All programmes start on Sunday afternoon with a short introductory walk followed by four full days of walking, with a choice of walks, covering between 5 and 10 miles with time for stops of interest - scenic, architectural, local history, Lakeland traditions, flora etc.

A typical day would begin by travelling by small coach to the start, walking for up to three hours with a stop for coffee before lunch in a local hostelry or café, often with a real fire, followed by a similar length afternoon walk. For more strenuous days the hotel will provide a packed lunch.
Prior to dinner each evening there is a meeting in the Brathay Room to reflect on the day’s walking and outline plans for the following day.
