A walk on the Wild Side in Aylestone Meadows is hosted by an experienced wildlife expert who will lead you around the meadows and talk about the different types of insects, plants and animals found here. The meadows include some soft and uneven paths, please wear appropriate footwear. 

Our groups are smaller than before so booking is essential – see ‘how to book’ below. Please do not turn up at walks if you have not booked – we regret you will be turned away. 


Remember to take a bottle of water and to dress appropriately for the weather. 

Group size

Groups will be smaller than before – a maximum of 5 participants with one walk leader. This complies with current government guidance that no more than 6 people from different households can meet outdoors in a public space, and helps keep groups manageable. To allow opportunities to others, a maximum of 2 people from the same household/ support bubble may attend. We are sorry that we cannot accommodate more people at this time. Please follow instructions for booking places and also observe the guidance below with regards to Covid-19. 

Covid-19 and group walks

  • Please do not attend a walk if you or someone in your household/support bubble has symptoms of Covid-19. Instead, please stay home and self-isolate. See the latest information on the NHS website about self-isolating and obtaining a test.
  • If you develop symptoms within 14 days of attending a group walk, please let us know so that we can contact others.
  • During walks, we kindly ask walkers to maintain the 2m social distancing from each other and members of the public (or at least 1m if you are wearing a face mask).
  • Take hygiene precautions when you are outside (you may wish to carry your own hand sanitizer) and wash your hands as soon as you are back indoors.

Self-guided routes
