New members welcome!
You're welcome to join our group whatever sort of walker you are. You will find us friendly and accommodating and we hope that you'll enjoy walking with us and joining in our various social activities.
If you are not yet a member of the Ramblers Association you are welcome to accompany us for up to three walks before deciding whether to join the group. Take a look at the upcoming walks programme on the front page of the website. There are usually a few people on each walk who haven't been before.

- Quarterly programme of walks, socials and weekends away
- Regular email updates on any changes to the programme, engineering works, extra socials etc.
- Eligibility to participate in weekends away and socials
- Freedom to walk with any Ramblers group in the country
- Quarterly award-winning walk magazine
- 15% discount at Cotswold Outdoor with membership card
- Your membership fee helps the Ramblers protect footpaths and walking spaces for everyone to enjoy
How do I join the Met Walkers?
To join the Met Walkers you need to join the Ramblers.
In the second section of the form, under the heading 'Your group', choose the Inner London area then the Metropolitan Walkers group. To receive communications from us, you need to provide your email address to Ramblers when you join (and update Ramblers if your email changes).
How do I receive your updates?
Once you've joined Ramblers and selected Metropolitan Walkers as your group, you should automatically get onto our mailing list and receive programmes and other communications from us. This can take a month or two, so please bear with us.
You can also join our members-only Facebook group. Once you have requested to join the group, it may take a day or two for us to process your request. If you have asked to join the group and your Facebook profile name is different to your full name, please reply to this email to let us know your Facebook name.
You can also view the full programme here by logging in using the username and password which is emailed to all members every three months.
How do I renew my membership?
If you are an existing member, you can renew your Ramblers membership online or use the paper form you will have received in the post. You will need an account on the Ramblers website in order to renew online.
We recommend that you set up a direct debit to ensure that your membership doesn't lapse and you always receive our programme!
I am already a member of another Ramblers group. Can I still join the Met Walkers?
Likewise, members of Met Walkers are welcome to walk with any other Ramblers group in the country.
