Fall in love on a Speed Dating Walk

Singletons could meet the love of their lives on the Speed Dating Walk taking place on the Isle of Wight this autumn.

As part of the island's Walking Festival kicking off at the end of October, the annual trip will see participants explore stunning woodland areas and scenery while they mingle with some new faces and potential love interests.

So far, the Speed Dating Walk has resulted in five marriages and a baby, so who knows what it could have in store for you this year.

Whether you're just looking for friendship or a lifelong companion, the adventure promises to be great fun for people of all ages and even if nothing comes from it, you'll still benefit from a brilliant day out getting to know the amazing countryside of the Isle of Wight.

Taking place on October 27th, the walk will begin at the Beach Cafe in Sandown and continue down Sandown Bay, which stretches along most of the island's southeastern coast.

It will head towards the Fisherman's Cottage in Shanklin, where the group will stop for a quick coffee, before lunch is served back at the Beach Cafe.

Lots of people have already registered, but there are still a few places available if you think it sounds up your street. However, don't leave it too last minute.

Organisers of the event said: "We would love to see you - and don't worry, it is such a relaxed walk, and gives you the chance to chat to a bunch of friendly people with stunning views to enjoy." So don't feel under pressure to get a sixth Speed Dating Walk wedding underway!

There are lots of different walks being arranged as part of the Walking Festival, with more than 100 due to take place in total, including a Fossil Hunting Guided Tour and Downs & Coastal Walk. Visitors and locals alike are free to join whichever routes they wish, and it won't cost them a penny.ADNFCR-3083-ID-801641386-ADNFCR
