Walk For Wards 2024

Walk for Wards at Wilton House

Sunday 7th July 2024


Our huge annual sponsored walk around the beautiful Wilton Estate is held by kind permission of Stars Appeal president, the Earl of Pembroke.

  • There’s a choice of 3 routes – the family friendly 3k, 5k (which doesn’t take in the woodland area) or the more challenging 10km route!
  • All walkers must register in advance. It’s free to enter and includes lunch and admission to the Wilton House grounds and huge adventure playground afterwards.
  • Walkers are encouraged to raise a minimum £20 sponsorship for their chosen ward or department but we hope you’ll raise lots more! Click here for further details of the wards and departments at the Hospital that you can support.
  • All routes will start at approximately 10.30am.
  • Everyone who comes along must be registered to take part. We cannot allow access to spectators. Family and friends are welcome to join you at 11am once Wilton House opens for public admission, but they must pay the venue admission fee.
  • No dogs allowed. Please do not leave dogs in cars.
  • The routes are not suitable for wheelchairs.
