partnership

Blackheath Ramblers has recently joined The Walking Partnership. This partnership, supported by RWH Travel Limited, provides direct financial contributions to local walking groups to help with organising group walks, encouraging people to get out walking, helping to clear and improve footpaths, providing equipment to help walkers etc. Over the past 65 years, the company has given many millions of pounds to assist walking charities and conservation projects in Britain and the countries they visit on their worldwide holidays. Now our group can benefit directly.

RWH Travel Limited operates group walking and activity holidays in the UK and all around the world. Each holiday is accompanied by a qualified leader, so you can leave all the organising to them and just enjoy meeting like minded people. Walking holidays are graded according to preferences and abilities and there is a full range from sightseeing to hutting holidays.

Remember when you book to quote the name of our group, and we will then receive a contribution of £10 per person on UK holidays, £20 per person on short haul holidays, and £30 per person on long haul holidays. If you have already booked a holiday which you have not yet taken, please nominate Blackheath Ramblers in connection with your existing booking, and we’ll still receive funding. This extra funding could really make a difference to us!
