Walking is a great way to get active, get moving and is excellent for your physical and mental health. We are supporting more people into walking through a range of health walks across Ipswich, working with One Life Suffolk to deliver more walks across local communities in Ipswich.

Health Walks are led by trained leaders. The walks are graded from 1-5 based on their difficulty, with 1 being the easiest and 5 being the most challenging.

All the Health Walks are free.

To find out more you can find current walks below or to find out more about Health Walks go to https://onelifesuffolk.co.uk/services/health-walks/.
