Walking at Wimpole

A young family walking in the grass parkland

Our walking trails can be very popular. Please park considerately and maintain social distancing on your walk. To avoid disappointment please book your visit to Wimpole in advance, booking is essential at weekends and school holidays. If you do not book we cannot guarantee admission.

Please note, parts of the woodland belt in the parkland are currently closed. Tree safety management is vital to keeping both people and wildlife safe. Some areas of the woodland belt are cordoned off and paths re-routed while we work with Natural England to establish our next steps in this sensitive area. Please take note and carefully follow any diversion signage on the estate for your own safety. 

Whether it's a Sunday stroll or a 4 mile hike, Wimpole has plenty of space to stretch your legs in the outdoors so bring your family or trusty canine friend and explore.

Follow your own path

There are some downloadable walks of new and old routes around the estate below, or just follow your own way through the park, into the woodland belts or out onto the arable trackways using this Walking at Wimpole leaflet.

All we ask is that you close all gates you come across to keep our stock in and any dogs are kept on short leads in areas where there are sheep and cattle.  If possible please give our livestock a wide berth to avoid disturbing them.
