From Norfolk to South Downs, here are our favourite UK walks to try
It may not have the lofty peaks of the Alps or the epic thousands-of-miles treks of the United States, but the UK is – in its own humble way – a truly world-class destination for walking. Well signposted paths and hard-fought-for land access mean that anyone with stout boots can unlock the British landscape – from blustery Yorkshire fells to salty Cornish cliffs.
With lockdown hopefully easing in the months ahead, banish any claustrophobia by planning days out on the trail – our list of UK walks comprises smaller sections of long-distance routes (where possible with good public transport links) to suit all abilities and for all seasons. Please note that at the time of writing, outdoor exercise in Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland remains strictly limited to local areas. People should not travel from England to other parts of the UK to go walking.
