Welcome to Liverpool Ramblers
Liverpool Ramblers is one of the largest walking groups in the country. We arrange around 300 walks each year, ranging from short to long, from low-level strolls to mountain scrambling. We believe that Liverpool is probably the best urban base in the country for walking. We are within 90 minutes by road of Snowdonia, Lake District, Peak District and Yorkshire Dales.
If you enjoy:
- being outdoors and walking in the countryside
- socialising and making new friends
- being fit and healthy
then this group will be ideal for you.
Forthcoming walks are shown in the boxes on this page. Everything you need to know, including how to book, is covered in the walking pages of this site. You are very welcome to try two or three walks before deciding whether to join the Ramblers. You can join via the box on the left.
You don’t need to be super fit, own much specialist kit or have knowledge of maps or compasses. All walks are led by experienced walkers so you can relax and enjoy your time with our group. Suitable, well-fitting footwear is advisable to ensure your walk is comfortable. The range of walks on offer allows anyone to enjoy our walks and build up fitness levels.

Rights of Way Public Enquiry
The Right of Way Claim in respect of the path from Acrefield Road to Woolton Park, via Glenacres and Byron Court, is to be the subject of a Public Inquiry in 2018. If you have used the path on a regular basis at any time over the past 50 years, and would be prepared to give evidence to the Inquiry as one of the 'witnesses', please contact Mike Chitty of THE GATEACRE SOCIETY as soon as possible.
