About us

Since 1935, we’ve been doing everything we can to ensure everyone can enjoy nature on foot.

Britain’s biggest and most vibrant walking community

On 1 January 1935 the Ramblers Association was officially created. We're the only charity dedicated to removing barriers so everyone can enjoy walking in green spaces, and to improving Britain’s most popular and least-known walking places. We’re committed to campaigning to keep our countryside open to all and to fighting for the things that matter most to walkers. We lead the way, and the walks, for a vibrant community united by the joys of walking, helping everyone get more out of their walks.

What we do

The Ramblers open the way for everyone to enjoy the simple pleasures of walking. And we step up to protect the places we all love to wander.
