Hello and welcome to South Bank Ramblers' website. If this is your first visit we'd like to take this opportunity to tell you a little bit about who we are and what we do.
South Bank Ramblers formed more than twenty years ago. The group has a diverse membership covering a range of ages and backgrounds. Although most members are based in the boroughs of Lambeth and Southwark, others are drawn from a number of London boroughs or even further afield. A love of walking is the group's engine and focus; for some it is a pleasure, for others a passion.
The group provides a comprehensive programme of walks. The walks take place, most usually, somewhere in the South East of England and are accessible from London by public transport. Walks vary in length, usually between four and eighteen miles, and vary in difficulty, anything from the comfortably paced to the positively challenging. They often include an optional pub refreshment stop, either during or after the walk, giving members the opportunity to get to know one another.
Saturdays, Sundays and Wednesdays are the more usual walking days but the group occasionally organizes walks on other weekdays too. These weekday walks include interest walks within London. At a leisurely pace, the routes of these walks cover many points of interest. On occasion the group also organizes weekend trips of two or three days duration.
Membership of South Bank Ramblers is restricted to members of the Ramblers Association. Membership of the Ramblers Association can be taken out for a small annual fee. You can join online by clicking on Become a Member or, to contact our membership secretary, click on Membership Enquiries . Meanwhile, feel free to come along on a walk or two. We look forward to welcoming you.
