About Us

The Forest Ramblers are a London walking club founded in 1884. We are generally believed to be the oldest rambling club still in existence in the UK.

Our rambles take place in London and the surrounding countryside.

We walk on the second, fourth and fifth Thursdays of the month.

All our walks depart from a National Rail or TfL station.

We start in the late morning so that full use can be made of Freedom Passes and Senior Rail Cards.

Our walks usually proceed at a leisurely to moderate pace.

We always lunch at an appealing pub, generally within two miles of the start of the walk.
