Discover some of Julia Bradbury's favourite National Trust locations for walking and follow the routes she travelled in her 2016 ITV series, ‘Best Walks With a View’.

For each episode Julia picked out a family-friendly trek that can easily be done in a morning or afternoon. The series followed her up hill and down dale, along valleys and coastal paths, across rivers and streams, and through fields and woodlands.

Special National Trust locations featured in five episodes of this eight-part series, from the high peaks of Borrowdale in the Lake District to the coastal cliffs of Golden Cap in Dorset. As well as taking in the spectacular views, Julia also uncovered local history, met the people who live and work in these beautiful locations, and discovered the best spots for a pub lunch or a picnic.

Here's a taste of the routes Julia explored in the series, which you can discover for yourself by visiting her website 'The Outdoor Guide':
