Tiger Bay Ramblers (TBR) is a walking group for people of working age. It is based in Cardiff but walks across South Wales and beyond. Its members organise a range of walks to suit all abilities, as well as social events, weekends away and holidays.
See our full walks programme for more information about these and other walks.
Crug Mawr and Pen Cerrig Calch
A fairly challenging walk taking in two different mountains, with an option to go over Table Mountain as well. This walk may be of interest to anyone entering the Platinum Route of the Abergavenny Three Peaks Trial as it follows a large part of that route.
Salmon Leaps Walk, Dinas Powys
A leisurely 5 mile stroll through the woodland and countryside surrounding Dinas Powys.
This is the Valeways Salmon Leaps walk. Further infomation is available here - http://www.valeways.org.uk/files/walks/11.pdf

Cefn Eglwysilan from Senghennydd
A leisurely walk up a local hill that doesn’t get as many visits as it should.
From Senghennydd village we climb gradually up to Mynydd Eglwysilan Common, and its medieval dyke. After taking in the trig point on Mynydd Eglwysilan (355m), we continue to the slightly higher Cefn Eglwysilan (382m) offering broad views from Cardiff and the Severn to the Beacons, and across several valleys.
From there, it's a pleasant descent back to Senghennydd and an early finish.
Severn Bore Walk in Wye Valley
This is a short walk which will follow Tony's visit to see the Severn Bore phenomena. Its in the Forest of Dean, and will take in Symonds Yat and Biblins bridge.
Please note the 7am meeting time is for those wanting to see the Bore. For anyone wanting to do the walk only please meet us at the walk starting point.
Following the visit to watch the severn bore, the idea is to then do a shortish walk on the way home, in the Forest of Dean. On this walk, we will visit Symonds Yat, before making our way down to the river Wye and following it to the Biblins Suspension bridge. From here we'll follow forest tracks to return to our starting point at the Bracelands Camping Site. Keep your eyes peeled for Deer, Peregine Falcons and wild Boar..!
For anyone wanting to see the severn bore, we will leave Cardiff at 7am and head to the Severn Bore Inn, Ministerworth (about a 1 hour 15 minute drive), parking is limited so please car share from Pontcanna where possible. The 4* bore is set to arrive at 8.46am. We will leave Ministerworth at around 10.30am to meet at the walk start point

Valleys Rail Ramble: Return to Ebbw Vale (Special Sunday Edition)
A long time ago, on a walks programme far, far away... the first valleys rail ramble set off from Ebbw Vale, sparking a rebellion against the twin tyrranies of circular walks and car sharing. Now, twelve walks and 120 miles later, this one-off Sunday edition closes the circle and brings us back to where we started.*
As it happens, this is the longest and probably most strenuous so far, at 15 miles long and 3,000ft of ascent. The walk starts at Pontypool & New Inn station, and after a flat start we climb over Mynydd Llanhileth to Six Bells near Abertillery. From there we climb steeply again onto Cefn yr Arail and along the ridge to Mynydd Carn y Cefn before descending to Ebbw Vale town.
The combination of distance, ascent and pace (we do have a train to catch after all...) means you should be confident of your fitness before joining this walk.
*Sadly though, this isn’t the last valleys rail ramble. Despite zero popular demand, there will be two wholly unnecessary sequels before the rebellion is finally crushed.
