Surrey and Beyond Ramblers (SABRE) is one of a new generation of Ramblers groups that challenges the traditional Ramblers image. Our mission is to encourage people of any age to get out there and walk and hike all over Surrey and beyond at the weekend and in the week. We are internet based and our membership is mainly drawn from Surrey, South West London and to a lesser degree the surrounding counties. You can get more information from Eric H our membership secretary. Please email him at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
We are part of the Ramblers, a charity that works to protect and maintain the network of footpaths in the UK.  


Cornwall - 2014

The SABRE walks programme has a choice of two or three led walks each week in Surrey and South East England. Typically we have around 16 or more people on each walk, come rain or shine. In our programme you'll find everything from short easy strolls up to energetic 12 mile hikes. We organise social events and walking mini-breaks around the UK and abroad.


Lunch in the sunshine

Many reports show the benefits of walking including a report published in the Ramblers “Walk” Winter 2013 magazine which identifies 20 health reasons for regular walking including a reduction of 35% in the risk of developing heart disease and related strokes, a reduce risk of dementia, improved sleep quality, prevention of diabetes and a reduction in the risk of getting some cancers and improved chances of surviving other cancers.
