Welcome to Walkingworld

On Walkingworld you can find over 6000 routes, contributed by more than 400 walkers from all round Britain. This huge library of carefully prepared guides means you can find a good selection of walks, of varying lengths and grades, pretty well anywhere in the country. The walks come in a unique format making them very easy to follow, with photographs to illustrate every important decision point and a proper Ordnance Survey map. View a typical example (PDF)

Walks abroad

Most of the walks are in Britain but there's a growing collection in Spain and France, perfect destinations for a quick getaway. We are also building a collection of walks from cruise ports, including in Norway. Click the country in the menu on the left to browse our overseas walks.

New walks

At Walkingworld we are constantly working to keep the walks up to date, dealing with any changes and corrections immediately. New walks are also being added every month and we are currently upgrading all our walks to have the more detailed 1:25,000 scale Explorer maps. If you ever need help on using the site or advice on any aspect of walking, just get in touch using the Contact link in the menu above.

Directory entry

As a subscriber you can set up a directory entry at no extra cost. The directory is a great way to promote a guest house, website or walking group to fellow Walkingworld members. A link to your directory entry appears on every local walk.
