Walking

HOME CATEGORIES Walking
Walking is among our most popular events and combines socialising and activity like no other. If the idea of meeting new people, while taking in some of the stunning surroundings of the Lakes or the peak District, then we have some amazing events for you. We also walk in the likes of Anglesey, whether it be a walking day or a walking weekend, and even into Europe in such destinations as Spain and Poland. We also offer walking tours of Manchester for those who enjoy learning how Manchester has developed into the wonderful city we call home.

Tour Of Manchester City Centre

I went on a tour of Manchester city centre, led by a guide from Manchester Guided Tours, and wow, I had no idea there was so much to the city. I had only been here for 2 months and so wasn't versed in the history of Manchester that the locals would consider common knowledge. What I found amazing was, that with Social Circle, the cost of the tour was included with membership.

Walking Weekend With Social Circle

I went on a walking weekend with Social Circle, which I really enjoyed. I was a relatively beginner at walking, so it was quite a challenge for me. But fortunately, there was a low-level option for beginners, which shows how well organised it was. And we had some great fun getting to know one another in the evenings.'

Walk In The Peak District

I went along to a walk in the Peak District, having never been on a guided walk before, so was unsure as what to expect. I found that there were 10 other walkers who were some of the friendliest people I'd ever met. I was tired at the end and was glad to finally reach the pub and have a Sunday lunch. Tired or not, I've already booked on to my next one. Fantastic day!
