We’d love you to comment and send us your stories, too. It's all about that little bit extra to share between us.

Ideas for autumn walks and cycling

Autumn is approaching, and we would like to suggest some great autumn walking and cycling trips for you to enjoy. Take a look at our suggestions on our autumn in the British Isles guidebooks, and autumn and winter overseas guidebook information pages, or dip into some of our Blogs.

autumn in the Lake District

If you're only planning to take a few days away, why not choose a selection of individual downloadable routes, rather than taking a complete guidebook. If you find you enjoy the area you have visited, you can always buy the whole guidebook for further adventures in the future. Simply 'browse routes' on any one of our book pages on the website.

Walking in the UK

Check your knowledge of the Countryside Code here. Think about some walks in your local area where you can increase your fitness, then maybe plan to tackle something new – maybe your first national trail next year, or walking in an area new to you.
