Walking Holidays in England

The 'green and pleasant land' of England offers plenty of opportunities to get up close with nature and strike out on foot, whether you want to explore the historic towns, villages and cities or the rolling hills, moors, dense woodland and stunning coastlines – there is a scenic walking holiday for you – whatever your interests may be and the level of ability you have.

If history’s your thing, a scenic walk on lovely trails to discover some of England’s finest historic houses, castles and gardens, a rural walk of 800 years of history, art and culture from Stratford to Oxford or an exploration from Bishop’s Castle to the market town of Ludlow are some great options.

Enjoy the fantastic views of Britain’s first National Park, the Peak District as you ramble through wooded valleys and green fields or head to Northumberland for picturesque scenery as you wander through rural countryside and along long coastline.

England's capital, London, is a great destination to explore on foot - whether you fancy the gourmet delights of Borough’s Market, a play at Shakespeare’s Globe or the unique vintage fashion in Camden’s eclectic markets before a relaxing stop at an18th century pub.

Whether you’re interested in day tours or longer holidays, there are plenty of great choices, and you can choose from both guided and self-guided trips.
