What You Need To Know

All participants in the Gower Walking Festival do so at their own risk and are advised to take out their own personal insurance. GWFA does not accept responsibility for walker’s safety or personal property while taking part in the Walking Festival.

The cost of the walk or event is to cover our administrative costs, insurance for the events and the Eventbrite booking fee. Bookings are non-refundable unless we are forced to cancel an event, in which case a full refund will be given to all participants of that event. Any profits made will go towards costs for the following year’s walking festival.

Walk meetings points are indicated by the START marker on each walks web page. Grid reference is also on web page.

Most walks are circular (returning to start point). We offer free transport back to start point at the end of the walk for those walks that are not.

All distances and duration of walks are approximate.

Walks will start promptly, so please ensure you arrive at least 10 minutes before.

Check bus times as they may have changed since the publication of walks. We have worked with local public transport to coordinate start times with bus arrival times.

Car owners should be observant of local residents and businesses when parking in Gower. Please park sensibly and secure your car with no valuables showing.

All walkers will need to supply an emergency contact phone number to be written on a wrist band provided at the start of each walk.

Please wear suitable footwear and clothing and be prepared for unpredictable weather. An inadequately dressed person could affect the safety and enjoyment of the whole group, so we reserve the right not to take a person who is not properly equipped. We recommend you carry a drink (preferably water) and sun-protection. Remember to bring any medication you may need during a walk.

Where there is an opportunity to enjoy a picnic lunch, please bring your own, and any snacks if you feel you need them en-route.

Dogs are welcome on some walks and they must be on short controlled leads, and owners must carry ‘poop’ bags and use when required. We walk near farm animals and wildlife. Assistance dogs welcome on all land based walks.

The walk leaders and back markers are volunteers, but many have had training. There will be one first aid kit provided for each walk. If you choose to leave the group at any time, your leader is no longer responsible for you.

In the event of adverse weather or unpredicted obstacle, the leader may change the route or reduce walk length in the interests of the health and safety of the group

Young walkers are welcome, but if aged 16 or younger, they must be accompanied by an adult.

We ask that walkers refrain from smoking during the walk time.
