The National Trust cares for some of the most spectacular countryside in Britain. This guide features 100 walks from across the country, from the ancient majesty of Avebury’s stone circle and the wonder of Giant’s Causeway to the dramatic peaks towering about Lake windermere.

The walks are organised by region, making it easy to explore historical sites, spot wildlife and stunning views wherever you are. The routes are graded according to ease, from two to eight miles in length, to include family-friendly rambles across parkland, adventurous hikes and everything in between.

With information on transport links, facilities, local attractions and fun stuff for the kids, along with maps of each route, this is the perfect guide for exploring Britain’s countryside and discovering your new favourite walk.
