Wandsworth Walk4Life is an accredited walking scheme that offers a series of free walks around the borough.

Our walks are led by trained walk leaders who can advise and guide you towards building up your physical activity at a pace that suits you. The walks are free and you can just turn up.

We also hold volunteer walk leader training, so if you’re interested in becoming a walk leader and leading or supporting a walk within Wandsworth, please contact us on 020 8871 6373 or email us at activelifestyles@wandsworth.gov.uk
