Top walking holidays in Britain
If you’re planning a walking holiday soon, have you considered visiting Britain? From its luscious countryside to its epic beaches, the majestic scenery provides the perfect backdrop for any outdoor pursuit.
Below, you’ll find a rundown of the top destinations for walking holidays in Britain, with something to suit everyone. Before you go though, you’ll need to ensure you have the proper equipment.
If you’re restricted with luggage allowances, it may be cheaper for you to purchase your equipment while you’re in the UK. Discount shoe retailer Brantano has a great selection of quality walking boots, while high street sports stores will provide water bottles and other items you may need.
