Solihull Discovery Walks
COVID-19 Update: Due to new guidance on social distancing for everyone in the UK and protecting older people and vulnerable adults published on 16th March 2020 we are operating on reduced services. We will continue to update our website and social media channels regularly as the situation changes. For up-to-date information about the current UK situation please see the GOV.uk guidance page.
Solihull Discovery Walks is part of Solihull Active’s Step Into Solihull walking programme.
It is an informal walking group that is open to adults aged 18+. The group enjoy monthly walks from a variety of locations in and around the borough of Solihull. Solihull Discovery Walks explore the local area and history whilst enabling participants to enjoy the fresh air, make new friendships and engage in physical activity. Walks usually take place on the third Wednesday of each month.

The group works closely with Solihull Striders and Strollers and other local walking groups to complement the range of walks available.
