Before the walk:

Please purchase a ticket from our Guild Site before joining the walk. Tickets go on sale the Monday before, at 7pm.

Sunscreen is also recommended, and if there is a chance of rain, you might like to wear waterproof clothing and/or a change of clothes! 

Please also bring plenty to eat and drink – two bottles of water please as we will not be making detours en-route to visit shops.
