Places associated with Leicester’s wartime history

Sun, 25 October 2020 11:00 – 12:15 GMT

Join our group walk to visit city locations associated with Leicester’s Wartime past including the Boer War and the World Wars. This is a repeat of last month’s walk, for those who missed it.

Booking is essential as places are limited.

Booking is essential – book via Eventbrite or phone 0116 373 7589 when booking has opened . Places will not be available before. Please note our phone line is answered during office hours only (Monday to Friday, 9am-5.30pm), not at weekends or bank holidays.

If you are no longer able to attend, please cancel your place via Eventbrite or contact us by phone (during office hours) to cancel your place so we can allow others the opportunity to attend. Start location will be confirmed on booking. Please do not turn up at walks if you have not booked – we regret you will be turned away.

New Walkers

If you have not walked with Leicester City Council before we will ask you to complete our Walker Registration form in advance of the walk online or by phone. You only need to do this once and can attend any of our walks thereafter (subject to booking a place on Eventbrite).

Dress for the weather

Remember to dress appropriately for the weather.

Group size

Group walks will be smaller than before to stay within the ‘rule of 6’ which allows a maximum of 6 people from different households to meet outdoors in a public space. This includes our volunteers who lead and assist the walk.

Covid-19 and group walks

  • Please do not attend a walk if you or someone in your household/support bubble has symptoms of Covid-19. Instead, please stay home and self-isolate. See the latest information on the NHS website about self-isolating and obtaining a test.
  • If you develop symptoms within 14 days of attending a group walk, please let us know so that we can contact others.
  • During walks, we kindly ask walkers to maintain the 2m social distancing from each other and members of the public (or at least 1m if you are wearing a face mask).
  • Take hygiene precautions when you are outside (you may wish to carry your own hand sanitizer) and wash your hands as soon as you are back indoors.

Self-guided routes

If you have been unable to book onto one of our group walks, or you prefer to explore with your family or friends, self-guided routes are available to download from our Choose How You Move website or via the Go Jauntly smartphone app. Enjoy exploring Leicester this summer.
