Welcome to the Red Kite Ramblers web site.

We are a walking club located in the North East of England close to Newcastle upon Tyne. We run a walking programme with planned walks every other Saturday throughout the year. You can download the walk programme for 2019 here.

Walking distances are from around 8 miles up to 13 and the areas covered range from Northumbria, the Lake District, the Scottish Borders, the North Yorkshire Moors and Yorkshire Dales. You can get more information about the club on the About Page.

On walk days there are usually 4 planned walks depending on the numbers of walkers out on the day. A coach from a local coach company is used and there are often seats available for individuals who have not pre-booked. You can check the pick-up locations from our Contact Page.

Walks cost £10.00 and membership for the year is £20.00.
