Best British Walks

 Discovering the beauty Britain has to offer by walking is a great way to get fresh air, stay fit and see the most beautiful sights the country has to offer.

At The Coat Outlet, we love getting outside with the family and friends for a walk, whether it’s snowing, raining or beautiful and sunny. As long as you are prepared with the right coat and walking gear, you can have a truly amazing day. To make sure you are prepared check out our Hiking Checklist, Waterproof Help and Fleece Guide.

We have put together our top 5 favorite walks across Britain. From short walks to long weekend walks, we have put together a list catering to anyone and everyone!


1. We will start with somewhere close to home for us….the Yorkshire Dales. The most stunning walk in the Yorkshire Dales is Aysgarth Falls. The walk offers beautiful scenery, a small incline to keep you fit, and plenty of places to picnic along the way! There is parking at the Aysgarth Falls National Park Centre so it is easy to get to.

The walk is 2.2 miles and takes an average of 1.5 hours. Its an easy walk so anyone can do it!

2.  The Roaches – found in the heart of the English countryside in Staffordshire and home to a wide rage of wildlife. The Roaches is never too far for most people living in England as it is situated right in the middle of the country. It offers multiple walking routes, from 1.5 miles to 5 miles, so there is something for everyone. When driving to The Roaches, no matter from which direction, you will drive through traditional English countryside and see views that you will never forget. If you are making a day of it, there are plenty of eateries and pubs near by.

3. Coast to Coast – Starting in the Lake District, and spanning 190 miles, this walk is not one for the faint-hearted. This walk crosses three National Parks and will offer, undoubtedly, some of the most beautiful scenery Britain has to offer! Starting beside the Irish Sea you have a stunning walk through the mountains of the Lake District, across the Pennines and down Swaledale. Finally, the North York Moors await you and beyond them…the east coast. You can book accommodation and baggage transfers online to make it a little easier. This is a popular walk and you will no doubt make plenty of friends on the way. This is a great way for someone who doesn’t fancy a marathon, cycling the Tour de France or swimming across the channel, to achieve something amazing! It is well worth doing!

4.  City break treat – Arthurs Seat in Edinburgh. Edinburgh is a frequent destination for a city break. A historic city with lots of museums, landmarks and plenty of places to eat and drink. A city with such incredible culture also offers a beautiful walk up an extinct volcano standing at 251m. Unlike most walks, when reaching to top of Arthurs Seat you will find a view of the whole of Edinburgh and on a clear day there are lots more Scottish landmarks to see.

5.  Finally, one in the south of England. Boscastle to Port Isaac, North Cornwall. This walk is 14 miles long and passes through beautiful fishing villages. This is a great walk whilst on a family holiday. It is full of beautiful sights, coastal paths and great spots for a picnic! What more could you want?

 Happy walking !
