Women on Foot


Walking is a wonderful way to get some exercise, to see a new part of a city or a corner of the countryside.

It’s a wonderful way to socialise and network too.

When you’re walking you don’t need to keep eye contact and this can be very useful when challenging and difficult conversations are taking place. In all my years of walking with women I have observed the most frivolous and lighthearted conversations one moment and the next, a very deep and serious discussion.

Walking allows for all of that.

I’m Heather Waring and I’m a coach and walking expert.

Women excel at building relationships, at looking after others and in doing so, they are great at talking.

Women on Foot is a great opportunity to take some time to invest in you, your health and wellbeing; of putting yourself first and if the opportunity arises, doing business in a different way!

But you don’t have to be a business woman – you can be a woman who enjoys the company of other women, a woman who has chosen to take a day out from her job or her life to look after herself, a mum who is child free for a time and choosing to spend her day in this way.

A bit more about Women on Foot

With “Women on Foot” we have weekend walks each month. We alternate the weekend days as much as possible so that one month the walk is on a Saturday and then the next month on a Sunday.

This is a day of fun and adventure but also of investing in you, your health and wellbeing and of putting yourself first giving yourself the gift of ‘time out’ and of space to do and think and ‘be’. You could be a business woman; a woman who enjoys the company of other women, if walking on a Friday, a woman who has chosen to take a day out from her job to look after herself, a mum who is child free for a time and choosing to spend her day in this way; a woman who loves to walk and wants to do more of it; a woman who wants to make new connections.

At the end of the day you’ll:

– come away refreshed and with a clearer head having had a day in the fresh air

– have met great women

– have chatted, shared and learnt

 – have enjoyed coffee and lunch stops and perhaps an after walk drink

– feel energised and exercised

– be looking for the date of the next event..

This is time and space for you and it’s going to happen once a month. If you have any questions, click the button below.

Can't make it to a London event?

At present Women on Foot only happens in London, but I’d love to invite any of you who would like to set up a group in their area to get in touch and we’ll help you do that.

What other women are saying

Women on Foot for me is all about enjoying time out in the company of others, walking and talking in the fresh air and discovering new and intriguing places. I like the opt out points which give flexibility to the walk and reassure those coming along that they can break off for a range of reasons without feeling guilty or stranded.

Olivia Lowe, Buckhurst Hill, Essex

Fabulous day yesterday, Heather – brilliant walk, thanks so much for organising it.


Here’s what I was up to today, walking in North London through parks and along a disused railway track and it was lovely, even in the rain. So many parts of London I have driven past, and never knew what was only a few metres away. Thank you, Heather Waring for a lovely day. So glad I came.

Susannah Alexander, North London

I have no stiff muscles today after doing what you said about raising my legs. I really enjoyed the walk yesterday.

Teresa SHEA, Rochester, KENT

Another wonderful walk, always a great day, with a chance to interact with new people, to get some fresh air, do something different and be healthy! And usually a good variety of inclines/small hills/flat, enough to get you out of breath, but not kill you!

Nicola Slade, South East London

An energising and uplifting walk in the forest.  I went home relaxed, stress-free and enthusiastic about life in general and I’m really looking forward to more of these walks.

CARol Darvell

I feel very calm and grounded just after a couple of hours walking, with the luxury of time and space to think.  Thank you Heather for making it possible and please book me in for more!


I ignored my very long to-do-list to take up Heather’s invitation. It was perfect as far as I was concerned. I enjoyed being out doors in the fresh air, not only engaging in nature but also engaging with myself. Some of the exercises helped me to reconnect with the ‘present’, and one in particular helped me let go of some ‘baggage’ of the past.
