We can’t think of a better place to go walking. Challenging hike on the fells, lakeside amble or a picnic spot with a difference, the Lake District has it all. Pick up one of 10 new Ranger Guides to make the most of your walk. You'll find them at most Trust shops across the Lakes.

Stretch your legs

Fill your boots and get out in the fresh air.

Try a longer or more challenging walk: Hare Hill circular (4 miles); Speke Hall Estate (2 miles); West Wirral Wander (8 miles, ranger led) or an Invigorating Edwardian Hike (self-led) at Lyme Park.

Heritage walks

Try a riverside walk at Wordsworth House

Walk in the footsteps of Edward Chambré Hardman, Liverpool's famous photographer; enjoy Edwardian vistas at Lyme Park or try the delightful river walk at Wordsworth House & Garden.
