Bridgend’s Love2Walk Festival 2024

Bridgend’s Love2Walk Festival returns in June for 9 days of walks and experiences showcasing the very best of the great outdoors in Bridgend.

(Love2Walk Festival)

The Festival, which is being run in partnership with the Bridgend Local Access Forum, takes place between Saturday 22nd and Sunday 30th June. Best of all it’s FREE.

The programme for the Love2Walk Festival will be unveiled shortly and it’s as varied as ever with walks for families and children, history buffs and nature lovers with a chance to try new experiences

Local experts will be involved in many of the walks so expect to learn more about the Borough, its nature and history. As in previous years all walks are free of charge although some require booking in advance as places are limited so make sure you get your name down as they are sure to be popular.

Can’t wait until then, unable to take part in the Love2Walk Festival or want to explore on your own? Don’t worry as there are plenty of other ways to discover the beautiful Bridgend Coast and countryside.

The Rights of Way team promote walking, cycling and equestrian routes in the area varying from short circular walks to longer distance routes. Here’s a reminder of just one of our walks:

Bridgend Circular Walk

This 32Km circular walk aims to link most of the communities within a 5Km radius of Bridgend Town Centre. The walk passes through varying landscapes including agricultural land, woodland, common land, urban and industrial areas and runs in close proximity to various historical sites. The walk also links a number of smaller recreational walks as well as the National Cycle Network, Wales Coast Path and Glamorgan Ridgeway Walk.  

The Great Glamorgan Way

The team are also working with adjoining councils to create the Great Glamorgan Way. Crisscrossing five counties this will be a magnificent network of connecting bridleways and cycle paths. The project has enabled existing routes to be restored and created additional routes. New way markers and gates with extended handles have been installed. The project aims to create a variety of connecting trails from mountain to coast, from forest to valley, allowing everyone to explore the beautiful South Wales from their saddles or their shoes - be that on horse, on bike, or on foot.
