Wild with Wheels is delighted to invite you to join us for a FREE accessible nature walk exploring Walmer Sea Front.
We'll be enjoying an opportunity to walk and talk as well as identify some of the local fauna and flora or to take photographs, as we explore the grounds taking time to enjoy the surroundings.
As it's colder, we will be changing to a later session time of 10:45am to 12:30pm (for an 11am start). We can provide blankets, hot water bottles and ponchos to keep you warm.
