Dursley Welcomes Walkers
We would like you to visit Dursley and go on some wonderful walks while you are here!
The town of Dursley is situated in a wooded valley under the Cotswold escarpment. The countryside around Dursley provides plenty of attractive walks including the footpaths over Stinchcombe Hill, Cam Peak and Cam Long Down where you will have wonderful views over the River Severn towards Wales and the Forest of Dean, the Malvern Hills or south towards the Seven Estuary and the Bristol area.
Dursley is situated on the Cotswold Way National Trail, the long distance trail from Chipping Camden to Bath, and is an ideal centre for walking the trail.
Every year the town hosts the 'Dursley Walking Festival', which offers a full programme of free walks for a range of abilities exploring the glorious Cotswold countryside and heritage.
The 2019 Dursley Walking Festival took place from 2nd to 6th October. The full programme of walks that took place is available from the 'Dursley Welcomes Walkers' website link below.
The 2020 Dursley Walking Festival will take place from 7th to 11th October, a full programme of walks to be announced.
