It might be the end of summer but that doesn’t mean we can’t all get out and enjoy the fresh air. In fact, autumn is one of the best times of the year to get out and explore the British countryside. With the kids being back at school, popular places are a lot quieter, and the beautiful autumnal colours are all on display across the country.
All you have to do is get some walking maps – you can find a walking map from the map shop and decide where you would like to go – you are spoilt for choice with lots of national parks all around the country, there will definitely be a place that you can get out and enjoy the great outdoors – here are just a few of them…
Head to the stunning coastline of Wales in Pembrokeshire National Park. The best way to see the sea is from this fantastic walking route, the Pembrokeshire coast national trail. See the wildlife that abounds here, from the seabirds nesting in the cliffs to the seals bobbing in the sea.
Get your walking boots ready for one of the most popular walks in the UK – the Penine way. This spans across 3 National parks and takes in the amazing countryside from the Peak district to the Yorkshire Dales – at 268 miles it is certainly a challenge, but walkers are rewarded with a stunning array of scenery.
Cyclists will enjoy the South Downs way – with over 100 miles of countryside to experience, the trail spans across the entire South Downs National park, where you can enjoy the woodlands as well as the beautiful coastline of the region.
