Booked Walks

Booked Walks - Available throughout the year


Booked Walks can take place throughout the year. For those organisations and groups planning bookings in 2024 please contact the Booking Secretary   via email or call 07947 924494 to discuss your requirements. Alternatively you can place your Booking online using the "Book Now" button on your selected walk.

Please note that the minimum number of walkers we will consider for a Booked Walk is 4 adults and all walks are subject to availability of suitable Guides for the subject matter and the size of your group.

Wheelchair users are welcome. Members of the Guild have devised a route that aims to minimize discomfort by using the smoothest surfaces, avoiding steep slopes, bumps, narrow pavements and narrow, busy thoroughfares. Please see our FAQs section for more information.

Walks can be arranged at any time of the year and the starting and finishing points can be planned to suit the convenience of the party.

Specially themed walks can also be arranged:

Hauntings and Horrors

Elgar in Hereford

Alfred Watkins 1821 - 1935

Building Hereford Through the Ages - architecture in the historic city centre

Please see below for more information about these themed walks.

A few days notice is usually required and we normally allocate one guide per ten people. To enquire or to make your booking please contact our Booking Secretary (see Contact Us page).

Charges - £6 per person. For parties of schoolchildren the charge is £1 per child and £6 for accompanying adults. Please note that we can only allow assistance dogs on our walks.

Coach parties can unload near the west front of the Cathedral where the group can be met. The coach must leave immediately after unloading - for example to the car park at Merton Meadow.
