Walk the Pennine Way, Yorkshire Dales National Park

Exploring on foot is the perfect way to enjoy the colours of autumn, and thousands of you have been doing just that. Whether you're bringing the dog or need a walk for little legs, we've got it covered. If you want to really explore the outdoors why not venture out into one of the UK's National Parks? We've got some two-day walks that will stretch your legs.

Walks with cosy cafés

Nothing finishes an autumn walk quite like a steaming cup of tea and a big slice of cake. With that in mind we've picked out some great walkers' pit-stops for you to sample. And remember, every penny you spend in our cafés goes back to helping care for special places, so don't feel guilty about having another slice.

Autumn colour walks

It's been a colourful autumn so far and there's still plenty time to get out and explore. Our outdoor places make a great backdrop for an autumn walk with so many different shades on display. Follow our rainbow walk at Stourhead and you'll be met by an array of colour, or take a trip through the mellow yellows at Speke Hall.

Walking the straight and narrow in Snowdonia

When it comes to truly great walking destinations, Snowdonia takes some beating. We want as many people as possible to explore the miles of footpaths, so our rangers are busy keeping them in order.

Our book of walks

Explore somewhere new on a Great British Walk 

If we've whet your appetite for more outdoors expeditions, then there are plenty more in our new book. From Stonehenge to Sutton Hoo, from mountains to beaches, this is a great guide to get you outdoors and exploring.

If you're heading out for a weekend's walking a good map is always a backpack essential. We've teamed up with Ordnance Survey to offer our members and supporters 20 per cent off their maps. They've also got some map reading tips and advice.

Bringing the dog?

The British coastline has to withstand some pretty extreme weather. Just walking along our coast paths you can see the changes that have taken place. Thanks to your support we're busy preparing for the winter ahead.
