In this small but ancient nation, walkers can discover Europe’s oldest living language, centuries of fascinating history dating back to the druids, and some of the best coastline to be found anywhere in Europe, within just a few days walking. This land of myth and legend harks back to a time gone by and is a wonderful place for walkers to immerse themselves in an entirely different cultures.
There really is something for everyone in England, which is home to our largest selection of walks. Coastal walking, mountainous terrain and gentle rolling hills can all be found there, but its biggest attraction is its charm. Our walks through England are full to the brim with characterful villages, inspiring architecture and centuries of colourful history.
Scotland is for the mountain lovers, although thankfully, you don’t have to be able to climb a mountain to enjoy it. Located in the far north of the UK, those who escape to Scotland will discover a wild landscape distinguished by high peaks, expansive lochs and ancient tumbling castles. The beauty found here is spectacular and quite unlike anywhere else in the UK.

Here, you can enjoy the best of both England and France, and with a circumference of less than 50 miles, they are perfectly sized to provide a complete walking experience.

From the dense sub-tropical cloud forests of the La Palma to the Moorish palaces and dramatic canyons of Aragon, the sheer variety of landscapes within Spanish quarters is staggering.
