Bishop's Castle Walking Festival 2018

Bishop's Castle is a small, medieval, market town surrounded by the wonderful Shropshire Hills AONB near the Welsh border and off the beaten track. It is a very friendly place and one of eight designated 'Walkers are Welome' towns in the county. 

Our nineteenth walking festival takes place 16th - 20th May and offers a great choice of five walks every day, all beautiful and all guided by local people who know the area. Walks vary between five and sixteen miles.  They take walkers over wide open hills, though winding valleys and tiny hamlets and past ancient hill forts and there are some amazing views.

Our walks are friendly and informal and often end with tea or a pint and most cost just £3.00. We have five evening events planned, good accommodation, two breweries, six pubs, numerous cafes and and interesting little town to explore.

Join us at the friendliest of walking festivals:
