Celebrating Britain's 100 favourite walks
Every month around 9 million of us lace up our boots and head out to explore, roaming far and wide across the British countryside. To celebrate this much-loved national pastime we teamed up with ITV in 2018 to discover the country’s favourite walking trails - as voted for by you.
In a two-and-a-half-hour TV special, Julia Bradbury and Ore Oduba guided us through a countdown of Britain’s 100 Favourite Walks, showcasing the finest rambles, scrambles and ambles across the countryside and through cities.
Among the nominees were over 40 of our most-loved locations which are visited by thousands of walkers all year round: from the wild and rugged landscape of Hadrian’s Wall in Northumberland to the famous chalk sea-stacks of Old Harry Rocks in Dorset.
" From one end of the country to the other, from the mountains to the sea - we’ve pretty much covered every bit of Britain that there is for hikers to explore."
On their journey Julia and Ore uncovered the history and hidden stories behind the trails, as well as the impact they have on our lives.
Below are the top 10 walks as voted for by the nation, including Britain’s number one. We’ve also included some of our other favourite walks across the country, in case you’d like to explore somewhere new.
What’s more, with every step you take on one of our trails you’ll be helping our rangers and volunteers to look after the high peaks, low valleys, woods, rivers and far-reaching views that make Britain such a walker’s paradise.
