National Trust Great NI Walk Events


The National Trust is aiming to encourage as many people as possible to get their walking shoes on and enjoy some fun, fresh air, fabulous views and much, much more.

The walking festival will take place from 1 September to 4 November and with over 15 walking events on offer at National Trust properties across Northern Ireland and endless miles of open space to explore, there are many reasons to go walking this autumn. Take the chance to get out and discover the stunning surroundings on your own doorstep, socialise with friends and family in some awesome spaces, be inspired by the beautiful vistas and autumn colours, and get active and adventurous along the coastline and in our countryside.
