Welcome to Alton Ramblers website
We run regular walks in the Alton area during the week, on Sundays and, in the summer, in the evening. The weekday walks are on Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday. One week there are two, offering the opportunity to do a short one (up to 5 miles) or a longer one (up to 10 miles). The following week, there is a medium length walk from 5 to 7 miles. The Sunday walks vary from about 10 miles to 12 or sometimes 14. So there is plenty to choose from.
We are a friendly group so do come along to enjoy a sociable walk in the beautiful countryside of Hampshire.
If you click on any of the up and coming walks in the box to the left, you will find more information, together with a map showing the location of the start.

Walk For Peace 9th September
A Muslim group is launching a walk for peace in a bid to build bridges and mend divisions across the community.
Ahmadiyya Muslims are calling on people to walk shoulder to shoulder with them at a Charity Walk for Peace to be held near Alton, Hampshire.
Rizwan Ullah Khan, of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Elder Association (AMEA), said: “Our message is love for all, hatred for none. This message is as important in these times as it has ever been and I hope that all people who want to live in peace together will come to the event and walk with us."
“This walk is inspired by tenets of Islam, of peace and understanding to your fellow man regardless of colour, creed or race. We hope to raise money to help relieve the suffering of others but also to bring people together to promote peace and goodwill.”
The five mile walk, organised with the support of East Hampshire District Council, will be held on 9 September and will run from Bentley Station to the Alice Holt Forest Centre.
The Charity Walk for Peace will focus its fundraising on local charities each year. This year the primary recipients will be Homestart Butser and Homestart Weywater and the Southern Domestic Abuse Service.
