Explore Leicester on a guided Slow Ways walk


As part of our autumn swarm, our volunteers Kelly Smith and Lynn Jackson will be leading Slow Ways walks to the Guildhall in Leicester on Nov 12th – join us!

Want to get involved in the Slow Ways swarm but don’t fancy walking alone? Come along to a led Slow Ways walk, meet new people, discover new pathways, and help verify routes in Leicestershire! All led walks are free to attend.

Syston to Leicester: walk led by Kelly on the Go

Join Smith on a seven-mile walk from Syston to Leicester. This route passes through expansive lakes, wildlife-rich nature reserves and the river Soar before ending in Leicester.

Narborough to Leicester: walk led by Lynn Jackson 

Join Lynn on an eight-mile walk from Narborough and Leicester. This route will take in open green spaces and stretches of the Grand Union canal before ending in Leicester.

Both walks will end at the Guildhall where you will be welcomed by the Slow Ways team, have the chance meet other walkers and enjoy a hot cup of tea or coffee. You can stay on and join us for dinner too!

Slow Ways Leicester get-together and celebratory dinner

Join us for a special get-together in Leicester on Saturday 12th November, followed by a dinner in celebration of our collective achievements over the year! Or if you’re not anywhere near Leicester there’s more on the Slow Ways National Swarm here.
