Chesterfield Area Walking Festival

Enjoy the Chesterfield Area on foot, discovering our moorlands including Big Moor with its stone circles, searching out wildflowers in ancient woodlands, and going on a treasure hunt around Spital Cemetery.


11th May 2024 - 19th May 2024 12:00 am

Explore the highlights of the Chesterfield area on one of our many guided walks and with a vast range available there is something for everyone. Whether you prefer a gentle stroll through local parkland or fancy a more challenging 10-mile ramble along old railway track beds, the Chesterfield Walking Festival provides the perfect opportunity to get out and about.

There will be family walks so that the children can get involved, all the way up to the challenging Round Walk which boasts an impressive 34-mile route. The more experienced ramblers often opt to complete the whole distance, but there is the option to leave at any point along the way.

Walks take place across the whole area including Bolsover and some of the stunning countryside in North East Derbyshire. More details will be added as walks come in.

Most walks will be free or are taking donations for great causes and all are led by a fully trained guide who knows the history, wildlife and the best countryside to walk through (as well as the best pubs to visit) in the beautiful Chesterfield area landscape.

Booking opens in March 2024. All walks must be booked in advance.
