The joys of a winter walk 

Don’t let the cooler weather put you off exploring the great outdoors. Brave the cold and you’ll be rewarded with landscapes transformed by low sunlight and dustings of frost. Our official partners at Cotswold Outdoor reveal what they love most about walking in winter.

Listen to our walking podcast series 

Did you know that we produce podcasts which you can listen to for free? In the latest walking episode we’re off to Wicken Fen in East Anglia for a walk through the National Trust’s oldest nature reserve. Here, open skies meet narrow waterways, giant reeds sway in the wind, and herds of wild ponies run free. We’ll set off on foot, exploring the multi-use trails that allow easy access to this other-worldly place.
