The 12 miles of waymarked footpaths on the Thornham Estate known as Thornham Walks are managed by the Thornham Walks Countryside Officer who is funded by Mid Suffolk District Council.

A surfaced path, suitable for push chairs and wheel chairs, leads for half a mile to the Thornham Walled Garden and takes the walker past the newly refurbished bird hide, the pets' cemetery, along the Thornham Rock Trail to the Victorian Folly. 

Walks maps (£1) are available from the information board in the main car park. An events leaflet is available from the Walks' Office, or click the link above. This gives a list of the extensive programme of activities which Thornham Walks organise.

Walks' staff are available to lead and organise guided walks and environmental activities for groups and they run very popular environmental birthday parties.

Volunteers are always welcome to help with practical work and events. The last Sunday of the month is Volunteer Day, offering the opportunity to meet new people and learn different skills.

Thornham Walks are open 9am to 6pm from April to October and 9am to 4pm November to March.  The Walks may be closed occasionally between October and January.

Dogs on leads are welcome.

Car parking charges: Monday to Friday £2 per car; Saturdays, Sundays and Bank Holidays £3, annual passes £30 (concessions £20).  All proceeds go towards the management of the Walks.

Thornham Walks are grateful for support provided by Mid Suffolk District Council and Suffolk County Council.
