Orienteering

The Welwyn Garden City Photo Trail

Orienteering is an outdoor sport that exercised mind and body.  It is for everybody from gentle walkers to competitive runners, from age 8 – 80.  The aim is to navigate between control points marked on an orienteering map. 

Why not try orienteering at your own pace and spot some of the town’s iconic landmarks. Look for leaflets for the new Welwyn Garden City Photo trail in Waterstones and Oxfam Bookshop.
