Walking Holidays in the UK

Our Walks & Tours in the UK

A walking break is a truly excellent way to explore the United Kingdom and one that will provide as big a challenge and as much reward as you could hope to find anywhere. With our range of UK walking holidays in England and the neighbouring Home Nations, you can sample exceptional walking throughout the British Isles. There's great walking from the Highlands and islands of Scotland to the dramatic Cornish peninsula. Our walking breaks in the UK explore the fells of the Lake District and dales of Yorkshire, while others tackle the rolling hills of the Cotswolds and beautiful national parks from the Peak District to Snowdonia. Get a real sense of achievement from completing long-distance walks and pilgrimage routes, such as the Hadrian's Wall National Trail or The Cotswold Way.

On other walking holidays in the UK explore the country's magnificent and varied coastlines, from Northumberland to Norfolk, and Dorset to the South Downs. Offshore, discover the Isle of Wight and the Channel Islands, where the small but exciting islands of Guernsey and Jersey provide a real escape.
