Woodland walks 

Majestic landscaped woodlands and tranquil tree-lined avenues are the perfect spaces to get closer to nature, particularly in autumn when they burst with colour and wildlife.

Cycling is a great way to keep fit and explore the countryside around you, so dust off your bike and hit the trails. From cruising along the flat routes of Wicken Fen, Cambridgeshire, to tackling part of the Olympic road race at Box Hill, Surrey, there’s something to suit everyone.
