Rewarding walks this season at Ilam Park

Autumn at Ilam Park

A quiet and colourful time of year to explore the limestone hills around Ilam Park and Dovedale.

Colourful walks and far reaching views


This month the colours are changing and the views are endless making it an ideal time for a quiet walk in the Peak District. Our team of friendly volunteers lead free walks in Ilam Park and beyond each Monday and Friday morning.

The drop in walks start at Ilam Park stableyard at 11:00am prompt, and each week the volunteers choose a different route across the parkland, fields and woodlands in the area.

The Monday walk is 2 hours long and on a Friday you can choose from a 2 hour walk or a 3 hour walk.

Dogs on leads are welcome to join the walks, as are children. All walks include uneven ground, slopes, hills and stiles, so please wear suitable clothing and footwear.

There is no need to book onto the free walks, just meet us at the stableyard in Ilam Park.
