England

A walking holiday in England will provide you with a rich and diverse experience – from ancient trails to high level ridges, twisting coastal paths to windswept moors, breathtaking views to scrumptious local dining. The variety of walking opportunities is immense and as varied as the landscape, people and culture you’ll experience along the way.

Our self-guided walking holidays follow some of England’s finest long distance trails, famous for stunning lake and mountain scenery, unspoilt and beautiful coastlines, historic landmarks and picturesque villages.

Our walking packages include the heather covered moorlands and high coastal cliffs of the Cleveland Way, a traverse of the country on Wainwright’s Coast to Coast, the quaint Yorkshire villages and rolling hills of the Dales Way, and the historic Hadrian’s Wall Path.
