Tonbridge & Malling Ramblers – group walks

Tonbridge & Malling Ramblers logo

For full details see the link to Upcoming Walks at The Tonbridge & Malling Ramblers website

Our friendly group is one of 13 Ramblers groups in Kent and part of the national Ramblers walking organisation. We explore the beautiful countryside of Tonbridge and Malling and surrounding areas.

You don’t have to be a Ramblers member to try out a couple of walks with us, to help you decide if you’d like to join. Advance booking is not required; you can just turn up on the day. If you are new to our walks, it’s a good idea to contact the walk leader beforehand to check that their walk will suit you. Always check our website for latest details, including any late changes due to weather or other conditions.

We look forward to welcoming you on a walk soon!
