Top Places to Walk This Easter

Easter is just around the corner, and it's the perfect time to get outside and enjoy some quality time in the great outdoors with family or friends. For those with kids, maybe you want to get them out of the house and into the fresh air exploring new and interesting places during the holidays. If you’re looking for a bit of inspiration, we’ve got you covered. In this blog post, we’ll take a look at some of the best places to walk this Easter – perfect for spending time with those you love.

So, let’s jump right in and explore some of the top spots for you to enjoy...

 

Lake District

Lake District National Park

Top of our list of great places to walk this Easter is the Lake District National Park. The Lake District is an area of outstanding natural beauty, and there are plenty of walks to suit all abilities. With its stunning scenery and miles upon miles of walking trails, it’s the perfect place to explore with family or friends.

One of the most popular walks is from Ambleside to Wansfell Pike, which takes in some of the best views in the area. If you’re feeling a bit more adventurous, you could try the 12-mile walk from Keswick to Buttermere – it’s a challenging route but definitely worth it for the incredible views.

Snowdonia

Snowdonia National Park in Wales

Snowdonia is another great option for those looking for a challenge, and it's an old favourite - especially for those camping and caravanning in the UK. There are plenty of walks to choose from, but one of our favourites is the Snowdon Horseshoe – a circular route that covers some of the park’s best features. The walk is around 11 miles long in total and can be quite strenuous in parts, but the views are amazing, and it’s one of the best and most scenic walks in the UK.

Malham Circular

Malham Circular Walk: Janet’s Foss, Gordale Scar, Malham Tarn & Malham Cove - Yorkshire Dales

If you’re looking for a more gentle walking experience, the Yorkshire Dales National Park is a great option. There are plenty of shorter walks available, and the scenery is just as stunning as in some of the other national parks.

We recommend the Malham circular walk – it’s around six miles long and takes in some of the best sights in the park, including Janet’s Foss waterfall, Gordale Scar and Malham Tarn. Malham Cove is a must-see – it’s a huge limestone cliff that’s popular with climbers and walkers alike.

The Cotswolds

The Cotswolds: Bibury, Castle Combe & More

For those wanting a more relaxed walking experience, the Cotswolds is a fantastic option. This area of England is home to pretty villages, rolling hills and plenty of country pubs – perfect for a pit stop along the way. There are plenty of circular walks available, but we recommend starting in Bibury – one of the most picturesque villages in England. From here, you can follow the river into Castle Combe before heading back through pretty fields and woods.

The Cotswolds Way National Trail is another renowned favourite. The whole trail runs for 102 miles from Chipping Campden in the north to Bath in the south, but there are plenty of shorter walks available if you don’t fancy doing the whole thing - many of which can be completed in a day.

The Peak District

The Peak District: Monsal Trail, Tissington & High Peak Trails

The Peak District is one of the most popular walking areas in the UK and it’s easy to see why. With its stunning landscapes and miles of trails to explore, it’s the perfect place to spend a day (or two) walking.

Our favourite is the Monsal Trail - an old railway line that’s been converted into a traffic[1]free path - perfect for walkers, cyclists, horse riders, families with young children or those who want to take things at a slower pace. The trail runs for eight miles from Coombs viaduct to Bakewell, and there are plenty of places to stop along the way.

If you're looking for something a bit more challenging, the Tissington and High Peak Trails are both great options. The Tissington Trail is 13 miles long and takes in some stunning scenery, while the High Peak Trail is 17 miles long and runs through some of the most picturesque parts of the Peak District.
