Market Harborough and District Guided Walks

Discover more about this lovely area.

The towns, villages and countryside of South Leicestershire may not be a natural tourist destination, but you'll be amazed how much it has to offer for day trips and weekend stays. 

Market Harborough

A lovely market town with an intriguing past. The guided walks shine a light onto its important place in our nation's history, not to mention the buildings and people who made it the town it is today.

The Harborough District encompasses many beautiful villages. The guided village walks bring to life their fascinating back stories and intriguing past.

If you are a fresh air fiend, then why not book a countryside walk or join in the 2024 Harborough Walking Festival with insights into farming, wildlife and the picturesque countryside of South Leicestershire.

Early in the morning of June 14th 1645, the Royalist Army under the leadership of Charles I, left Market Harborough to confront 

the Parliamentarian army in a battle that would decide the fate of the war.

However, this was not the first time the town had been directly affect by the military action.

Discover the town’s role in this famous battle and how the civil war affected the people who lived there.

This guided walk for 2024 has been arranged in association with The Naseby Battlefield Project. Part of the proceeds will be donated to help in their aim to improve the visitors experience to the battlefield.
