From the Big Bang to now in 20 000 steps
Walk the Story of the Universe combines an introduction to the scientific story of the Universe with an enjoyable weekend of gentle walking and fine food.
Tracing events from the Big Bang to the present day, the walk is scaled over 13.8 km with each metre equivalent to a million years in time. You will not only learn about the extraordinary events that brought us here, but also develop a strong physical sense of your place within them.
We offer a choice of two Somerset weekend walks; camping or our more luxurious eco-house weekend near Glastonbury. Accomodation is located near the end of the first day's walk, and is the starting point for the second day, so no need to carry more than lunch and waterproofs. Groups are small and friendly, with somewhere between 8 and 15 participants.
Walk the Story of the Universe is open to anyone who can walk 13.8 kilometres. No previous knowledge or particular outlook is assumed. Greg uses a variety of teaching techniques to help to make the content accessible, fun and engaging.
