Bishop’s Castle Walking Festival


in the Shropshire Hills

13 – 17 May 2017

– the friendliest of walking festivals

Bishop’s Castle is a small market town surrounded by the wonderful Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, near the Welsh border and off the beaten track. It is a welcoming place.

Our 18th annual Walking Festival will be held over five days in May, when the countryside is at its best. Our guided walks are led by experienced local volunteers and offer a great choice of walk length and terrain.  A walker’s paradise, local footpaths lead over open hilltops, through winding valleys, tiny hamlets, country lanes and sometimes the remains of ancient hill forts. The views are pretty impressive too!

Our walks are relaxed and friendly, often ending in a café or pub. We have five evening events planned, good accommodation, pubs and cafes and a very interesting little town to explore.

Full details will be available here in December. Queries by e-mail to
