Sorry, but no dogs other than guide dogs are permitted on guided walks. I know your’s is really well behaved, but I can’t let some dogs and not others!

Please provide  the following information for all members of your party in the “Additional Information” box on the payment page :

Please ensure that  all members of your party come suitably dressed for the weather, season and event.

On all walks, for your comfort and safety, walking boots/wellies, waterproofs and spare clothes are necessary. I always recommend wellies for coastal foraging events – you are likely to get wet feet if you don’t have them!
