Talgarth Walking Festival


Every year Talgarth ‘Gateway to the Black Mountains’ Walkers are Welcome Group are delighted to welcome you to Talgarth’s annual Walking Festival. Walkers are Welcome Group consists of a mixture of local businesses, charitable organisations, accommodation providers and passionate walkers and local residents who want to see our town thriving. We hope that you thoroughly enjoy your experience with us and return to our town in the near future.

Our programme has a variety of walks and events for all ages, from full day walks to town walks lasting a little over an hour. There is an opportunity to acquire better navigational and map reading skills, go on a foraging walk, visit some local gardens, and learn more about the geology, natural history and archaeology of the area.

The walks are graded according to difficulty of terrain under foot as well as the amount of ascent and all are led by experienced walkers and walk leaders, whose knowledge of the local area can’t be beaten. The programme provides the opportunity to be led by local experts through spectacular scenery, whilst learning something new about the history and landscape. Most of the walks start in Talgarth, with one or two requiring a short drive to nearby car parks with more ready access to the hills and one walk uses public transport.
