Julia logo jacketWherever you are in the UK, you can be sure that there are plenty of walks to enjoy. From pub walks to history walks, city strolls to rural rambles, circular, coastal, long distance and even one mile circuits you can time yourself on! Our Instructors are trained to locate, risk assess and plan walks that are easy to access, near to vital amenities such as parking and toilets and suitable for those in their groups. There are lots of resources available to help them to find walks to include in their schedules and for any of who may be venturing to an area of the country we have not explored before. Here are our favourites:-

WALK 4 LIFE logo-walk4lifeThis site has a bank of over 91,000 walks of all distances. many of them urban and fairly short for those of us trying to fit in our daily 10,000 steps!

NATIONAL TRAILS There are lots of National trails in the UK including iconic routes such as Hadrian’s wall and the South West Coastal path.

Another mainly urban walk and route finder – full of useful information to help you plan a walk from A to B but we find the adverts a tad annoying. Does contain information about walking and can help you to cram more steps into your daily life! Click here to go to the site
