BBC Breathing Places Google Map

Breathing Spaces

The BBC, in collaboration with Natural England, have created a breathing places event finder. The Google Map, produced in support of the project, displays 8,253 locations and events across the UK that people can go to enjoy the great outdoors.

It is possible to search the map by location. It is also possible to refine your search (via a drop down menu) for events in the next week, events in the next month and by walks in the next week or month.

The BBC are also planning to launch soon a Breathing Places - Communities map. Over 50 councils around the UK have pledged to plant trees, hold events, build wildlife homes, and share the Breathing Places message with thousands of people in both urban and rural communities. The BBC's Breathing Spaces - Communities map plans to show the location of these pledges.
