This is the web-site of the Epsom & Ewell Group of the Ramblers Association, which is one of 16 groups in Surrey and about 400 groups in England, Wales and Scotland. We organise walks of various lengths, usually on four days per week, usually in Surrey but sometimes further afield. Members can also enjoy a walking holiday or two with the group every year, and occasional social events. You are welcome to walk with us two or three times to see how you like us before deciding whether or not to join the Ramblers. The next few Epsom & Ewell Group walks are shown on this page, and you can find the full programme (updated three times per year) by following the Walks link above.
