More walks for Dawlish!

Welcome to the 2023 Dawlish Walking Festival.

We are delighted to be back with a wide variety of walks on offer and some great new walks for 2023. There is something for everyone so have a good look through our programme.

The festival is organised by Sustainable Dawlish with sponsorship from The Shoe Centre and Dawlish Town Council with assistance from volunteers. Many walks are led by community organisations and individuals who generously give their time during the festival.

  • The Principal Sponsor of the Dawlish Walking Festival 2023 is the The Shoe Centre.

The Shoe Centre is an independent family run shoe business in Dawlish with traditional values and good customer care who do a lot to support the community. Find them on Facebook at: @shoecentredawlish and their website is at: www.shoecentre.net

Sustainable Dawlish is a group focussed on encouraging locals to adopt a more sustainable lifestyle to protect Dawlish and its environment. It champions walking through the annual Walking Festival because it is very beneficial for people’s health, wellbeing and the environment. www.dawlishtransition.org.uk

Please check individual walks for pre booking and starting points. The Piazza is at the bottom end of the Lawn in Dawlish. Please arrive in plenty of time and wear appropriate footwear and clothing. All walks are assessed as to the weather conditions each day and if cancelled we will do our best to let you know, if you can follow us on social media. All children must be accompanied by an adult. Where dogs are allowed this is stated in the programme. Walks suitable for wheelchairs and mobility scooters are indicated next to each walk.
