We are the Hampstead and District Group of the Ramblers' Association. We are one of nine groups within the Inner London Area and, as our name suggests, most of our members live in the London Boroughs of Camden and Islington, although some come from other parts of London and surrounding counties. We are a friendly group of people who come from all walks of life and who share a love of walking.
We have a comprehensive programme of walks which cover most of Southeast England and all of which are accessible by public transport. They range in length from less than 5 to over 20 miles and in pace from slow or easy to positively fast. We aim to have a walk on most Sundays, some Saturdays and a few on weekdays, mainly Wednesdays.
Our walks can be found on the Walks Finder by clicking here

Please note that a number of our Group's walks are not on the Walks Finder or in the printable programme. Details of these walks are only in the Group's programme which is sent out to members and associate members.
We also organise weekends away and longer holidays and earlier this year we had a long weekend at the HF Holidays house in Dovedale from the 15th to 18th March, a five night holiday in Nerja on the Andalucian coast of Spain from the 11th to 16th May and a five night holiday at Windermere in the Lake District from the 27th June to the 2nd July.
The next holiday planned is a four night New Year break from the 28th December 2013 to the 1st January 2014 which will now be based in Oxford. This holiday is being organised by Jane Rosoux, the Walks Organiser, and if you are interested in joining the party or would like more information you can send her a message via the "Contacts" page.
From the 11th to 14th April 2014 there will be another long weekend at an HF Holidays centre, this time at their new centre at Lulworth Cove. This holiday is being organised by, Maija Roberts, the Treasurer, and if you interested in joining the party or would like more information you can send her a message via the "Contacts" page.
