National Trust’s Great British Walks

Last updated 3rd January 2017

What’s new? Autumn walks are always the best – cool, crisp conditions are ideal for a good stomp and the promise of a warming pub lunch somewhere along the way. But which walk to do? If you’re looking for a little inspiration for a great family ramble, why not check out the National Trust’s annual Great British Walks festival, which runs across the country until Sunday 3 November.

Join in with one of the guided walks (which range in length from two hours to two days), or simply download details of one of the National Trust’s many family-friendly walks from its website.

Top tips: Our favourites include the easy-but-beautiful Wicken Fen wildlife walk in Cambridgeshire; the eerie Hughenden Ghost Walk in the grounds of Hughenden Manor in Buckinghamshire; and the diverse Castle Ward walking trails in County Down.
