How to Find New Walking Friends, Partners, Companions & Walking Groups
Want to walk but got nobody to walk with? Not everyone wants to go walking alone. No-one to share the view, no-one to share the experience, no-one to share that warming cup of tomato soup. Besides, all the experts say it is safer to go into the hills & mountains with experienced friends, companions and partners.
Making new friends is never easy - but if we help you meet just one new walking partner you'll be mighty glad you joined.
This is how it works:
Our Find a New Walking Friend Service has been completely redesigned for 2018 and will ask you lots of questions about what you are looking for and where you like to go walking and hiking. Whether you like short or long walks, if you like scrambling, walking with dogs, camping, hill bagging, walking in the snow and rain . . . all sorts of things to help people like you to find people, well just like you.

The go4awalk.com Find New Walking Friends, Partners and Walking Groups is designed to put walkers who like walking (like you) in touch with fellow walkers who like walking (like you).
It is about forging friendships and sharing the countryside with kindred souls.
We know it works because lots of people mention other go4awalkers they have been walking with in their message replies*.
However, we did receive the following:
'Meeting Somebody Special
I came into UK appr. 6 years ago and since I was always feeling lonely until nearly 2 years ago when I discovered www.go4awalk.co.uk. My biggest hobby is hiking since my childhood and I love nature - it was logical I wanted to find somebody with the same interests. I registered with your website and answered two friendfinder inserts. One of them was a real gem! I found my soulmate. The attraction was immediate. Soon we moved together and now we are planning our wedding. If we got day off from our job and a weather is not so bad, we always go for a walk somewhere nice. Andy is a perfect man for me and he teached me lots about the english countryside. I'm very thankful to you (Andy too), because with your help we met each other. We wish lot of success and luck to you and to your website. Kind regards: MG, Hailsham
So you'll never know if you don't try!
