Walking in Manchester and Cheshire

Social Circle Events

A break from the city

Walking is among our most popular events and combines socialising and activities like no other. If the idea of meeting new people while taking in some of the stunning surroundings of the Lakes or the Peak District excites you, then we have some amazing events for you. We also hostr walks in Anglesey, whether it be a walking day or an entire walking weekend, and even the odd holiday in Europe in such destinations as Spain and Poland.


Getting to know Manchester

We also offer Manchester walking tours for those who enjoy learning how Manchester has developed into the wonderful city we call home. Through local walking tour providers, Manchester Guided Tours and New Manchester Walks, we offer these events to members free of charge (saving you £8 per event at the time of writing). Walks include the ever-popular Discover Manchester walk.


Putting your best foot forward for charity

Manchester is a charitable city, of course, and features numerous charity events throughout the year. That includes a number of charity walks, such as the Manchester Midnight Walk, a 10K event for St Anne's Hospice. There's also the Manchester Memory Walk in aid of the Alzheimer's Society. We are in a position to make people more aware of these events and encourage you to participate whenever you can.


So how does it work?

We know it’s a little unusual to turn up at an event knowing no one, so we don’t expect you to. Instead, we introduce you to the founders and then to the event host, who will make sure you’re feeling excited and not too nervous.

Whether it’s that you're looking for more things to do in Manchester or it's a lifelong ambition you're dying to fulfil, our Manchester activities have got you covered! Try us for Free.

Tour Of Manchester City Centre

I went on a tour of Manchester city centre, led by a guide from Manchester Guided Tours, and wow, I had no idea there was so much to the city. I had only been here for 2 months and so wasn't versed in the history of Manchester that the locals would consider common knowledge. What I found amazing was, that with Social Circle, the cost of the tour was included with membership.

Walking Weekend With Social Circle

I went on a walking weekend with Social Circle, which I really enjoyed. I was a relatively beginner at walking, so it was quite a challenge for me. But fortunately, there was a low-level option for beginners, which shows how well organised it was. And we had some great fun getting to know one another in the evenings.'

Walk In The Peak District

I went along to a walk in the Peak District, having never been on a guided walk before, so was unsure as what to expect. I found that there were 10 other walkers who were some of the friendliest people I'd ever met. I was tired at the end and was glad to finally reach the pub and have a Sunday lunch. Tired or not, I've already booked on to my next one. Fantastic day!
