A Week's Walking With the White Cliffs Ramblers

The White Cliffs Ramblers are pleased to release their programme of walks for their walking week to be held between the 15th to the 21st July. There are walks every day designed to showcase the scenic coastline and beautiful countryside of Kent; most walks include a visit to a local hostelry, place of interest  or a theme.  

Deborah Quow the White Cliffs Ramblers walk coordinator said, “The main thrust of the Walking Week is to provide at least one walk a day for a week and offer start times and locations which we do not usually offer with a focus also on socialising during or after the walk in a café, pub or restaurant.

This year, we are pleased to say that we have two walks on six of the seven days and they range from earlier morning to late evening, the first one being a 9am walk around the Pegwell Nature Reserve ending with elevenses in the Viking Ship Café and the last one being a sunset walk in St Margaret’s taking in a drink at the Zetland Arms.

There are three new Royal Kentish Camino walks on offer and also two legs of the Via Francigena, both initially starting from Canterbury, but taking in several scenic parts of the Kentish countryside on the way to the south coast.

Other walks include a full moon walk starting in Swingfield, St Mary’s Island, Chatham and Docks, a tour of the Royal Marine Barracks in Walmer and Deal and a memorial walk from Bleriot Memorial, Dover. A walk around the Leeds Castle countryside and the Medway Valley also feature.”

Walks are free and for most walks you do not have to book just turn up. Food, beverages and entry into places of interest will be at your own expense.  All are welcome - further details and the programme of walks are available on the White Cliffs Ramblers’ website at
