Leeds Combined Arts provides monthly Arts Walks which are designed to suit people who prefer a gentle steady walk of between two and eight miles.

These walks are at a gentle pace and are ideal for people who would like to become fitter and enjoy walking, but would not be up to doing a longer walk at a faster pace. During the walk we usually incorporate some Poetry, Story-telling, or Music, and we sometimes include visits to a stately home or Art Gallery or other place of

The walks will be mostly accessible by public transport and we also encourage car sharing. The Walks also encourage you to enjoy local natural spaces whilst benefiting your health by taking part in the walk and will often include visits to natural heritage sites and stately homes.

Although these walks are of shorter length please consider your ability when attending any walk and always come equipped with appropriate clothing including waterproofs, walking boots and warm clothing.

Participation on any Leeds Combined Arts walk is at the individual's own risk. For further information about any walk please contact the walk leader. For general information contact us on 0113 269 0356.
