All paved, with one steep incline, up Park Street. The rest will be mostly flat.

Join us for a leisurely 10k walk, taking in some of Bristol's most famous sights - and all on tarmac/paved so no mud! 

Our start and end point will be the ever popular Wapping Wharf, home to a shipping container community of shops, bars, and restaurants. We'll make our way around the harbourside, past our first Banksy of the day, the 'well hung lover' on Park Street, before taking in the beautiful architecture of Clifton Village. 

No trip to Bristol would be complete without a visit to Brunel's famous suspension bridge, and we'll be using it to get to Ashton Court where if we're lucky we might spot deer. We'll stop at Ashton Court Mansion, before heading down to the Cumberland basin, where we will head back along the harbourside, stopping again to take in the view of the stunning SS Great Britain. We'll also be able to get up close to another of Banksy's famous works, 'The girl with the pierced eardrum', before our walk concludes at Wapping Wharf, where some of us may wish to stop for a drink or some food before heading home.
